1970 Ford Mustang – Mechanical Restoration

Owner: Doug Harris

Briefly about the project

This 1970 Mustang has been untouched for over 20 years and Doug wanted to bring it back to life. He arranged for it to be towed to our shop and get it inspected. Our team inspected and made a list addressing what needed to be done. After going over the necessary work needed on the vehicle with Doug, he decided to have our shop restore the fuel system, upgrade the suspension and brakes, install new wheels and tire, as well as install rack and pinion steering. He opted for the engine and transmission to remain out of the vehicle as he plans to install new ones in the future. This Mustang is certainly on course for a new life!
