Enthusiast owners are shown how to turn a Mustang in need of restoration into a brilliant automotive jewel.

It provides all the relevant challenges, expenses, drawbacks, and benefits a restorer will encounter, so the owner/restorer can decide whether to do the restoration work on their own or have it professionally done. The latest techniques and best restoration products for each system are revealed and discussed. It also provides the considerations for using replacement parts versus repairing the original parts.

This book takes restoration instruction to a whole new level by providing comprehensive and insightful step-by-step instruction for many of the most important procedures of a restoration. With clear insightful color photography to accompany this how-to instruction, any at-home mechanic can confidently restore a car and save a bundle of money in the process.
