Restore your vintage Mustang without breaking the bank by learning how to stretch your project dollar.
It’s probably safe to assume that everyone reading this magazine would love to have a ’66 K-code GT fastback or perhaps a ’69 Boss 302 in their garage, fully restored and ready for the show field. Truthfully, we’re betting that the majority of our readers have a ’66 C-code hardtop or a ’69 SportsRoof in need of a whole lot of work. That’s OK, really. You’ve already fulfilled part of your dream just by being a vintage Mustang owner. We know it takes a lot of time and money to restore a vintage Mustang (or even modify it). It’s rare when we come across someone who can “do it all” and has the skills to perform mechanical work, paint and body repairs, welding, electrical, suspension, and upholstery. Even those well-versed in Mustang knowledge usually beg off on big projects and certainly paint and body work, so there’s no shame in farming work out. What you have to do is become educated and make smart decisions by doing what you can, where you can to help your project dollars go further.
