The ’67 “Mastic” Mustang Convertible

Watch this space for our new addition to our garage!

We have a pretty rare car that we will be posting details about soon, we have documentation, sales invoices and a history that will be sorted out and scanned for the PC so that we can put all the documents and pictures with it. There has been articles about it in the magazines, and we are excited to have something a little different. All I can say is that it’s quite rare, numbered and we are going to get her back to full glory, but it is still drivable at the moment. We even have a little video that we will post on our YouTube channel too.

A good-looking ’67 Convertible in a very BAD way

We have been pretty busy with a lot of cars all of a sudden that need various work from crash damage to MOT’s, we just don’t have enough hours in the day to complete it all.  But somehow we always manage to cope. We have recently been asked to look over a car that has recently been shipped over from the States to a customer of ours. The car was purchased in good faith and the initial pictures were promising as you would expect. We had a thorough look over the ’67 it and found some shocking points that just have to be seen to be believed. When buying any Mustang Convertible there are things to look out for, and this example is everything that you need to avoid. Just because it looks pretty it doesn’t mean that its a good car, the floor pans were welded into the rotten rusted metal, the joins were filled with silicon sealant or “Mastic” as it’s called in the UK. The sills have rotted through and I can put my hand inside a number of holes in those sills. The quarter panels have been filled and the chassis is hollow in some places. It looks like the whole body will have to come of and repair the chassis if we can. As a result what we have seen we have called this car the Mastic Mustang.
