1969 Fastback New Restomod

Just finished, complete nut and bolt restoration to new, to my modified 1969 Fastback. You would probably classify this as a restomod. Went for 1969 looks with 2015 comfort, reliability and performance.
All new steel throughout, Frame rails and floor supports were internally stiffened, All new trim inside and out.

TCI IFS front suspension, TCI rear 4 link w/new 31 spline ford 9" axle housing. Power Rack & Pinion steering, Power 4 wheel Wilwood disc brakes, New Tremec TKO600 5 speed, new AL driveshaft, 3.5 posi currie third member, new subframe connectors, all new fuel & brake lines, New American Autowire wiring harness.

Original 315W block stroked to 408, full hyd. roller cam, Aluminum heads, edelbrock intake, new quickfuel carb, Pertronix flamethrower III ignition, Aluminum Radiator with dual electric fans, Chrome serpentine belt system, New vintage air AC, New Calypso Coral Paint, New original interior w/fold down seat. All new Dakota Digital gauges, Finished with Dougs ceramic headers and 3" magnaflow SS exhaust. This has been over 1-1/2 year project with all new steel welded in, No Rust and all new, down to nuts, bolts, and screws.

I hope you like it, I have pics of the build if anyone wants to see them. If you wonder why I didn't just restore it, the Martini report showed this born as a 351W 2bbl, PS, PB, FMX, Pastel Gray with a powder blue interior. It was not anything worth restoring back to original so the only way to make it worth while was to modify it.

Looks like it turned out absolutely beautiful. What color of red did you use ? It looks like you need to drop the front and the rear own another inch.

Calypso coral, an awesome 70 mustang color (orange/red).

Nice car!

I have a pretty similar setup/situation, a orginally a Low option 69 351 H code Mach 1 with a FMX that is now a 408w car with a TKO-600, and a Detroit truetrac with 31 splines rear etc, etc, etc.



At least mine wasn't Pastel Grey though.....

Very nicely done. I am a fan of the factory look to the casual observer.

Sharp 69! Was wondering what heads and pistons you chose. Great looking Mustang!
