I'm restoring a 1969 Mustang Fastback conversion. The car had a little rust in the floors and that is fixed now.
I have Boss 429 shock towers to put in it. It will be painted red with black interior, Good Year polyglass tires on Magnum 500 rims, It has a 302 3 speed, but will upgrade to Boss 429 with John Kaase heads in the future.
I've had a lot of Mustangs over the years:
1984 Mustang GT 5.0 5 speed I bought in 1992
2005 Mustang V6 auto
2006 Mustang GT 5 speed Shelby hood and bumper conversion
Nice project. I look forward to watching your build.
I once new a guy that put a blown 429 boss with Kasse heads in his 69. It Looked cool.
He didn't like the car though. He could not drive it on the street. He could not keep the tires from spinning even in second gear.
I also thought about going that rout. BUT. A Boss 351 block built with a 427 stroker kit would have less weight and enough HP for any street car.
It is your car do what you want. Just keep posting pic's. LOL.
