New Member Hello

Hello, Well it is nice to be here. I have a 66 coupe that I am in the process of restoring. I am part owner of are family body shop. I have done quite abit of work to the car so far. I have stripped it to point of I am starting to weld new sheet metal back in place of the old rusted parts. I have cut off the frame rails and rad. support ,firewall,floor, with alot of thinking before I had started thinking about buying a IFS Mustang II. I have changed my mind I am going with stock front. I removed the motor I was told it was a 289 from the PO. I took it in to have it machined to a 289 HIPO well come to find out it was a 260. So that was the end of the road for the 260. Since all that came about I bought a 302 EFI roller motor. I will not be using the EFI I am going with a carb. I will post some pics soon. Thanks
