My Dads Mustang

My dad was given his first car back in 1971. He restored in over the course of 6 years and the picture on top is him the day it was finished. In the 80's and 90's the condition of the car rotted away and it was eventually put on blocks. throughout my entire childhood my dad told me how he wanted to one day bring it back to its original glory and to see it shine again. 2 Years ago I got my first major job and I bought it from him.

My dad was given his first car back in 1971. He restored in over the course of 6 years and the picture on top is him the day it was finished. In the 80's and 90's the condition of the car rotted away and it was eventually put on blocks. throughout my entire childhood my dad told me how he wanted to one day bring it back to its original glory and to see it shine again. 2 Years ago I got my first major job and I bought it from him. It took us both 2 years total to put it together. the bottom picture is of the same car 36 years later and me sitting in the drivers seat.... We are both 23 in the photos. I'm going to keep my dads first car forever and hopefully pass it onto my kids.

That love.

It's a great car with a great story. I wish you all the best.

If you're an anon, you see "We are both 23 in the photos. I'm going to keep my dads first car forever and hopefully **** it onto my kids."

I presume it says pa­ss, read it as "hopefully fu­ck it onto my kids".

..Good job ad­min..

Now swap the motor from the 2013 Shelby Cobra

My grandfather had a 67 GT 3 speed, and just bought a 2013 with the same color, except with 250 more horsepower and three more gears.

My first car the day I got her. She's had to get a fair bit of work done, but holy hell is she fun to drive.

This Camaro has all my yes and want. I hope you don't mind me asking what motor it has?

Hey Keithazoid, stock engine?
User avatar #44 to #31 - Keithazoid (09/28/2013) [-]
Yup... dead stock 289
User avatar #49 to #44 - benderisgreat (09/28/2013) [-]
Really I thought it was a 302
User avatar #52 to #49 - Keithazoid (09/28/2013) [-]
naw the 302 was inside the high performance models such as the Boss 302
User avatar #29 - Loppytaffy (09/28/2013) [-]
Because it is a Mustang, I'm afraid I must ask;
how much horsepower does it have?
User avatar #34 to #29 - benderisgreat (09/28/2013) [-]
Back in the day it had 134 hp but they lose a few when they sit for a while.
User avatar #53 to #34 - Loppytaffy (09/29/2013) [-]
you didn't get the joke...

great car, still would rather have a 70' camaro or a 69' mustang

I've got a '63 Ford Galaxie I'm building myself. It was pretty ugly when I got it a year ago, but it's getting better slowly. Just got it back from the shop yesterday after getting some pretty major frame repair, hopefully I'll have it registered within a month

Dude, it's ****** beautiful.

I love seeing restorations, and espcially fellow FJ'rs that are into cars. My dad and I are working on our 1972 VW van during times when I'm home from school. It will some day look like this again, but it will probably take a while.

My first car. (not that exact one)
Come at me bro
#19 to #12 - jlew (09/27/2013) [-]
That was technically my first car too.
But it needed $2000 in repairs so we traded it to a mechanic to help pay for repairs on my truck. The truck doesn't have brakes. MFW

i wish my first car was a gt500
User avatar #16 to #11 - Jewssassin (09/27/2013) [-]
We all do. Too bad OPs dads first car was a GT350 and not a GT500.
User avatar #20 to #16 - Keithazoid (09/27/2013) [-]
Naw man he made it to look like a GT350. So what we did is we brought it back to stock GT coupe specs.I did end up getting a real Gt350 a few years ago though when the marked was down.
User avatar #30 to #20 - Jewssassin (09/28/2013) [-]
What did it have in it when it started its life?
User avatar #10 - vanillyguy ONLINE (09/27/2013) [-]
As an European, it's quite rare to see a muscle car and in good condition. My dream is to drive Mustang Mach II, that'd be great.
#13 to #10 - verycoolcat (09/27/2013) [-]
I find that strangely common.

Germans and Japanese too.

When I lived in los angeles, a lot of people I met who had moved from germany or japan wanted classic american cars.

My dad just restored our 1968 Impala. We've only had it for a few years, but it's still a bitchin' car.
#27 to #25 - Loppytaffy (09/28/2013) [-]
Have you ever noticed how he parks like an ******* ?
User avatar #8 to #7 - Keithazoid (09/27/2013) [-]
Damn thats gorgeous. .. I've always loved the lines on the 60's model impala's
User avatar #9 to #8 - PedoBearFTW (09/27/2013) [-]
Same here! You have a very beautiful car as well!

Mustangs are the beginner pony car... Camaro master race!

'69 Camaro looks bitchin'
User avatar #6 to #5 - Keithazoid (09/27/2013) [-]
Haha yeah Camaro's are awesome too. We used to have a red with black stripe 1969 Z28 a while ago and loved it. Its sitting next to the mustang in comment #1
User avatar #2 - lukewarmpigeon (09/27/2013) [-]
you are aware you ruined that car right? provided the car in the first image is correct, you changed the nose, removed the spoiler, and got rid of the albeit pointless side scoops. god only knows what else you changed. any and probably every shelby fan who sees this is hoping you die. you did a good job restoring fixing it, but its still ruined

dude being someone that actually owns a real Shelby (the one in this picture) I can assure you that my dads first car wasn't a real Shelby. it was originally a Silver Frost GT car that my dad heavily modified. What we did was bring it back to its original condition. Please do a bit more research before telling me I ruined my car.
User avatar #39 to #3 - SuperSixONE (09/28/2013) [-]
That explains it. I was about to say, "Way to repaint a GT 350 from its famous paint scheme."

Damn bro. 23 and you have two bad ass stangs. What do you do?

Just saved up every penny and waited until the market got horrible a few years ago. I work in Utilities for the City
User avatar #4 to #3 - lukewarmpigeon (09/27/2013) [-]
firstly i said if the car in the first image was correct meaning if that is not how it was when it was first purchased then the rest of my comment would not be applicable and should be dismissed, but i was trusting the image so i continued the comment. and second, how in the **** am i supposed to research a blurry image of a scanned photo of a car that has no visible identifiers like a license plate or vin code?
User avatar #37 to #4 - killerliquid ONLINE (09/28/2013) [-]
I'd rather have a fixed car than a rotted one
User avatar #40 to #37 - lukewarmpigeon (09/28/2013) [-]
i'd rather have the shelby it was portrayed to be than the mustang it is now
User avatar #42 to #40 - killerliquid ONLINE (09/28/2013) [-]
Well duh, but who just has a new 60's Shelby right in their garage?
User avatar #43 to #42 - lukewarmpigeon (09/28/2013) [-]
no, i mean before he restored it. if it really was a shelby all beat to **** , i'd rather have that than the finished not shelby
User avatar #45 to #43 - killerliquid ONLINE (09/28/2013) [-]
So you'd rather have a car that's on the blocks than a working car?
User avatar #47 to #45 - lukewarmpigeon (09/28/2013) [-]
lets try this another way, i would rather have a shelby in poor but repairable condition, over a mustang of the same year in perfect conditioon
User avatar #48 to #47 - killerliquid ONLINE (09/28/2013) [-]
Oh, I see what you're getting at. Now I feel dumb.
