I am looking to purchase a 1967 mustang
body shell, it costs about $9000. what i would like to do with this car, is add a relatively traditional interior, nothing too "custom", i'd like the engine to be a 351 windsor, 4 wheel disk brakes, and keep most of the other parts original. suspension set up, etc.
this car is going to be a daily driver, and will not be taken to race. perhaps a show or 2, but never racing or museum quality, so not all the parts need to be the best money can buy. can anyone give me an approximate estimate as to the total cost of the finished product?
also, would it be wise/more cost efficient to have all the components installed by a regular mechanic, and then have it taken to a resto shop to have all components tuned, painted, etc. or just have it all done at the resto shop?
1 more thing, i wouldn't mind sticking a modified "Eleanor" body kit on it, does anyone know how much one of those kits goes for?
