Default Build con't

The doors had the door handles shaved and the front suspension is Heidts mustang II.
It has new quarters.
Had to replace the taillight panel but kept the shelby trunk lid.
I found two factory doors with door handles.
Cleaned up the floor pans which were very good and put por 15 on all floor pan metal top and bottom. Have redone the brakes in the rear.

Problem here the 289 that came with the car is a 5 bolt bellhousing and I have a 6 bolt... time to find another motor. Shame this one doesn't look to have many miles on it either.

Got some really nice Coy rims for the car at Louisville swap. They look very bullitt type.
