1965 Mustang Convertible Restoration Update

The HiPo Mustang Convertible is finally rolling on all four wheels and tires!  We have a few original nuts and bolts to gather up in order to completely finish the suspension, and then the engine and transmission should be ready to go in.

Here's the latest picture update.

There are probably lots of folks that will say, "Hey, that Brake Drum should not have any paint!"  Well, we looked at a bunch of original cars and decided that it should be painted black.  All images ©Virginia Classic Mustang Inc.

A gasket/seal was made for where the backing plate mounts to the spindle.  We found that originally a gasket like this was used. All images ©Virginia Classic Mustang Inc.

No paint markings have been put on the front coil springs, since we have not 100% verified what may have originally been applied here.  All images ©Virginia Classic Mustang Inc.

A gasket was also fabricated to go between the backing plate and the retainer around the spindle.  All images ©Virginia Classic Mustang Inc.

Outer Coil Spring/Shock Tower Cover was installed with the original bolts.  All images ©Virginia Classic Mustang Inc.

Undercoating and sealer for this area has not yet been applied.  That will be done a bit later.  All images ©Virginia Classic Mustang Inc.
