I'm one of the other two that browse the Mustang II forum. My first car, in Hawaii 22 years ago, was a hot 76 blue with white stripe Cobra II.

Awesome build. Keep at it and keep posting pics.

Sooooo... In the immortal words of Dr. McCoy on STAR TREK - 'He's dead Jim'

What's that mean??? Well, the deeper we got into the stripping of the black fastback the more rust I found in the front framerails. This isn't good. In fact it sucks monkey *****.

So, we've procured another fastback (Pics to be posted soon). On the bright side, I sold the red parts car since I don't need it any longer. The black fastback will become a project for me. Its twisted, completely impractical and will turn eyes everywhere it goes once I finish it.

However, that's another thread on another day. This thread will continue, with the new Mustang II which will get new paint, new spoilers and a redone interior. Plus a 5 lug conversion, sequential and 3rd brakelight mods and whatever tune up stuff it needs.

Next update once it gets a little warmer...

Damn. That's a shame. I always liked those II's.

But on the bright side, your prodigy learned new skills and you spent quality time with her.

You win.

fastbackford351- yeah too bad we couldn't save the first car, but as a Dad I couldn't go on with it. But the new fastback is really solid, and she'll be on the road this summer with her own Mustang II. She'll still be out in the shop helping. here's a pic of the 'new to us' pony. Hey, she gets T-tops now!

Can't wait to see the finished project. Love that you are getting to do this with your daughter.

Glad to see she's back on track with a different II. I was wondering if the Red II I saw on CL a few months back was yours. We're still plugging along here too. Maybe end of year we'll be done with my son's. Are you going to put in a locker or posi unit for her with the winter's around here or is she going to park it? I just got done putting in an aftermarket posi-unit in the '76.
