Inspection on a 66 convertible GT near Chicago, IL.

Good afternoon all. New member looking to catch the Mustang bug.

I have a 66 Mustang Convertible GT located just South of Chicago that I need an inspection on for a possible buy. Can anyone recommend a knowledgeable person in the area that could give me a top down inspection and opinion on a car for possible purchase?

I'm in Chicagoland. I'm no expert but I rebuilt my 68 Mustang in high school and I am just finishing up a frame up rebuild of a 66 vert so I am reasonably knowledgeable. I could probably get there in the next few days. PM me if interested.


If you are looking to pay somebody, Mustangs of Chicago might be interested. I've been working with them on a couple things and they seem to really know their stuff.

His name doesn't have the PM option so he may not have enough posts to PM.

I was beginning to think that I am dumber than I look after not being able to find the PM option. Yes, very new, as in just yesterday, so definitely not enough posts if that is what it takes to PM. I can receive mail and reply to them, just not generate at this point.

OK, I E-mailed W.E. so we'll go from there. If it is the car and car owner I'm thinking it is, he's in good hands by an honest restorer/hobbist.

Roddster, your e-mail must of been lost in the ether. I don't see it in my inbox, spam, or junk folders.
