STAN is the stang my son and hubby rescued a few weeks ago.
In case you didn't know or need reminded STAN named himself by losing the MU and G on the deck lid.

It is the lowliest of lowly Mustangs.
67 I6 coupe with rust in every panel. But something about little ol' STAN called out to my guys and made them think he was worth saving.
Since hauling STAN home, they got the engine running. It purrrrrs.
But then they promptly pulled the engine.
Mike Jr.'s job is detailing the engine and engine bay. He's entirely stripped it so far.
Mike Sr.'s job has been replacing the cancerous metal. He's cut out both side full floor pans and welded in the driver's side. But the surprise, which probably shouldn't have been was the rotten torque box, which he has already also replaced. The passenger side floor pan is ready to go in in the next day or two. The tops of both sides of the fender aprons had holes in them where it is typical in 67/68's. The rot was cut out and four new patches welded in. Looks like it never happened. Also a new battery tray is ready to be welded in place.

Mike Jr. will begin detailing the engine this weekend.

The new rear quarters for both sides were delivered a few days ago. After finishing up the passenger side floor it'll be time for the quarters.

So our little STANley is steaming along.

Reminds me of my convertible. I probably should part it out, but I can't do it. I feel like it's my duty to bring it back to life.
