'66 Mustang Coupe to Fastback Conversion

We started with an A code '66 Mustang Fastback that the customer purchased off of Ebay that was beyond repair. The decision was made to purchase a solid coupe and do a conversion. So he purchased a '66 Mustang Coupe that he thought was a solid car. Unfortunately as you can see by the pictures it was not as solid as was originaly thought.
