Last time we checked in with Dee on is 1967 Raven Black Fastback he had the body kit fitted and was preparing the car for paint. That was almost one year ago. Now the car is almost completed and what a change one year and a lot of hard work makes.
Dee has been working extremely hard to have the car finished in record time and you can see from the pictures below how much that hard work has paid off. It looks great. The paint scheme is looking great and can imagine how much of a head turner this car is going to be. Take a look at the photos from our first post here and see the transformation.
Thanks to Dee for sharing his passion with us.
Don’t forget, if you have a project you wish to share with us. Please email 67mustangblog (at) gmail.com
