My New 1967 Mustang Road Racer

As you can see from my joint date on this forum, I've wanted a Mustang for a long time. Well I finally got one!

This car was turned into a time trials racer about 12 years ago and I'm planning to update and upgrade a few key safety items to take it wheel to wheel racing. I'm looking forward to sharing progress update and after action reports with you guys!

I did an intro write up with more detail on my site AutoXandTrack here: AutoXandTrack Mustang.



As mentioned in the article, immediate plans include a new fuel cell, adding second door bar to the passenger side, updating the belts and window net and doing some driver ergonomic changes.

Here is a quick walk around video too.

Chad what wheels and tires are on your Mustang?
What offset and did you have to use spacers?

Thanks

Wow, came here to say congratulations expecting to see some cancer patient had been picked up by someone who didn;t know what they were getting into.

Could not be further off!

That car is badass, all it needs is a functional hood :-D

Any plans on opening up the hood scoop? I have the same hood and wondering on how to do it without it looking like a hack job.

I did mine it's easy. This is the second hood I have done myself. Just take your time.

Did you extend the hood surface beyond the opening? My hood has the metal bracing underneath. I would like to have it finished on the bottom as well as the top.
