Here she sits and waiting for some TLC! The speedo shows the original mileage since 1966. The bodywork looks a little rough but the vehicle is solid except for the right rear quarter panel that needs replacing. I have one of them ready to go on along with the wheel housing. I will take some pics of that as it happens.
The last three pics in the gallery are from the trunk where everything was thrown in there.
If you look at the very left hand side of the first trunk picture you will see the wire loom stuffed in the quarter panel wheel well in what was left of a box. I took the headlight doors out that are sitting on top of the new radiator, and attached what I could to try to make the car look like it hadn’t arrived out of a scrap yard. This was more of a psychological attempt to make me feel just that little bit better about my project I was about to well and truly immerse myself into.
Here are some pics after the first part wiring install. Just to try and see if the engine runs. But you can see the rest of the car how it was before the new wires were added. From this point on I started to document things properly as “One man and his Mustang” Blog was born.
