Around 2003, my brother Dan bought a 1968 Ford Mustang convertible for $6,000. He drove it for a while and then, after some mechanical problems, it sat on ramps. In January 2007, Dan started travel nursing and since he didn't have a place for his Mustang, I graciously offered to get it running and to house it. With Dan's money and REMS Automotive (Willow Grove, PA) expertise, the car is running pretty well. Of course, it needs a lot of work and this blog is intended to chronicle the journey toward restoring it. Our intention is not to do a frame up restoration or keep everything factory original. Our intention is to give it the look and feel that it had rolling off the assembly line.
As with all Mustangs of the era, it has some rust and some parts are missing; there are repairs that were good and others not so good. We'll include as many pictures as possible and give you as much insight into the process as possible.
Hope you enjoy the journey as much as we will!
