Re: Been Working on the 65

Just bought my son a 65, This will be our first restoration project, not for show but a nice driver. The car is very solid and has 80% of the original parts and only 55,000 original miles on it. Also will be getting the original title.
I hope we are getting a good deal, I paid $2,750 for it. Runs good and has a lot of new stuff with it.
Any advice?

Re: Been Working on the 65

I'd say you got a great deal. I used Mustangs Unlimited when I restored my 68 coupe. Anyone there can help with an order, but if you need advice, ask for Kevin. Sometimes he's hard to get cause he's their early model specialist. He's not afraid to spend time with you on the phone and talk about your project. Glad it was a toll free number! He helped me out a lot on my car. He saved me money when certain items could be found at my local auto parts or hardware store. Very helpful if you're doing a daily driver vs a concourse show car. By the way, I paid three thousand for mine in 1986. It was a good running 289 three speed car. Don't know how many miles were on it as the odometer didn't work. It looked good from the sidewalk, but up close the body and paint needed some help. We took about nine different colors of paint off of it when I finally got around to starting the job. Hope you and your son post a few pictures here when you're done! One of the best things I did on my pony was replace the gas tank. It was very inexpensive and easy to do. I would recommend adding an inline fuel filter if you choose not to put a new tank in, just because of how old the car is.

Re: Been Working on the 65

Gas tank replacement is a great ideal on any older Stang due to the garbage that can collect there over time.
