Hey guys. I drive (well not currently) a 1966 mustang coupe. Currently getting the car painted and some body work done. At the same time im building up the 289 (actually has 302 heads) to around 320 horsepower so it should have a little bit of power behind the wheels. Planning on putting some 3.43's and making the rear posi. Also putting on disc brakes and flowmaster exhaust. Heres a couple pics of the car. When we first got the car, the front valence was worn, so we bought a new one for 60 dollars and threw it on. In addition, we put in some seatbelts, and replaced all the worn emblems (going back on permanently after paint.) Aswell as these things, i'm also doing little things like replacing the steering wheel, got a new shift knob, and am completely redoing the interior. I'm getting the entire car repainted right now, everything including the engine bay. She was a little worn when we got her, but is looking a whole lot better now.
When we first got her
After cleaning up the wheels a bit
Not sure if many of you are BMW fans, but the car is getting painting Laguna Seca Blue with either two or a single alpine white stripe (can't make a final decision!)
Here is it just after some body work. (Removed all rust and lined up all the panels.)
Possible Stripe Idea
Right now the engine bay just got done being painted, and the engine is at the builder getting some new cams, carb and being completely rebuilt. The engine already has a malory ignition and headers, so at least a little work was done.
Thats it so far. Let me know what you think
