64 1/2 D Code Coupe,
Today, I went to the junkyard for to get some nuts and bolts...much cheaper than the auto parts store. What I found was a 66 Mustang Coupe with a 289 2V C4 Tranny. The hood and trunk lid are beyond repair. It probably needs a whole new right quarter panel and the front frame rails need attention. But all the glass is good and it has Power Steering that doesn't show any signs of leaking and a tight steering column. Plus it has a bench seat in the front in good shape. I bought it for a song. I believe I am going to salvage the power steering and put it on my 64 1/2 along with the 16:1 steering column, probably have the steering box rebuilt just because. I was able to turn the engine by pushing on the fan belt and pulling up on the fan so the engine isn't frozen. Someone put a sunroof in it. I didn't look to see if it opens. I assume it doesn't. It also doesn't appear to leak judging from the interior. I could part it out. Other than the hood, trunk lidand front frame rails the rest looks pretty solid. It also came with a clear title. I haven't decided. what I will do after I swap out the power steering and steering box. It took me 7 years to finish my 64 1/2 coupe.
