rmousir's {Richard} '66 Mustang coupe

1966 mustang with ###### miles on the dash.  I am sure it has gone over at least once.
Originally Gold with Black interior, 289 2v with a 3sp standard transmission. I was going to pick up the car on March 5, 2004 but my wife went into labor with my daughter.
I tried to convince her to let me go get it anyway but my wife wouldn’t go for that.
So I picked up the car a week later. I drove it about 3 hours home with no
heat and shot suspension during a freezing rain storm all the way home.
I was cold but it was fun. I got the entire car for $4,500.00.

I have constructed a plan and have been slowing working at it a little at a time.
There is still lots to do but it is coming along nicely thanks to the folks on Mustangsandmore.com.
