Nice Mustang!  I would leave it alone and enjoy it as-is.  As the old saying goes it's only original/unrestored once.

Yep, very nice looking car.! I would leave it as it is. Just clean it up and keep it stock.

The rust is water not salt and as we know and Mueller cleared the drains or it would be much worse.

  Use a long thin air hose pipe to reach down to the bottoms of the doors and quarters and pulverize the plant matter and debris that is clogging the drains.  Then on the next hot summer day use a long thin water hose to flush out the material while a second person is making sure the drains are running clear.

Glad to see you got the car home, Craig. Also very cool that the owner's card was still with it as I didn't see that when I looked through the other paper work.
