These are part of the end product...I installed an oem AC unit on the car but did not want to cut my console....I built my own manifold, mounted the air exchange unit under the package tray and (hand) fabbed up aluminum AC vents through the package tray......i wanted them to look old school- as if they came out of a Lincoln, etc.


and my cable actuated hood lock....



and while there are no pics....i fabbed up a mounting bracket to install 2- 3"x3" speakers in where the oem radio speaker location.......just a few of my thoughts.....

I crammed a 331 EFI stroker into the 65:



Kinda hard to see but I made a custom aluminum radio delete plate/switch panel. It houses switches for the driving lights, electric fan override, and the hazard lights:

I'm trying to keep up with Scott. Once I get the car done, it will have the following mods:

MII coilover front end
5.0 EFI conversion (built to about 350 HP) backed by a T56 6-speed
Complete 1986 Mustang wiring harness adapted to the '66
Power locks with keyless entry
Cruise control (factory setup from '80s Mustang)
Vintage Air heat & A/C
Quarter panels blended to the rockers, rear valance, and transition piece between the rear window and trunk
TMI Sport Seats
Custom built steel plate surrounding the top of the gas tank (which, by the way, was swapped out to a larger 22 gallon 1970 Mustang tank)
Higher output headlights powered by a relay system that I built
GT rear valance so that the tailpipes exit through the valance

Buy the 70 gas tank and sending unit. Cut about 1.5-2" off the filler neck and hook it up. I just did the same for my 67 Fastback.

check out this link but there are many on this site about this mod.
