Purchased in 1993 for $1000 from the original owner who had the original fog lamps and tail pipes in a box. When I purchased it you could put your feet through the floor boards up front. I had new floors welded in during 1994 from the torque box back to the rear frame rails. Blew the motor in fall 1994. Parked it until summer of 1996 after rebuilt motor was installed. I drove it for 2 years then parked it again until 2008 fall. Then started the restoration/restomod with the replacement of all rusty metal and a good list of hop up parts. Estimated completion date April 2010.

I finished installing the 1968 Mustang updated American Autowire kit. I have never done wiring before and the kit made it as easy as I guess it could be. I spent about 50hrs getting the old wiring out, planning the new wire runs and pulling and crimping...
