Eric’s Family Mustang

Talking with my brother in law a few weeks ago, he mentioned he is trying to figure out what to do with his dad’s mustang.

In preparation for talking to some shops, I took some pictures to document the wide array of issues that need some attention.  It turns out this is a pretty good starting point for a before and after.  I wish I would have done this years ago as well, before I took then engine out and changed out the front brakes. Reading more today, I also wish I had kept the original spindles in a box somewhere at least.
