1965 Mustang Convertible (The Snake); 289cu. in.; 4 speed manual floor shift

 

1" sq. tubing bracing the car so the floor, inner, outer rockers, and rear qtr panels can be removed and replaced.

Bracing in the trunk area to prevent the rear from sagging as well as shifting side to side.

The door and windshield bracing is designed to be re-used for future 64.5-66 Mustangs.

Bracing is positioned so that the car can be steered and the trunk lid can close to align rear Qtrs.

Driver's side rear qtr and outer wheel house removed. Note the custom tail light housing.

Begin the cleanup.

In the original plan, I wanted to keep the outer rocker, but the deeper I went, it became more prevelant to replace

not just the floor and inner rocker, but the torque box and outer rocker as well.

Removal of rusted parts of the floor and support structure.

Fiting the new inner, outer rocker, and torque box.
