1966 Mustang Where do I start?

Are there any good books or classes you recommend on restoring classic mustangs. I have a 1966 Mustang and i have little money, but i know i'll be kicking myself if i sell it and i also don't want it to sit and collect rust, so i must learn to fix it myself. Any help is appreciated. Where do I start? I am a young man and don't have any support, I am doing as much of this as I can on my own. Thank You.

Definitely try Amazon.com they have plenty of books on cars. I know I picked up a book about the Ford's small blocks from them, and hopefully soon I'll pick something up on the Mudular motors and the 5.0.

the first step is to figure out what you actually have as in condition, what looks good may be full of rust, once you figure out if that car is worth restoring or not then you can start the process by figuring out your budget, your REAL world expectations of the vehicle, and how much time, resources, and money it will take (the budget is usually MUCH more in the end than expect just FYI unless you take shortcuts. Also the level of restoration you wish to accomplish plays a big part.

First off you really need to get a shop manual for the 66. It will be orange and about 2" thick. Covers a lot including electrical. Then what I did was pick an area of the car and start dissecting it. Fix or repair/replace and rebuild. Then move on to the next area. I would start with the electrical. If it's a running and driving car. Go through the obvious and work your way around. Good luck. Check out Dallas Mustang, or Virginia Classic Mustang for literature.
