Reminds me of my fastback. So far its got new floor, firewall, lower cowl, front aprons, rad support, and crossmember. Still needs rear quarters and taillight panel due to a couple crappy repair jobs a long time ago.

That's a huge project, but a good one too! You're keeping that custom steering wheel though, right?

Going to be a sweet car, off to a solid start so far. Any thoughts on switching over to a manual transmission? You should be able to find a date code correct 390 motor for your car. I don't think they were VIN stamped that year so you are probably off the hook on "numbers matching"

Give us some more info from the Marti, it's a GT right?

I will convert it to manual. I have a 4spd toploader.
Could not find a correct 390 in Kuwait . Shipping is a killer from the US.
But I found I 428fe . For 2k .
Marti attached .

So it's an S code with heavy duty suspension but it's not a GT. No power steering and no disc brakes. I haven't seen one quite like it before.

I love a white fastback, they look very Shelby-esque. Maybe think about a blue interior and blue stripes to go along with the white paint. 1965 GT350 inspired.
