The '67 Mustang seen on these pages is owned by William Martinez. He's been a reader of MM&F for years, and contributes his success in restoring this coupe to his father.

"Since I was 12, my dad really took his time to teach me to appreciate this hobby," says William. "We owned a '69 fastback that we issued as a racer back in Columbia. He gave it to me, and I had to sell it in order to go to college."

William moved to the United States in 2000, and began his search for the right classic Mustang project that he could restore. Then, while searching the Web, he found the '67 coupe that you see on this page.

"It took me about four years to complete it," says William. And he was also hoping that it would be nice enough for us to share in our magazine. Well, William, here it is! And a special thanks to William's princesses Daniela and Natalia for all of their hard work as well!
