I’m the third owner. Very little rust. I’m going with the original color, lime gold with a black vinyl top. I don’t like the original green color for the interior so I’ll probably go with black to back the vinyl top.
I like the looks of vinyl tops but they can be a pain if moisture gets trapped under it or it starts to develop rust issues years down the road, it's not always immediately noticeable and can spread quickly underneath. Just something to think about. I love that you're going back to original with it! Good luck on your beautiful project!
What 289 is in there?
IMO cinnamon interiors are best.

That’s badass man!!
I love seeing younger generations appreciating these classics! I'm gonna go ahead and follow so I can see the progress!
Same here! Keep up the progress OC
You're going to learn a TON. Have fun!
My dad’s teaching me everything! Barely started and I’ve learned so much! I’m learning to put in new floor pans now! Thanks!!
That’s pretty rad
Hell yeah! What’s the drivetrain?
I got an automatic transmission & a 289 engine
Good little engines 🤙🏼 just make sure to take your time. It’s not a race.
No, not drive train. Drive mustang
Cargo space? No, car go road.
We did this exact car in high school. Very fun, excited to see it come along!
I’ll definitely keep posting updates!
Why the green interior?
Nice! You’ll fall in love with it. I have with mine!
Have fun and don't give up! When its finally finished, wherever you park it you'll get the satisfaction of looking back over your shoulder at it, and you'll do that forever. Hell, I even do that with my daily, lol!
Wow! Cool project for sure. Best of luck!
Jealous! Gorgeous looking car, so much potential
Coupe or fastback?
Excellent, I prefer coupes myself, this is a 65/66 right?
I thought this was a 67 but didn't want to comment wrong hahaha I have one of these I resto-modded then crashed a few years ago. Still have it, still feel bad
Whoops I thought it was a 69
That's awesome! Have fun and learn lots 😁
Looks like a fun project!
I'm am more jealous than you could ever imagine, I love first gen mustangs but where I live they are super hard to find.
That, is quality! Enjoy the project and the time with Dad! I bet he’s excited beyond words too!
Dad is so excited, he’s built about 6 mustangs before this one! We’re also working together on a 55 Chevy as well! We’ve definitely gotten so much closer
I'm jealous of the 55, one of my favorite cars.
Younger generation car loving girl here. You go girl! There’s not many of us around and I wish you luck on your project. Waiting for my dad to bring out my mom’s 67 firebird. Wish me luck! Keep being dope as hell.
Good luck!!! I’m excited for you! Thank you!
Body seems to have very little rust, from what I can tell. Should be a very good platform to start with. How do the floor pans look? My Camaro's exterior sheet metal is in very good shape, but I've seen managed to find some holes in the floor pan.
Floor pans were a little rough, whoever had it in the past ended up putting new floor pans on top of the older ones. So we’re getting rid of that mess lol...
Being a mustang you’d think that there’s literally no part you can’t get. For some reason though I think those front vent windows still aren’t being produced. That info might be outdated though. Regardless, if you’re in the north Georgia area I know where quite a few 67/68 parts cars are(my backyard included) lol.
I prepped and painted a car at about your age - was nice to learn that I could do it, and nice to learn that I personally never wanted to do it again haha
If that's your go-to sanding outfit, you'll have plenty of sweet pink shirts and purple jeans in no time. In all seriousness, best of luck, and enjoy the process
Tell me more about how immediate your nose is
How sweet lol I’m sorry you’re so miserable to try and out others down. I’ll pray for you sweetie 🥰
wat. I just thought your username was funny 🤷🏼♂️
Dog I’m sorry lol, I never paid attention to the user Reddit gave me bc I never cared to change it 😭😂 people have been really weird and mean recently, so I just assumed you were too. My bad!
Well fuck those losers! You got a sweet mustang, that’s all that matters here. And your nose. The nose is important 😉
Also, I didn’t know Reddit was generating random usernames for people. That explains why I’ve seen so many new accounts lately in the format Random_Word_321
I appreciate man! Again, I’m sorry for the confusion!
Good luck with it! Mustangs are great.
Awesome car, you're going to love it. Congrats!
whats your plan for her!?
Awesome project! Enjoy!
This is my goal once I can figure out a job. When I turned 18 earlier this year I got the urge to finish my grandpas willys Jeep which will be a whole new learning experience for me.
Fantastic. I sure wish my daughter (now in her mid 20s) was into car restoration like I am. Enjoy that Stang!
It's gonna turn out so sick! The garage and surrounding even look dope, nice calm place to bring that beast back to life. I always wanted a 67, one day tho 👌
My first car was a 68. I loved it.
The gas tanks on these are very unsafe. Look into it before you start driving it around.There are solutions.
I'm jealous! You're so lucky OP. Enjoy!
Man. Screw the haters. People who doubt it's yours or if your into it or any of that. Annoying. They don't wrench.
Love all the cars, encourage all the builders. Help solve the problems, help find the parts.
The car culture is hella negative and full of jealously and envy. Our positive wave can change this!
She a beauty! Good for you boo
What car is this? I’m just not sure by looking at it
67 mustang couple! It has an automatic transmission and 289 engine
>67 mustang couple
But I only see one lol
Careful with those motor mounts, they’re a one year only and impossible to find reproductions, so hang on to the old ones and have new rubber put in them instead of ordering ones that say they work
Nice, I like the first mustangs
I don't normally like ford's but I hope this project goes well
Fuck off dude :)
What's your budget?
Guys do not go for those auto body mechanics who are not using any auto repair shop software in their garage, because it takes many days just to clear the bills and payments as well as remaining car parts which are not documented anywhere..
Hey you want a 2002 4.6 2v Aluminum Block engine with worn timing guides?
you know it's a project if it doesn't have headlights lol
Haha, I do have headlights, I have almost every part I need. The guy who had it before me was planning on sand blasting everything so he took almost everything apart
my miata doesn't have headlights yet. no point in surrending money on bulbs I don't have wires for yet
The car looks like a lot of work too.
A lot of work, but it will be worth it!
Doesn’t need a pic of your daughter for attention lol
"wahh i'm a jealous baby"
Lol that’s me, I’m the daughter. f*ck off my page my dude. It’s the only photo o have of it currently after sanding the top.
that’s the joke.
But It’s really hard to take another pic lol
Lol, I live in an apartment and leave the car at my parents. Not that it’s your business, sorry you’re jealous of my new baby 😘
Do not paint it, looks nicee
Patina ain't for everyone
Patina is for everyone
