Hey guys and gals my name is Bobby , I just became a owner of a standard 69 convertible . Plans are for a driver not a total restore . It's a 351 W 4v - FMX , 9 in 3.00 open . This is not my first one I have a 67 Mustang Cpe prepping for paint and a couple 30's model's waiting .

This was started on about 30 years ago and done very poorly , out side rockers are clean but when I looked well under neath the cross structure is fine . Floors are bad as the inner rockers are gone . Car runs ok so far , didn't run it long , will go thru engine any way .

But glad to find a good forum have read some of the other restores and hope to get well acquainted with this model and make it a safe and dependable ride .

a pic of it at home first day this past Sunday

Welcome Bobby! With your new acquisition and what it needs, please feel free to check out my ECI thread. Just under seven years of blood sweat and tears that yielded my dream. I'm also here to help if you need it.

Regards,

Bob
