My name is Chris Martin. I am a Mustang enthusiast. I have owned several Mustangs over the years, but life has always found a way of making me sell my pride and joy for the greater good. I think this one is safe...as I am older and at a better place in life now and I have more automotive experience now than in the past. (I was a Mercedes Benz Master Tech for 6yrs at Mercedes Benz of Nashville until last last year when I changed careers.)
I found this car after it sat under a tree for 19 years. Someone put a vinyl top on it to cover some bad body work on the roof.
By the time I got it the roof had rotted and caved in. The damage extended down into the upper rear 1/4s. The front torqueboxes and full floors still need to be replaced as well as the shock towers and passenger outer rocker.
So far I have replaced the roof, both full rear 1/4s, and both doors. They are only attached with sheetmetal screws for now because I had to quickly assemble the car to move it from Nashville, TN to Ephrata, PA due to a job transfer. I will weld them in place once I am happy with their position. Right now the driver rear 1/4 isn't fitting very well. I believe it to be due to a mis-stamping of the repro 1/4 panel.
I will post updates and pics as I go. Keep checking!
