My name is John. This is me and my baby. This is my first car. I got her when I was 16 and she was my daily driver for a couple years. To make a long story short it got left sitting in my parents' back yard rotting away while I went to school, ironically, to work on cars. The engine seized from rust after sitting with no carburetor. The car was about 6" underground when I pulled it out and moved it to the driveway. Thus begins project Rustang.

Could be worse...could be a Chevy.

 

We have a SoCal owner who got a free 351 with about 8 quarts of water in the oil pan. Watch his video when he checks in.

If you look around here, there are some guys that LITERALLY started with a set of wheels, and built a Mustang around the wheels.

 

Okay, literally is TOO strong, but certainly 80% of the metal in the finished product was not original to the car.

 

These guys would turn your car into showroom condition in a couple of weeks. Of course, they have barns and no life.

I'll definitely keep you guys posted. I'll start a new thread for all that fun stuff. So far all I've done is pull the motor. I also scored a set of D0OE-C 351w heads that need some tlc.

The Cutlass is my dad's. That's actually what I used to drive before I found my Mustang. He has plans for the Cutlass but right now he's driving a 69 Olds' Ninety Eight and he's working on a VW bus.

Ain't that the truth!

 

Welcome from West Texas. I'm one of those guy whose project started out WAY worse than yours - except that I have no barn, and 'somewhat' of a life ;) . You're in good hands here with all the knowledge, experience, and brotherhood offered by everybody here.
