I have owned this 1965 Mustang convertible since 1980 and have “restored” it four different times. Each time I restored the car, I added or changed something from the original black with red interior, 6-cylinder automatic car I originally bought.
This was probably a car I should have NEVER purchased in the first place. It was a rust bucket from Rhode Island, but as I replaced one panel after another, and made other changes along the way, I got pretty good at doing that sort of stuff. Currently, it is the red car you see with a 351W engine and an AOD transmission. I have also upgraded the brakes with a Granada disc conversion and converted the steering to a rack and pinion with electric power steering. I have now owned this car now for 38 years, and it has drawn blood several times, I’ll probably never sell it, although there were many times in the past I was about to give it away.
