A 1965 Mustang Named Maxine Being Restored at Wilson Auto, Part One

A 1965 convertible Mustang nicknamed Maxine has come to us for a full restoration.  This pony has seen better days and we are going to restore her.  We certainly have our work cut out for us!  No pun intended, this Mustang has a lot of rust, so we will certainly be cutting out a lot of the corrosion and replacing it with fresh metal.

Here are some shots of her the day she arrived at the shop.

It might be tough to see at first glance, but a close look and you can see that this Mustang is a real rust bucket.

First things first, we are setting the body on the frame table and then welding the body to the frame table to hold it firmly in position.  This way we can remove the floors and rockers and install various frame rails.

Next, we begin to remove and replace the cowl and cowl bucket. Then we welded the vents to give the cowl a smooth look.

Here is a sneak peek at the engine and engine compartment.

That’s it for now but stay tuned.  We will have part two of the Maxine Mustang restoration in just a few days with tons of more images of the restoration progress.
