I recall one of the lessons that my dad taught me when we were rebuilding a ’66 Mustang, and that is that it doesn’t matter how much power you are able to get out of the motor if you can’t transfer that power to something with a strong foundation.

We started in by pulling the motor and transmission to give us a little more room to clean and inspect the frame and running gear.
Lucky for us the previous owner had gone through and wire wheeled the frame, sprayed a rust preventative and painted it up nicely, saving us a great deal of time. After a bit of cleaning, we are ready to get work…
