This is my second project which also led to my third project which I have not posted yet. This '70 Torino GT came with a '73 Mach I as a package deal. That worked out because I wanted the Torino and my wife likes the Mach I.
It looks in good shape in the photo, but the previous owner, who bought it new in July 1970, painted it himself sometime back. There are a lot of runs you can’t see and some questionable body work. I had hoped to sand it and repaint it without going back to bare metal, but if his prep work was not good or proper, I don’t want my repaint to fail due to his previous repaint. Thoughts?
So far all the work I have done on this one has been on the interior and some on the motor, and I am not done yet. Also some exterior around the rear window. After a snow that left 7 inches of powder on the car melted, I had a pond inside the car. So, gutted the interior and started going after all the places that were letting water in; mainly the cowl and rear window. However once the carpet was out and the condition of the floor pans was revealed, that job had to be tackled. I will post more pics on this one later.
