Hello from Topeka

Hey guys, I'm fairly new to this site, don't post a lot but get a lot of info from here.
I have a '66 Mustang. I have rebuild the 289 stroked it to a 347, built C4 tranny and a 4.11 posi. Way way too much gear but it make peeling the tires at will pretty fun.
I just installed both full floor pans, boy did it need it.

I hope to make it nice one of these years.

Welcome, It's hard for us to understand what you've got and what you're working on without pics. It's a requiremnet for newcomers to introduce themselves on here but we don't want a pic of the person but of the car. OK, it's not a requirement but some people on here can't dicipher without pics.

Here is my "starting point" I bought this Mustang as a Father / Daughter project. Somehow that's changed. The stock 289 had major engine problems. It needed rebuilt, so ended up purchasing a 347 kit, alum heads yada yada yada....

The previous owner brush painted the car..... He said because it was going to set outside and he wanted a thick coat of paint on it.

I have recently installed new floor pans, I hope this spring to sand and at least get the car in primer. This spring I hope to install new interior in her also.

I have the motor tore down again. I bought a roller cam, basically because I can't leave well enough alone.

Over all she is rough, but a decent starting point... LOL
