    '67 is my favorite year of the Mustang pony cars. Is it a 289 car? Be careful getting her going again. If she's been sitting that long there are a few things you need to do or you could destroy her.

    Foot, If you are not kidding about that car being yours, please drive it around the neighborhood for a while before you attempt a road trip or just rent a trailer from U-Haul and tow it. Seals, brake cyl boots and any number of misc. things dry out and fail easily after sitting that long. Don't want to hear of you or yours getting hurt in an accident. Thanks.

    What he said. I'd start with all new hoses, belts, clean the gas tank out, complete brake job including rebuilt wheel cylinders and master cylinder, new brake lines, new fuel pump, new tires, complete inspection of front end, tie rods, a-frame bushings, new rear end dope, transmission inspection.........and that's before I brought it home if you don't trailer it.

    Yep. And if you're not up to it, let's talk. That car deserves a good home.

    your post are spot on - just need to take the time to "get r done"...

    The History of the car

    Original owner bought from Albany Ford
    My stepdad purchased for $1000.00 from the guy he knew at work in 1982
    He let me use while in college
    Upon graduation he handed me the Title.
    We had another car that was more road worthy and was moving to Orlando, traded him back the Mustang for the other ride in 1987
    It's been unspoken that I would "inherit" or be able to purchase the car as it was still MY car so to speak - as I never really wanted to trade back but had to for work,.
    He's allowed me to buy it a year ago and I am grateful...it's been driven along the way (some) and will crank now with hot battery.
    It needs about 1500 to get show room ready
    Never wrecked/no body work all original
    76,000 miles
    straight 6
    3 speed
    no A/C
    am radio
    white with red interior
    I really want to keep it in the family and pass onto to the Grandchild - I let a F1 Ford 1 Owner slip out of our fam 7 years agao that was all original and drove as new....# stupid

    Signed: My StepDad still has a Hupmobile that was the 3rd car delivered to Albany passed through his fam - cranks and runs to this day. When he started dating my Mom in 1982 - he showed up in a Plymouth Challenger or Charger and tossed me the keys...he has been in Auto all his life and is for sure a Car person - NASCAR is his thang!

    Sounds like a great project. And definitely worth the effort. Don't put it off, you'll have a blast tooling around the mountains once she's ready.

    Those Mustang 3 speed trannies were absolute garbage if I remember correctly. I used to "fix & sell" a lot of cars in the 70's and 80's. We used to pull them out and replace with the automatics out of Fairlanes. I would keep an eye out for replacement 3spd trannies/parts if I were keeping it for the long haul.

    Have fun Dave! What a car to take for Sunday drives!

    My place to store the car just fell through, not bringing it up until I can secure an inside garage.

    Bring it up anyway. It's not like you can't afford to put it in a controlled environment storage facility and get it off the open carport. And you can move ahead that much quicker on the restoration.

    have no clue what one runs...what kind of cabbage we talkin
