The Ford Mustang is possibly the most iconic car of the American auto industry’s heyday. It embodies the raw power of muscle cars and the quality and efficiency of great American engineering. The models built from 1965 through 1968 are perhaps the most renowned, having been used in countless Hollywood movies such as Lock Up, The Fast and the Furious 3: Tokyo Drift, Fastlane, and Bullitt. Off the big screen, this car holds a special place in many people’s hearts, which is why here at JD’s Auto Repair, we’re dedicated to restoring Ford Mustangs from 1965-1968 to their former glory!
Why is the Mustang one of the greats?
The Mustang changed the way Americans saw cars. Prior to its release, there were few cars that could truly call themselves “muscle cars”, let alone perform like one. The 1965 Mustang, which improved upon the already popular 1964 model, sold nearly 560,000 units—in comparison, the 2018 Ford Mustang sold just over 113,000 units worldwide. As it would be another two years until the Camaro arrived on the scene and another three after that before the Challenger joined the party, the Mustang had a competitive edge on its future rivals from the outset. For many people, this car defined the greatest years of the 1960s.
Types of restorations we offer here at JD’s Auto Repair
We offer restorations for all jobs—whether it be a full or partial restoration. If you regularly drive your Mustang, then you may need more work done to the internal components. This would possibly include changing the suspension, cleaning or changing the engine, reinforcing the chassis, and changing the brake pads. All of these jobs are intended to ensure your drive is as safe and smooth as possible when you collect your car from us.
If you use your car as a show car or bring it out for special occasions such as a nice Sunday drive, it’s likely that most of the restoration work that will need to be done will be aesthetic. This includes work to the body such as buffing out any dents, giving the vehicle a new paint job, mending any cracks, and touching up any rust on the chrome components of the car. This partial restoration is perfect if you want to show off your pride and joy to other car enthusiasts.
Whether your Mustang needs a full or partial restoration, make sure you leave it in the hands of someone who will give it the love and attention it deserves. Here at JD’s Auto Repair, all of our expert mechanics are car lovers—and they’d certainly like to get their hands on one of these iconic cars.
