1967 Mustang Coupe project.

So i bought a 67 for a thousand bucks. It still had a plate on it that expired in 77. The guy I got the car from was issued his title in 76 and it only had 98,000 miles on it. It had been in a barn for 30 or so years and spent the last couple in a field. The rodents filled the car with sticks and body fluids and everything in between. I got the car home and cleaned out everything. Everything for the car is there, but the floors are gone. I ordered floor pans and plan to restore this sweet car. It's a 289 car with a 4-speed. It was originally an automatic but was converted years ago.

Sorry fellas, still no pics. I did get the new floor pans in place. Just final fit and weld. I cleaned a nice area for her and got her out of the weather.

Got the driver side welded in, I am currently working on the passenger side. then I have to patch the transition and replace the entire trunk floor and passenger rear lower quarter panel. Slowly but surely.

I bought the rails thinking that they were bad, but when I peeled the floor from them, they looked good. The car was barn kept for the last 30 years, it was just that some animals made it their home and all of that urine ate the sheetmetal, but didn't destroy the structure.

sorry for the belated responses, i've had a lot of personal issues come up and really haven't worked on it too too much, but in god's hands all is well. I buy only from cj, best prices, best shipping, good parts. i got most of the car down to bare metal and ospho'd for now, it's really a solid car. Had quite a bit of bondo on the passenger door, looks like they didn't bother to try to straighten the sheetmetal. I have the guts out of the door so i'm going to try to massage it as best i can, worst comes to worst, i'll change the door. I'll see if i can get some pics up.

Well I thought I had more, I'll get some newer ones on here soon. I have replaced the trunk floor too. I have a gt rear valence with the two cutouts, for my interior door handles, I'm going to use cockpit door handles off of a Eurocopter AS350 helicopter. They aren't too far off from the mustang handles and they look good and they mean alot to me. I've been a black hawk mechanic for a long time but now I rebuild a-stars and I came across a pair of handles that will be sweet inside the stang.
