Oooohh yes it can..Zero rust{well not zero} allways something somewere..lol but everything solid....Most just dust and dirty and leaves that blew in...My area real good for old cars..Low humidity most of the time....paint gone..But even with a good power wash and power spray the motor...next vid it will look nice just from that...Plus get the tires up on it...Get it out from behind there..Had to cutt away a bunch of crap just to get it this far..2 tires held a bit of air atleast..lol...Got to find some junk tires to throw on it till i get some rims or uses the ones it has...eeeeek forgot to get a shot of them..there solid aluminum drag racing rims

Nice mustang II. I am also in the process of restoring a 74 for my nephew. He will be turning 16 this winter and I want to have the car ready for this spring for him. With all those leaves make sure you check the cowl. Mine has lots of leaves in there and I cant find a good way to access them to get them out. You can see a bunch of leaves through the slots. Do you know anyone repopping the front seat upohlstry? I found carpet but no seat covers yet. Anyways nice looking projects and good luck with them all.

Ty all!! Ya i like that econoline my self..Looks good next too my red mach 1..lol....Not many made that like...Its was a option ford offered for a short time...Called a spring special..mostly came in poppy seed red like this one..You got crome down the side like a falcon futura...tie downs for a bed cover...White steering wheel....Special low back seats....3-way wiper settings...Regular only got 2 way...crome bumpers...Regular got painted ones....Crome around the head lights and such....Funny thing is i was reading it was a free option...But not many new about it and it was for a short time..Dealers didnt say a word about it..Only a few mag adds showed it....So i heard its estimated only 90ish or little more was made...out of the 4,000ish econoline trucks made that year...I didnt know till i started to research it a bit..neat old rigs!!
