Here is my new 67 mustang fastback project. Its an original GT spec 289 car.
Its a little rougher on front frame rails and rear torque than I would have liked but hey, it is nearly 50yrs old.
Some work already done to it, whoever put the rear ¼ and roof on it, was well............, poor workmanship.......has New roof and half floors.
Plan is a restomod that will take me circa 3yrs to complete.
Why 3years? Well bit of budget related stuff and was trying to get some use of it in spring/summer and then carry the work out over the winter in each year. I will be doing most of the work myself as I'm just finishing a 3yr resto on my '70 Mach 1.
1970 Mach 1 resto
Plan was to start using it as is for this spring/summer, but will have to patch the front frame rails and rear torque box, so might need a plan B as I'm booked to go to the Le Mans Classic in less than 3 months time and I wont get the car in my new place for another 4 weeks.
I was going full Eleanor bodykit, but having second thoughts at the moment,as thinking a nice plain jane 67, sort of along the lines of a GT500 would be nice.
I as also going for a Coyote conversion, but the rules over here in England are really starting to be tightened on historic cars and should not really be modified from original, so alas a Coyote might catch the bureaucrats eyes..........
What I will definitely be doing the following, mainly mustangs to fear ltd kit:
Front chassis frame rails with subframe connectors and front IRS,
Rear coil overs with 9” diff
Stick shift 5/6 speed
Engine -as least 450BHP at the flywheel - 351W EFI stroker or Coyote (see above)
Exterior/body: GT500 or full Eleanor look
Repaint; dark blue metallic type modern paint colour
Interior; new wiring harness, GT500 type dash and console, BMW E30 leather seats (have these already), roll cage etc
that's just the initial list, more to think as I go along I'm sure..........
So fellas what do you think about my options/ choices ?
