Good morning one and all!

New guy checking in and saying 'hi from England!'

1967 C code coupe, springtime yellow, sport sprint package.









My plans are to sort out the wiring, do the Arning drop and get some torq-thrusts on it.

There a quite a few Mustangs around where I live and they really stand out from the rest of the traffic!

Thanks - it is a good base to work from. Ali heads, tri-Ys, performerII and some other nice stuff.

Would anyone know how unusual it is to have the original bill of sale, build sheet, tin warranty tag and original black CA plates on a car? All this was in a box in the trunk along with loads of other paperwork and it has been fun reading it all

Are you expecting any problems with the MoT? I would suggest adding a T5 5 speed gearbox to your list.

John

Dynacorn 67 fastback. Dart 363, Close ratio Magnum 6 speed, 3.70 Eaton Truetrac in a fabricated full floater 9", SorT coil over suspension. Still in pieces.
'14 SHO with most all the bells and whistles. Stock for now.

It sailed the MoT - good shout on the gearbox!

My "plan" is to get it driving nicely - brakes, suspension and tyres before I tackle any drivetrain and cosmetic upgrades.

That's cool - there is every expired tag and smog check and even a large folded cardboard banner which says 'NEED GAS' on one side and 'SEND HELP' on the other - with a Ford part number!

Welcome here. Looks like a nice car. I assume you don't see a lot of them there. Probably about common as seeing a MGA here. Gearbox would be a good thing if you are going over 90 kph.

Current piles of rust 1965: New yorker***1968: GTO convert, Lemans convert Porche 911***1969: MustangGT convert, Mach1 S code Mach1, Mach1 CobraJet R code GTO convert, Firbird Convert 1970 Boss 302***1972: Charger***1999:f250 CNG truck***2011:nissan Altima ---> I need to get rid of some of this junk lol

Thank you for your kind words - would an AOD or 4R70W be an easier retro-fit than a T5?

I noticed you have a USA car before reading your post about the documentation you got with it. I noticed because it does not have the export brace under the hood. Put a Scott Drake export brace on your list.


Very nice car.
