ok the cleveland part of the vin is 32 and windsor dont exist according to a plate decoding site. on the H, should be a 351 2v. are you trying to restore it inside and out bumper to bumper?

well i stand corrected. on the windsor part.

Popular options include the Mach 1 package which was only available as a fastback. The Mach 1 includes premium interior with highback bucket seats, full instrumentation including tach and clock, teakwood trim and Mach 1 identification. The 351 Windsor is the base mill, and anything from the 351 four barrel up to the 428 SCJ is optional. - courtesy of second chance garage

bad idea. for one, if it dont match up right with your tranny n such, like the specs n what not youll have more issues. you can upgrade but itll cost ya a pretty penny. it be like putting a pinto motor in say a chrysler it just wouldnt go. you can put certain engines in certain cars just like batteries for a kids toy. and may i suggest using virginia classic mustang if your doing a show quality resto.  its what im using for mine

oh well then you should be fine. but if ya wanna put stock factory equip in, make sure the intake manifold says fomoco on it. w/ a autolite carb. to my knowledge, when you go before a judge for the car (if your making it show quality) they dont look at the block. you putting new paint on? or leaving it as is?

oh. well, if i were you, look real close for cracks bubbles and chips in the paint. im dealing with that issue on my 66. sadly. if there is bubbles n such theyre signs of rust setting in and id eliminate it asap. especially being in a gulf state (tx, al, fl, ga, mi)

Film?  I haven't seen a roll of film in quite some time.  Digital is the way to go.

Here is what you say to your dad.  Hey Dad, can I borrow the digital camera to take a few pics of my Mustang so I can show the guys on the Mustang site what she looks like?   ;D
