    What's up guys.

    Picked up a long term project this past weekend.
    1967 Coupe - 200ci I6 - Cruise-O-Matic - 69000 miles

    Car has been sitting for quite some time, but does run.
    Frame is solid aside from the driver's side floor pan needing patched.
    Body will need lots of work - probably leaving this to the professionals.

    All parts are supposedly original.
    If the car is original, I will restore it that way and try to sell or trade the car, because I HATE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS.
    If the car turns out not to be original as stated - I will replace the drivetrain with V8 and manual tranny.

    Love these cars, I need to get back to work on mine. In terms of originality, there are so many of these that even if it is all original, I'd go ahead and build it the way you want. A I6 auto coupe will never be worth that much, even fully restored, so if you're going to spend the money, might as well build what you want. My car had a 302 and a toploader in it when I bought it, pulled apart right now. I'm planning to put a newer roller motor and a Vortech in it with a T5 out of my 95. Should be a fun little car when I'm done.

    classic cars are fun to fix up, but a headache as well.

    No reason to keep a 67 coupe I6 auto original, unless that's exactly what you want. I'd build it like you want and enjoy it.

    Thanks for all the replies and info guys.
    Really haven't done any research on the basics of these original mustangs, so I appreciate the input.

    I may just get it safe to run and drive, then sell it for a small profit.
    So many decisions!!
