Hello From Southern Maryland

894 24
Happy to be here. Just pulled the trigger on a 68 3 Speed I6 yesterday. Looking forward to a backyard budget build to putz around town in. I spent my fair share of time turning wrenches but I’ve been behind a desk the last 13 years so I’m gonna ask a whole lot of dumb questions a teenager would ask. Oh and I’m cheap. Always making trade-offs between time, & money or personal preference vs OEM Specs.

Welcome! Looks like it's already a driver. Nice find. I'm in your neck of the woods too. There's a Car's and Coffee every other Sunday in the Hobby Lobby parking lot. It's a good place to bring a vintage car like that and chat with other car guys in the area.

I’ll have to come check it out for sure when I get a chance.

Welcome. Anne Arundel Co. here.
Nice basic car. "Cheap" is good. It only gets really expensive when you're either (1) fixing rust or (2) hot rodding it a bit. If you keep it basic, it's fun and affordable.
Remember, the only dumb question is the one not spoken.
I suggest (as I always do) getting a Ford Shop Manual from one of the many Mustang parts vendors or Amazon. I got mine at National Parts Depot (NPD), one of many good vendors. Also get their catatog.
You might want to check out Mike's Mustang near Accokeek. It's a junk yard with lots of Mustangs of all ages.

Welcome to the club! Nice car you’ve got. We spend a lot of weekends on the Northern Neck, not too far from you. I’ll have to check out the C&C at the Hobby Lobby sometime and definitely Mike’s Mustang.
