What's up y'all. I'm new to the site and new to fox bodies.

I got an 86 GT Convertible that was used as a prop in a concert about a year ago. My plan is to restore it and get it back to running strong. Ultimately, the final step will be removing the artwork with a fresh paint job.

I named the car Destiny because it was pretty much a random coincidence that led me to getting it for free. Super stoked to work on it and eventually take it down Lakeshore Drive in Chicago.

Here to learn, ask questions and share progress.

It doesn't look like it, thankfully......

Thanks! Happy to be here.

Haha. Good eye.
I definitely lucked out on the interior. It seems to be in pretty good shape.
It mostly needs a good cleaning and possibly a few replacement parts, but it's mostly intact.

Wow.

Welcome. I'd love to hear more about the history of this car. In which concert was this used? Would it potentially have more of a story if you were to keep it as it is on the outside?

Like the parking lot proof, no waxing, paint job...but it needs some green right there>...
'Despray' :rlaugh: the Freebie Convertible. Looking forward to updates and you might need a matching guitar.
Welcome on!
