Lets see where to begin.......body mounts, brake lines, all electrical connections, any hard lines that are bolted to the body anywhere, and BE SURE TO brace the body when you lift it(I assume yer not gonna take it off piece by piece) cause they will bend and you might as well throw it away then. good luck man.

no frame

Crawl underneath and check. I don't believe that the mustang has a frame. It uses uni-body construction. I have seen plans somewhere on the web where they made a framework of a couple of old rims and some iron to stand the car on it's side in order to work on the underside. My advice, good jackstands.

No removing the Mustang body from the frame. Its unibody, so either put it up on jackstands and work on it or buy a rotisserie so you can rotate it and work on it.

save your money

In the end you will be much better off investing your $3000 in a "sound" car. For only 100, I can't imagine that you got much of a deal. I have seen a lot of "starter" cars for decent prices.
