GT Build Project Complete!
On November 29th, 2012 Scott saw his 1967 390 GT Convertible Mustang fully restored for the first time. He was elated with the work that Jerry Choate, long time restorer and Drake Automotive Group Technical Sales Rep had done for him. Scott and several others spent a lot of time gazing at the beautiful paint job Elite Restorations so skillfully knocked out of the park. Their attention to detail really shines in the Ford Wimbledon White paint job.
The fully restored 67 GT was proudly displayed at the 2012 SEMA Show. It received a lot of attention shinning in the Drake Automotive Group Booth. Now it’s time to think about what we will have for next year. Be sure to stay tuned!
We want to give special thanks to the following build participants:
John Trsar with Mustang of Chicago for his expert panel repair skills www.mustangofchicago.com
Patrick with SSBC for providing their Disc Brake Conversion Kit www.ssbrakes.com
Distinctive Industries for providing the upholstery www.distinctiveindustries.com
Danny Frechetes and his team at Elite Restorations for paint and body www.eliteautorestoration.com
Russ Hedlend for helping Jerry with the restoration and engine install www.369bugs.com

The Mustang is currently in Jerry’s garage where he is converting it over to factory power steering. After that is complete, Scott plans to take it back home to northern Nevada and spend the spring and summer taking it to various shows and events.
