This is a Frankenstein car. That's right, a coupe to fastback conversion. A stitched together hodge-podge, a blaspheme, a fake.
It took me nearly ten years to build it.
I had a great time.
A FEW NOTES: I could not have done this without mega-help from all you here at VMF. I started to make a thank you list of specific members but gave up when I realized I was sure to leave someone out. Some of you know who you are, some don't. I'll mention David "22GT" and Bart "Woodchuck" (these days). They were prominent for suspension, brakes, cooling system, other things too.
THE TRUE SHORT THROW REMOTE SHIFTER I DEVISED DESERVES IT'S OWN THREAD:
THE "GRILLE FORWARD" DESIGN IS ANOTHER CUSTOM FEATURE, NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT ON AN EARLY MUSTANG:
THE DASTARDLY DR. FRANKENSTEIN AND HIS EVIL CREATION:
65 C Code hardtop from California still wearing it's original paint.
Roller 331, TW 170 heads, T-5z, FiTech EFI, HiPo Manifolds, Arvinode exhaust, SoT Bilstien coilover front suspension, TJ on eBay 8" 3.40 Trac-Loc 3rd member. Mustang Steve 2008 GT bracketed 12.4" front disks
Doesn't have a name, but is akin to Nightmist Blue. Due to the lighting late in the day it may appear as solid, but it's metallic with little flecks of gold, red, and green mixed in.
Let's call it Knotmist Blue.
I painted my project Nightmist Blue as well. It looks spectacular in person. Had a police officer come to do the vin verification and he couldnít stop raving about how good it looks. Decent amount of flake when in the sun.
