I just joined this forum after owning my mustang for a year and finding that most of my google searches brought me here and finding great information, figured I should sign up.
I own 1966 coupe, C code, 289, c4 that I picked up last year, I have always like the first gen coupe for some reason. Its seems to be a decent platform to start with, pretty straight with very little rust, candy apple red so my daughter named her Rosie. Most of its problems are poor m maintenance and "repairs" from previous owners. Lots of WTF moments in the last year fixing butchery from previous repairs.
My plans are to make some safety/performance upgrades as budget allows and keep it looking mostly stock, something my family will enjoy cruising around in.
In the last year I have already installed a 302, 4 barrel carb and intake, upgraded ignition, fusebox, seats, rebuilt gauges, removed power steering, replaced radiator and all new hoses, rebuilt driveshaft. And a bunch of other small things that were bugging me.
Up next is upgrading brakes, seat belts, suspension and lighting so I can actually drive her and feel somewhat safe on the road.
I want to thank this community for all the great info so far! Hope to see you on the road!
