4 years ago, in February of 2012, I started thinking about restoring the ’67 again. 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.
On March 6th, 1993, I purchased this 1967 Ford Mustang coupe from a fellow fire fighter. It was nearly identical to the one I have a lot of great memories in from high school, and I had to have it. Even then, it was far from perfect, but it was mine and it was awesome.
