Hi group!
I have a 66 Mustang that I am going to start restoring in the spring. Of course, I need to replace floor pans, trunk pan, partial sub-frame repair, quarter panels, and a new fender. I have not done a restoration before, so I figured I have all winter to plan my attack, and learn whatever I can before I actually start the job.
I have been told by a few people that I should use this car for parts, and buy something a bit more solid to restore. While I can see some of their reasoning, I look forward to the challenge of saving this 40 year old car from the scrap heap. Then again, If I find that I'm just hacking it up worse than it already is, I won't be out much.
The car is a 66 coupe with a 6 cyl auto. It is Emberglo with Emberglo and parchment "Pony" interior. I figure if I do a good enough job on it, I may upgrade it later to a V8... then again, I may leave it alone at that point and get another project with a V8.
