The bezel is sort of a custom job. I ordered the stainless bezel and glove box insert together.... I was torn for a while on the gauges. Everyone, with the restomods at least, seemed to be going with the white gauges... and there aint a speck of white on that car... So I found these black ones for a good price.

As I said before, I was close to the end, and might have settled on these. Dont get me wrong, they look good and I get compliments on them, but it will prob be another "change" down the road....staying with the black, just a different gauge.


And yes, the "very nice Cornhole" comment did cause me to adjust my seat. Flattering though.... I guess

For a restomod coupe, Super Nice Job!

Only thing that I would change on that car is that I would probably throw on some of those LED '68 Shelby tailights for 65-66 mustangs. That car is begging for them! The car looks like it really wants to hit the track!

Mustang Project has them for $400.00 - Definately worth the money in my humble opinion.

I would not change anything else on the car.

PS: I hate the white guages also... Always have. They belong on European cars in my opinion.

Thanks fellow Floridian...

The car was bought new by my mother and although I have obviously modded it to hell, I wanted to keep the cars lines as close to stock as I could... no flares, no trunk wing... and yes, I considered the tail lights you are referring to. But for my reasons I decided not to. The racing apron, bumper delete, gt 350 hood, side scoops, painted rear bumper and stripes were enough.

And yes, I made the car for the race course and the street. Once it is dialed in, away we go.

For any of the South Miami residents, looking to take car to Sir Pizza car gathering this Saturday night (Dec 1st) off of Pike and SW 120 St.

Default Side Scoops

The side scoops look great on there. What kind are they and how did you install them? Thanks, great looking car.

Thanks. I believe they are tony brands side scoops. Bought them a long time ago, I will have to check and confirm. They are riveted on and then body filler. They are non functional.. As with all the coupes, they are just for looks. You can't run the ducts without really cutting up the car.

Nice work, clearly a lot of time and effort and cash put into it. I see nothing wrong with restoring a coupe the way you'd like it to although my preference is for updated mechanical with totally classic look.

What's your seatbelt system? Did you stay stock, go three point? I would have though with a roll cage you might go with a racing harness type.

Default Photobucket easier?

Spectacular job on your coupe! You have earned bragging rights in my book, and I'm in the "like 'em original" crowd. The ghost stripes were a great accent. I think it might be easier for you to create a photobucket.com account and post your pictures there. It would also be easier for the rest of us to admire your machine. Again, great looking car!

Any chance of getting a good photo, close up, shot from the front of the scoops? I am getting ready to install and the photos would help a bunch. Thanks, Grant.

I do have the photobucket account and will be loading more of the pics from Saturday on there. Will post a link to it on here.

Will take some up close of the side scoops as well.

Thanks for the compliments as well.
