|1969 Mustang Special Project
Project Goal How did we
find the car?
Build a car for
the 2002 Hot Rod Power Tour.
We looked at
several resources including newpapers, auto sales magazines, and
the internet. This project would be a complete teardown and rebuild with aftermarket
parts which means that the main concern was coming up with a straight
body and a sound unibody having no prior wreck damage. Finding a convertible 1969 Mustang with these qualifications is
harder than it sounds.
We suspect that there are thousands of Mustangs
in this condition across the US but people do not advertise them
at this stage because they are planning on fixing them up themselves.
Most cars being advertised are in running condition and therefore
beyond the point we were looking for.
We found and purchased one
in Florida but unfortunately it soon became clear that this car
was too far gone. We found another in Washington DC, this is the
car that you see in these pictures. We needed both to make the one.
The car from DC is the one we used for the body.
we get them and how much did they cost?
one cost $3000 each with parts, they were purchased in 1999
