Hey guys nice to be able to join another mustang community. I live outside of St. Louis, Missouri and recently acquired a 66 fastback in its original Tahoe turquoise over aqua interior with factory A/C. The car goes well with my 13 coyote and is much more fun to drive.
Engine is a fresh built 302 from an 87 foxbody with a T5 trans from a foxbody too. AFR heads, forged pistons, air gap intake, 750 carb yada yada...
Still has drum breaks all around which are a pain in the *** but will most likely be going with a full roadster shop spec chassis with 6 pistons on all corners in the future as safety is my #1 goal and then add some forced induction later as well.
that is some serious coin for the Roadster shop chassis.
IMO it would be a shame to do to major surgery to such a nice looking car. The stock platform of course has limits but can be made to handle and stop very well
