G'day All

Some of the members here will know that my best mate and i have been restoring / rebuilding a '66 vert over the last 2 years...

I was covering the build on the other site...but here is the continuing story here Smile

Essentially, 2 years ago - we purchased a rolling shell...66 A Code convertible..

Since then, we've literally modified or replaced every piece of metal on her Smile

Including:

New floors (both sides)
New trunk pans (both sides)
2 New x rear quarters
2 x New fenders
New nose (headlight buckets / front apron)
RHD conversion (Mustang West)
New suspension
New diff
New disc brakes
New drums
New 289 30" bored V8 + rebuilt C4
New pony interior
New canvass roof
New hydraulics
...most other parts (95%) are all new aswell....

Actually the only original piece retained was the VIN Smile

In other words we've rebuilt a 66 with entirely new parts.... this is not cheap...but we want her to live on for another 44 years!

She goes into paint tonight for her outter areas - interior & underside will be during the week.....but here are a few pics taken today.










We're hoping to debut her at the Mustang Round Up in March

Rock on
JC & Siv

Foresight... its very exciting..but once painted thats only half of it Smile

as least she looks like a car nowadays.....

Probably a little over capitalised...but again we want it to last...no point doing a half a$$ed job covering up evils with bog etc... we could have kept some stuff as is like trunk pans, wheel wells, fenders, quarters.... but too many sins hid beneath....

She'll turn a few heads Smile
