This is what I bought back in September 2017. - note incorrect spoiler fitment, painted side stripes etc.


Will post more pics of latest appearance once I prove that I am able to do so.

Continuing where I left off -  P O 's did me a few favors like Magnum 500 wheels and what has been described as a 7 1/2 out of 10 paint job. Not sure what the color is - may be Gold Glow or Medium Copper - or just something that got the painter's attention ?

They also left me some surprises - a very sad FMX that needed a serious cash injection and some dodgy floor repairs which needed attention.

My plan was to restore / reuse as much of the genuine parts as possible.  Repair / replace what needed to be done, use repop items when all else failed or these would do the job and simply live with the rest ( such as the blacked out hood section & locking pins )
 
Marti shows this as being " Blue Glow metallic " and ordered as a T 5 through the FORD retail sales division.  It has been used & abused over time but I see much worse on this forum.

This is the mixture of goodies up front.

And the interior with a steering wheel from a golf buggy ?  Some may like it - please don't be offended.

Note exhaust chopped off too short, rear valance off the mark, no infill piece at the bumper ends.

The engine is a 351 C transplant but runs fine.  Number on back of the block behind left side head reads 2A2030308.  Any ideas where this may have come from ?  They've dropped a 4 V intake with an old Autolite carb but I can live with these.

I took off all the basic bits, cleaned it up & re-sprayed closer to the correct color.

And this is progress at approx two months back.

Massive assistance from local Mustang owners and sources such as this forum.  I found out things I didn't know I didn't know ( like the lock washer behind the remote mirror control knob )

More up to date pictures shortly.
