    1965, for my sister in law. A lot bigger project than my 71. It's a decent car, she paid $2000 for it and its been last reg'd in 91. Floors are good, appears none to little rust

    Yep, he's painting it. Was going to paint it myself but figured it'd come out nicer if he shot it. The mustang is a little rougher than I would like. Definitely not a steal but a fair deal, you could probably find a better foundation.

    Wow, was I off.
    I've restored a couple of early Mustangs..............last one being a 66GT.
    You're young..................it's just a lot of work but looks like a somewhat solid start. The last one I restored you could still by OEM sheetmetal, and I had to replace both quarters and all of the front sheetmetal as it was a California GT that had been in a front ender...................2 years of hard work.
