New to this forum, joined last week. Located in Southeastern WI.
I recently had my 1967 Mustang 289 3 speed repainted in Northern WI.
This was sitting in my dads garage for 25 years, my son in law and I made it come back to life!
This car means a lot to me because it came from my Dad, and plan on keeping it in the family.

Nice car Randy!
What did you have to do to get it in running condition after sitting so long?
Usually many things have to be addressed for reliability.

Nice ride, Randy. Isn't it a bit cool in WI for a convertible? I know convertibles are a bit rare here in the PNW due to a bit the wet stuff.

Yea that's one nice lookin' pony! Never seen one dark charcoal grey, but it looks sharp! Don't keep us hangin', let us know what you had to do to bring it back to life, any mods, and what would you do differently...

Congrats on fixing up your dad's '67, and getting to do it with your son-in-law; no doubt a bonding experience for the two of you. I look forward to hearing what had to be done to resurrect the car, as well as maybe a few "before" pics.
