I recently traded my 95 Corvette convertible for a 67 Mustang convertible. I had the Corvette for 17 years and loved it dearly. But it was well worn out and needed work and I just didn’t want to put time into something I wasn’t able to drive much. The wife just got a 2019 GT so I put the Corvette up for sale. But I was going to take trades. Finally I had someone offer me an interesting trade, an 06 GT in nice shape. But not what I was looking for. Half joking I told the guy I would consider a 65-66 Mustang convertible. He said what’s wrong with a 67?

Not much. ?

So now I own a project. Yes, it’s rusty and wasn’t repaired correctly and it’s a six but those things can all be fixed. A 289 is in its future but first fix the floors, frame, cowl and who knows what else.



I’d much rather have a car I knew was repaired by me than someone else. Then I know if it was done and how poorly it was done.

It’s currently stashed at my cousin’s nearby as I need to rearrange my garage. There’s 4 bikes in there and the wife’s car. It’s... snug.

So the plan is to get it on the rotisserie and address the underside. I’m going to learn to weld the hard way, I mean the easy way, with lots of practice! So welder and probably plasma cutter in my future.







Advice and prayers welcome. ?

Nice.
It appears to be an early '67 because of windshield washer hanging bag. But looks like rear quarters have been replaced for the '68 style because if no vents ornaments behind the doors. ??? A '67 only thing.

It's got a NON-IMCO Autolite 1100 1v Carb...so it appears to be an early '67 at that... probably has the early steering column too... (Spear-O-Matic) which I actually prefer over the later collapsible one..

Well, It looks like at least you got a FREE new paintjob....cha-ching.....lol.....

:eek:)

I suspect the quarters are these:

When did they change the washer bag?

In the middle of the 67 year they changed to a plastic jug more like a modern car. Nice ride ! And welcome to VMF !

Nice score OP. You should consider starting a Build thread.
You can count on it.

As I think I mentioned I need to rearrange the garage and once the car is here I can start that build thread with lots of disturbing pictures of rust. Although some of you might be immune to rust pictures.

Dave, welcome to VMF. I learned how to weld when I acquired my 69 Coupe, & I have since replaced about 75% of the sheet metal. Make sure when you purchase a welder you get a good one. I got a Lincoln welder that runs on 220V & has done everything I have asked of it.
