So about a year ago my buddies wife's 98 mustand got stolen and they found it 4 days later with the interior completely stripped. It still runs and everything (V6) but there is just no interior or head and tail lights. They even took the freakin windshield wipers So I get a call from him on friday and he says "dude if you can have it out of here by tomorrow night, it's yours." I guess he has had it parked under a cover for the last year and his wife refuses to even look at it. She has never seen it since it was recovered. It was her baby and she dosen't want to see it trashed.
So I went over with the trailer yesterday and brought it home. Now the process of putting it back together begins.

Start looking for some local racer and Mustang forums. Lotta times guys will strip the interior for race seats, roll cage and what not and you can probably pick up a lot of that interior stuff cheap.

Wow, talk about being in the right place at the right time. Those thieving bastards really did a number on that thing. Good luck with the restoration.

Probably gonna leave the V6, They didn't mess with the engine cause they had to drive it to the place where they ditched it. They really did take everything that wasn't needed to drive it.
