Cost of Restoration;$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Back

Total restoration is not always your only option, good results can be obtained by using the''ala carte'' method. This approach is the preferred choice for ''daily drivers'' and requires very little down time without the significant investment required for a total restoration . Pick an area in need of attention and service or renew this particular area as a sub-assembly (not a u-boat) in the restoration process. The major hitch with this method is avoiding ''redundant labor.''

The ''Bucks Up'' Method

How much you spend on restoration is directly proportional to the thickness of your wallet, here's the formula.

Parts and supplies for typical early coupe, from Shasta Mustang Supply approx. $4500. to $8500.

Shasta Mustang's labor cost usually come out to about $7,500 for the average '65 or '66 well worn but mostly complete coupe. (not one snatched from the gates of Ponycar Purgatory). At my reasonable current labor rate of $45.00 per hour this represents about four weeks worth of labor !! Such a bargain, actual work time is more than double that figure. QUALITY AT A PRICE YOU CAN A-FORD.

By using this as a rough estimate as cars and customers needs vary, my approx. price for the 65-66 coupe rebuild would be around $12,500 to $18000.+ subletted extras .

All this can be accommodated, it's just more money!
