1964 1/2 Ford Mustang Interior Restoration

I’ve been restoring Ford Mustangs for over 17 years now, and one of  my favorites is restoring or converting to two- tone interiors. I like how it breaks up the patterns and complimants the interior lines. This particular restoration was unique. A few years ago, the owner had his engine rebuilt by JBA Performance Center, and he brought it back to them to have the interior restored back to life.  It was a 1964 1/2 Mustang with a D code engine. This was an early production 289 engine with a generator. The owner thought that the Pony interior and the Emberglo exterior were original. I showed him that the Pony option did not come until late 1965, and the Emberglo exterior color was not an option until the 1966 model year. Also, the past owner installed GT Ralley wheels, GT fog lights, and all the GT badges. None of these were correct for a 1964 1/2 Mustang.  That being said, he liked the combination. Since we were going to keep the Emberglo Pony interior, he wanted it to be restored like a correct 1966 interior would have been.  One of the challenges was finding the correct Emberglo colors. The first batch of paint was to orange, so I had to go through a few batches of paint until it was right. There is evidents of that in the pictures that I took throughout the restoration.
