I am new to this forum, but a vet of several others. All though I own both, I am more to the classics and will be here more often than not.
I just finished up a long restoration of a 1966 Coupe. The car was purchased new by my mother in January of 1966 and was passed down to me in 1985. The car was a 289 2bbl c-4 car. I modified the car (mostly to go fast) myself for many years, and six years ago decided to hand it to a professional to finally do it right.
I went the restomod route, but wanted to keep the factory lines of the car.... ie no flares or tubs. Thought I would post a few pics of the finished car.
The car was stripped to the bones, and built back up from scratch.
-331 stroker, front discs from a 1970 Torino, rear discs/9 inch from a Lincoln with 355 posi, 6 point cage, 5 speed from a 1993 Cobra, GT350 front apron, bumper delete, painted rear bumper.
The doors are new, and the hood is fiberglass... Other than that all of the body is original. Floor pans are all original as well.
Koni Suspension, Sub frame connectors.
Black with metal flake ghost stripes.
Enjoy the pics and I am glad to have found the site.

This is my first post on VM and I have to say that your car is awesome. I just purchased my first Mustang (66 coupe) a few weeks ago. It's very original or else I'd love to restore it very similar to yours. This is one of the coolest coupes I've seen. Nice work
