67 Coupe Restomod build

I restored this car with my grandfather when I was 12 years old (29 now) about 5 years after completing the restoration my grandfather passed. The car sat for some time and about 9 years ago I aquired it from my grandmother. While sitting she developed some small leaks and I couldn't bring myself to putting any money into the anemic little 6 cylinder. I've dealt with sliding an oil pan under it in the garage for the time I've had it and over the summer my amazing wife told me to go ahead and do what I want with it this winter. I'll post some pics of where it was when I started and post my progress as I'm going. Hoping by spring time everything is done.

Work to be done is:
306 with frpp Gt40x aluminum heads, e303 cam, Quick Fuel 650ss carb, Edelbrock rpm air gap intake, MSD Pro Billet with 6al box, frpp high performance roller lifters and push rods, scorpion 1.6 roller rockers, canton racing t sump pan
3 core aluminum radiator with electric fan
Serpentine setup with 3G alternator
Ford powertrain applications (FPA) long tube step headers with Flowmaster American thunder 2.5" exhaust with super 44's and electric cutouts.
T5z with spec stage 2 clutch and steeda tri ax shifter
Modern driveline hydraulic clutch setup
Modern driveline t5 crossmember
9 inch rear end with 3.50 trac loc
Viking double adjustable coilovers up front with Viking double adjustable shocks in rear
14" Foresight Drag mags with 235/60 in rear and 215/60 up front
CSRP manual 4 piston K/H style brakes in front and 10x2.5 inch brakes in rear( thanks Jeff 66hertzclone)
Global west subframe connectors

Interior
Switching everything to black
Procar rally seats
TMI 1 piece headliner
New dash and knee pad
New door panels
New gauge cluster from kens classic mustang gauges

That should just about round out what the plan is for now but I haave a while I'm in there mentality so if I see something that needs a freshening up once I start diggin in that will be dealt with. Hoping to be done by the end of March. Can't wait to get started. My daughter which is 5 and my son who will be 3 in February are going to be my helpers on the project which makes it that much sweeter for me.

Well it's been a while since I started this thread so I figure it's time for an update. I removed the original 4 lug rear end from the car with the help of a sawzall due to the front eye bolts being seized to the sleeves.

Theses blades were by far the best blades I have ever used. 1 blade made all 4 cuts in less than 10 minutes.

In my free time on my lunches an breaks I assembled my 9 inch rear end. It is set up with a 3.50 trac lok center section, lubelocker centersection gasket, stock 28 spline axles that I pressed new bearings and studs onto. New axle seals and were installed and then came the 10x2.5" drum brakes (thanks Jeff).

Next came time to start on stripping and prepping the bottom of the car for the global west subframe connectors and paint. I didn't get any good pics of either of these. For the paint I did a base of por15 followed up by 3 coats on satin black VHT roll bar and chassis paint.

After That was all dried and cured I installed my new 3/8 sending unit and 3/8 2 piece line. Having already installed the subframe connectors made this a fun task. I ended up having to clearance the frame with a 3 lb hammer and punch to make a little more room for the fuel line. I also had to make new holes for the clips being that my car originally had the fuel lines down the tunnel.

I had to order new wheels after taking some measurements and realizing that the wheels I was planning on using were a 14x7 with 2.75" back spacing so they weren't going to work for me. I ordered a set of torque thrust 2 wheels 14x6 up front and 14x7 for the rear with the correct back spacing.

Finally tonight I was able to get the rear end under the car and complete the rear suspension setup along with getting the tailpipes in place. I ended up going with the Calvert racing split mono leafs with a 1" drop along with they're caltracs. The stock shackles were pretty pitted so I ordered a set of energy suspension heavy duty shackles.
