I have a 67 coupe. I bought her in 96. 1999 I was putting a set of springs in her, and the garage caught fire. I think she's still salvageable, but it sometimes seems that I'm the only one besides my wife.

Welcome BMad,
I'm glad you and your stang survived the fire.It definately looks like you've got a good sized project going.Looking at the picture it's hard to tell,Did the metal of the car get super heated by the fire? I've seen worse condition Mustangs brought back so I would say yours is saveable. I see the roll cage in your car what were you looking to build,Were you doing a drag car,a Trans Am style car,etc?

It was built in the 70's to drag race. They put a shortened 9in that is braced with ladder bars. It originally had a 390 fe engine, but when I bought it, she had a 1969 302 in (the same one that I'm building for my 83 fox). The roof and fenders are warped, but the fire vented before it got too much heat.

Wow, That's about all I can say.I'm glad you were ok.Did it catch fire while you were working on it? I wish you alot of luck bringing that car back,It must be alot of fun working with heat warped metal. Are you planning on rebuilding it as a pro street type car again?

Yeah, I thinking pro street, maybe make her a fast back. I figure that I have a blank slate, so the sky (or budget) is the limit. I was putting a set of rear springs in, and when the rear end was out, a box fan in the window that caught fire.

Well Prochager does not make a big unit for early Mustangs. The unit hangs off to the left and would hit the inner fender. I could have removed a smaller peice but I will more then likely have a cover made when I have the tin work redone in the trunk. The next problem is the shock tower. The inlet for the blower hits the shock tower. In order to fix this I cut a section of it out and added a forward bar to help brace the front of the shock tower. I also have the bar on the back side of the tower going inside to the main cage for support.
I will add pictures later if you are interested in seeing the inlet I made and how the whole thing looks. I molded in a 4 inch inlet in the head lamp door. Basically build a ram air type of set up. Did some thinking and with the help of some Spin Tech tubing came up with a pretty unique set up!

Thanks for the interest!

Mustang GT200's latest status update: looking for free time
Default Re: 64-73 Owners where are you hiding?

My name is Tim. I live in Amherst NY and I have a 1968 coupe. 6 cylinder-3 speed. I just put the finishing touches on a new fully ported and polished head with an Offenhauser triple carb manifold. I have a new ISKY racing cam and pistons ready to go in the bottom end as soon as my wallet heals. I am still looking for 1 more Holley carb (List 1921-S) to complete the top end. It was originally used on a 60-61 Ford Falcon (the 1st Mustang). I'd be interested in any condition.
