1967 Ford Mustang Body Restoration Photo Gallery at V8 Speed and Resto Shop

This 1967 Ford Mustang lived a full life, and eventually it was torn down for a restoration to repair rust and damage to the body.   Unfortunaltely, the shop doing the work couldn't complete the task, so the car came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for completion.    Our technicians inspected the car and after chatting with the owner, it was decided that much of the metalwork on the '67 could have been of a higher level of quality, so our team is working to bring the car to a higher level, as it's been in the owner's family since 1973!
