1965 Mustang Fastback

This beauty is in great condition.  It has been passed down three generations and found its way to our shop for a complete restoration.  So, we introduce you to...... 

This 1965 Mustang Fastback has been passed down for three generations from grandfather to grandson.  In its heyday it was a show car, fully decked out in shag carpeting in the interior and even a bit of fuzz on the underside of the hood.  

Tear Down and Repair

It is easy to tell that this vehicle was stored indoors.  There was very little rust found on the vehicle at first glance.  The only moderate repairs needed at this point are the floor boards on both sides.  So, we're going to replace them.  
Gas station sign numbers don't quite meet our standards for repair material, so we had to remove it.  

It appears as if one of the previous colors was red.  

At this point we are removing body parts and the engine/trans.  Progress is smooth and we hit no snags or surprises along the way.

Here, we have removed the engine and trans from the Mustang.  It's going to stay original, so the 289 engine is going to be rebuilt.  We are going to install 4 wheel disc brakes and rack and pinion power steering.  

The body and panels have been primed.  It turns out that there were about three layers of paint.  The exterior paint job of orange and yellow, red below that and even a layer of baby blue.  

While removing the parts, we stumbled upon some factory numbers.  It appears as if the bumpers are original parts.
