Second 66 Mustang, this one Convertible

Hi guys,

I bought a new old 66 Mustang to restore, (fully restoration)
I bought it through eBay on Ohio and I am importing it to Spain.





This is the second Mustang I buy in this condition but I will repair and have fun.

Thats the spirt That will be a beautiful car when you save it from its current forlorn condition. Mad respect for all you folks outside of the USA tackling projects like this. Getting parts must be quite a chore.

Quite the project but at least it looks like its all there.
Would it be best to load it up with new parts to avoid importing them later?

Looks like a great project. How much do you have to pay for shipment and import?

Hi all,

Note that yes, everything is more expensive in Europe for Mustang, but also Mustangs here are more expensive, so do you win? No. Do you loose? No. You just get equal.

Thanks, I plan to ship it with some parts. I also buy parts from CJ Pony or Classic Industries (more difficult international with them) and with CJ to ship the parts in a big shipment is OK, (about 1000$ for 5000$ Parts Order + Taxes)

I am planning to ship it with floor pans and quarter panels, small parts I usually travel often to US so bring them with me and declare them, or ship them as the cost is not so high.

Hi Guys,

I already bought some frames and complete floor pan, will be delivered on Tuesday.

Now I am thinking on the configuration, I do not have the option plate yet, nevertheless, in the pain I think it would be original red and I am thinking on what kind of interior I would like to add, black as it has today or white. Also would match the top color.

I personally like the white, and my wife the black.
She tells me that the black is bad boys and white is classy

I would choose white as itís very clean, but of course that clean will became dirty with ease.!
Black is fine too, my Convertible is black, but I hadnít the option to choose.!
If you finally paint it red (red resale! I wouldnít paint it red unless that was the original color!), the white trim with white top looks a nice combo. On the other hand, black trim with black top looks maybe more common to me.. but of course very nice too. White tops are nice, but I am biased here, my Vert has it white.!!
I will first try to know which was the correct color of the car and then decide..

Try NPD for parts - I found their shipping rates were good, and they have a dedicated guy who deals with international shipping.

The bad part of NPD is that you cannot get the total on internet, and that is a big missing point for me because I do simulate depending on the number of parts, etc.

My current favorite color combo would be sapphire blue exterior and a white pony interior....sapphire blue was a 66 Shelby color, but could be special ordered, and while white was a 65 pony interior color, I think it would look great....you could also do the blue/white pony interior with a LeCara or Motolito wood wheel!!

The real trouble is not NPD service, which we all know and agree is #1.!
The problem is we have to deal with Customs once you have paid for the parts and shipping.! Thatís the real PITA.!

Thanks. I want to see the original option she got, but if it is blue... then I will be going for it.
