Wow that's awesome

Well anything in decent condition is like 14k :p
At this point, I'd be willing to buy one an throw it in a shed until I get my professional degree :p

If you do all the work its not expensive at all compared to the other parts you need. My car was a complete rust bucket, floors ,lower cowl ,batter apron and tray , trunk drop off ,quarter and the panel that goes between the trunk lid and rear window both door skins were all replaced it is A LOT of work but at the end its satisfying to know i saved this mustang from slowly rusting back into the earth so if only the body panels are rusted but the frame rails are good then i wouldn't so quick to dismiss it and also a lot of people cant say that you replaced the metal and built a whole car by your self. I know if i had a chance to go back id do it allllll over again. It has been quite the experience that has made me a lot closer with my dad and grandpa iv been pretty lucky Financially to do this project and have not taken that for granted once which has made even more special. So in the end it isn't necessary about the final amount its worth but the memories you get out of.

What do you guys think?
I'm a sophomore now.
You cant find a driver for that but, you can find something. Your best bet is a project that someone can't finish. But the body work is done with no tranny or engine, etc. but that stuff can be purchased. The body iDisk what you're looking or with minimal rust. It'll b a project, but can be done.

Currently 17 and am getting pretty close to finishing my 68 coupe. My dad got it because one of his workers owed him money and it sat in our driveway for years because my dad had never got around to fixing it because of time. He had tons of classics when he was in highschool. So I began working on it the summer I was 16 and have been getting it foxed little by little. Everything floor pan down is new, new interior, new paint. I did all the work myself besides putting the upholstery on my newer model seats, and spraying the paint. Although idid all the sanding and wet sanding during primer stages. Got a newer motor from a 96 and rebuilt it with a 5500 cam, performance intake and gt40p heads from a cobra. Going for the restomod type so that it can be a daily driver. If you have any questions I can probably help with some stuff. Click image for larger version

Alright I'll let y'all know. It's going in next week. I had to get a different flywheel, different harmonic balancer and some plugs for the heads because on the newer ones they have something that goes there but if you put it in an older one you don't have all the requirement crap on the new ones so it'll blow fumes from your heads right on your firewall. I could have explained that better but couldn't think of what it was called

Here is my story, at 13 my Dad and I bought a 66 mustang torestore for my Mom who was 16 in 1966. Shealways wanted one. The restoration wascompleted when I was 14 and my Mom drove it for a year. She got tired of no power steering, powerbrakes and the southern California summer proved to be too much without AC. So it sat for a year until I got my driver’slicense and I started driving it at 16. My Dad past away that year so it was the last project we got to work ontogether. Needless to say I still haveit and I am currently 33, the sentimental value makes the car near priceless tome. I have been a Mustang guy eversince, despite the fact that my Dad was a Corvette guy.

The whole right quarter was messed up from a terrible replacement job. That took a lot of bondo. Not too much rush the guys before us replaced the floor pans so that looked good. I ran into spots that didn't want to work themselves out so I put in many hours of body work and now my friend is gonna perfect it.

This thread reminds me of high school when I bought this 1968 GT for $2500. It was originally an S-code big block car but came with a 302 and had been refinished a different color. I remember one time rebuilding the front end and trying to get the ball joints off with a ball joint remover tool and a hammer. I had been going at it for a while with no luck when my dad came home after a bad day of work. He said down and gave it hell and those parts came off right away. I sure miss those days working on the car with my dad. Sadly I sold the car a few months ago but am planning to get a 65-66 fastback down the road. Hopefully my 16 year old son will be willing to help.

18-year-old here. As a graduation present to myself I sold my 1999 v6 mustang which I owned for almost three years (parents bought me it before I got my permit but too good of a deal to pass up.) I always loved the look of classic mustangs so, of course, my first irresponsible decision as a legal adult, I buy my beautiful, beautiful death trap and could not be happier with her. 1969 Grande with a 302 Click image for larger version
