1964 1/2 Mustang Project by Brett and Harry.....

Where to start?

We got this 64 1/2 Mustang by chance from a customer wanting to clear out his yard. It had a opossum family in the trunk, but it started right up....

It's full of rust...and needs major work.

My Mom was ready to help Harry restore it for my sister for a graduation present. Every time she had extra money, it went into a jar. the Mustang Jar.

Then my Mom had a bigger project to do. Fight Breast Cancer. So the car was forgotten about while she took off work to fight for her life.

Now, 3 years later, my Mom is a survivor. My sister graduated and went on to college and I am in need of a car. I am a Jr. in high school and want to try to finish this project for my Sr. year.

My Friend Harry is a certified Mechanic. He is 55 and teaching me mechanics. I go to work with him almost everyday just to learn. He can't pay me but what I learn from him is better than money.
I know I can do this...If I was rich.

My mom borrowed a trailer and we drove 6 hours to pick up the car yesterday. That was a crazy.
Now I see how much work we have. I am so ready...
