1965 Ford Mustang Description

This Mustang needs complete restoration, but is a great start, on a car with a very solid frame, that has been off the road in dry storage almost 25 years. It ran 14 years ago, when I moved it to this barn, but I have not tried to start it since. I assume it is stuck from sitting, but I might get a chance to trow a battery in and try it. IF it is stuck from sitting, it would probably just need oil put in the cylinders. My plan was to fix it, but plans have changed. I THINK I have the title for it, but not sure, it hasn't showed up yet. it needs floors, one rear frame rail, the other one is fine. The last picture, that is dark and hard to make out, is the front left frame rail taken from the front fender well (the flash on my camera doesn't work) The engine compartment is in very good shape. A few small holes in the inner rail, on the engine side of the bumper bracket, and should have the frame extension under the driver's side floor replaced. All the frame on both sides is nice, where the steering mounts. The whole passenger's side frame is in VERY good shape. Even the battery apron is nice. If I were doing this, I would do both rear quarts, and both front fender (front fenders are cheap, so it doesn't make any sense to fix these, to me) even though they could be fixed. I have the seats, but can't find the exact driver's seat that came out of that, so it will come with a re-coverable one. The plate on it, and the car cover, don't come with it. I'm ok with it staying here for 30 days, as long as it's paid for. I can help a shipper load it.
