is the shell of the earlier car 66 mustang for sale, i dont mind picking it up. the owner of this 71 mach 1 wants to ruin an already ruined car further why dont you talk to him to restore the car atleast. i dont mind doing it for him.

Isnt it easy to get parts for Mustangs from the US once you have the basic chassis. Or is it a lot harder than that ?

its shocking to see the same car in the present condition
HOW DID THIS HAPPEND??

HOW can a car get in such a bad shape with an owner like landspeed

he said he had another mustang is that one in good shape?

it is not at all difficult to get parts i just need the body thats all. from the engine to the trims everything is available. i import most of my parts for all my cars. i am also importing an engine for my rolls.
in the family i have two mustangs already but more are welcome. i love the car so i would never mind more being added. the only time i would stop is when we get a convertible.

you did mention the link of landspeed but i have never seen his cars on the road there was one 71 mustang mach1 being done up by the guy of motorsport store on carter rd. maybe it is one of his cars

Might I make a slight adjustment in the last sentence-.......old Ambys are built of sterner stuff!
The same unfortunately wouldnt hold good in case of the newer ones.....all you have to do is punch the doors/panels with your fist & you'll know what those are built of! :P

. that hold true for most of the newer models too. the older cars were built to last body wise as compared to the newer ones.
give this amby a few months more and it would start to cave in.
stampro does this car have any thing on the inside as in meters and other things that can be used. it would come handy to someone looking for parts.

Not the originals. meters are hanging in on a single panel to the left of the steering.
