From the rear wing, it looks like a Laguna Seca version, so bonus! The front bumper beam looks bent in the pic, so consider the Ford Racing tubular replacement, M-17757-MB. Depending on how far back the structural damage is, you may want to look at an aftermarket front subframe / K-member, some of which support conversion to double wishbone front suspension. Good luck with the repairs and hope you can get it on the track easily.
Sidenote - have you been keeping up with the Prada / America's Cup sailing? The Kiwi boat was good in the pre-Christmas races, but Team UK has had a complete turnaround in the round robin matches these past weeks (or they were sandbagging mightily) and looks like they'll be mounting a tough challenge for the cup against NZ.
I’m interested in reading about your planned repair process once she arrives home and you get her torn down. Looking at the relocated position of the L/F wheel/tire, you’ll have pull the unibody frame rail(s) to square up the front end, but after that will you be doing any of the repairs?
This will be an interesting build thread once it begins.
All the best & good luck.
Oh Boy,,, that's a familiar site. Had the pleasure of doing the same type of crash to my Boss 302. All ended up fine in the end. Got all my parts from Tasca and had them ship to my re-shipper in Miami to send by ship to Chile. More or less what your planning to do from CA. Try to get as much as you can in one shipment as it turns out cheaper that way.
Found this parts diagram useful.
Best of luck!!
This sounds like it's going to be fun!He said street manners. Boy are you in for something else. Enjoy the rebuild and have fun.
Yes same color, aiming to have it original looking except for wheels and suspension.Sound like fun. Good luck on the build.
are you going to repaint in the same color or do something else?
Thanks for your help on that Bill, much appreciated.I checked for Kiwi TrackRat and his Mustang is definitely an LS, so he will have all the numbers and other info to share with us when it gets there.
