Went a checked out a 66 GT convertible advertised in the Dallas Craiglist. White with Emberglow pony. First indicator of problems was the T code. Second was NO FORD VINS anywhere on the body. The entire front end was replaced, and no transferred VIN stamps, or cut out of the old VIN.

What it did have was a tag riveted onto the door opening quarter panel of a reassigned VIN by Florida of a 66 Mustang Convertible.

The VIN was 6T08T11800x (last digit masked to protect the innocent). Never saw one of those before.

Now the good part. Looking inside the front wheel wells, to the back for the cowl/door pillar structure: Black Fiberglass mesh. Not even fully impregated. :crybaby: Both Sides. Front frame rails: Heavy work, straightening, welding, etc. Didn't get far enough under to see if the frame rails were clipped or just worked to death.

Exterior "looks" fine, white with red GT stripes, and the emblerglow pony interior (incomplete).

Somebody will buy this thing, and take a bath. :deadhorse:

Sounds like it will make a nice Thelma and Louise stunt car for Hollywood.

+1 for that. A perfect Hollywood car.
We all know how well they like to chop up already existing Mustangs for their movies/stunts. The red "GT350" Nicholson and Freeman use, and the 12 Eleanors come to mind.

Sad thing is that some poor sap will eventually buy the car and probably pay $18K for it.
