Redditor glang25 loved 1960’s muscle cars and dreamed of having one of his own. He saved up his money and one he found 1969 Mustang that needed some serious TLC. He didn’t know much about restoration before he started but learned a lot along the way. This Mustang restoration is officially impressive!
And worked on rebuilding the hubs, bearings and spindles.
He says one of the great things about classic cars like his is that most of the most can be done with a set of wrenches and a screwdriver. There were a few specialty tools like a timing gun and brake line bending tool he needed to use, but he was able to rent those from Autozone for free.
He’s super happy with it, but doesn’t love the rims, which he plans to replace later.
Grant says the whole project cost him about $9,000, and took countless hours. Many nights he would stay up until 3 or 4 am to work on the car. It had never restored a car before, so in addition to doing a lot of the work, he had to learn about how to do the work first. He spent a lot of time researching and troubleshooting on the internet, on sites and in forums. There were several tricky tasks that were hard to figure out how to do. Grant, this project is awesome. Well done!
