This book chronicles the reconstruction of a 1967 Mustang Coupe. The Coupe started as a plain, low value coupe. Time, gravity, weather, and use eventually caught up with the Coupe and it needed a serious make-over. The Coupe was converted from its existing 289 cubic inch, carbureted motor to a 5.0 fuel injected engine. At the same time, it was converted from an automatic to manual transmission (T-5) with overdrive. The reconstruction took 7 years (working on a part-time basis). Information is provided for reference only.

Revive Your Ride differs from most of the other auto restoration books on the market in two important ways: (1) it covers general body and paint repair techniques but skips the mechanics (about 70% of restoration is body and paint and only 30% mechanical); and (2) it describes general techniques that can be applied to any vehicle, whereas most books cover only a specific make and model.
