    I'm a 61 year young retired Army dude. I bought my 66 Mustang from an ole Army buddy of mine in the late 90's. Fast forward to now. I'm restoring this rascal for my grand daughter. I bought a 1965, 289 that's never been in a car. It was donated to a local junior college for their auto tech...

    Good Morning fellow Mustang Enthusiasts! While I normally lurk to read and educate, I normally don't post much. Want to thank everyone for posting their builds and questions because your discussions have helped me a lot over many years. Below is all about my 1966 fastback: I've been...

    I have a 66 289 and was curious what can I reliability and safely extract from it. That I am aware of it is a stock block, but I have heard things like Mexican blocks so I am not too sure about all that. I prefer to stick with it because it is already rebuilt and I feel it might be cheaper than...

    Hello everyone, my name's Will and I'd love any help you guys have. I've just put wilwoods on my little straight six (it's nice to be able to stop!) but when the wheels are fully turned they scrape the rotors. I filed a few mill off in an attempt to fix that, but the rub is still there. I'm...

    I have a 66 mustang coupe that I bought from a neighbor but it came with what some would call a "mystery motor" because we know nothing about it. We were planning on pulling off the valve covers and oil pan to check for any signs of it being rebuilt but we have no idea. The VIN number on the...

    Hello. I pulled the engine out of my 66 (converting to v8 from straight 6) and saw much more frame rust than expected. The passenger side doesn’t look too bad, but the drivers side inner rail is pretty much gone from the firewall to the rad support. To replace the frame rail, what will I need to...

    Hey everyone, so the fenders for my 66 were toast, I ordered some new ones and I noticed one has a plate bolted onto the round pan thing at the end of the fender, but the other doesn't have it. Anyone know what the purpose of these plates are? I still have the old fenders, so should I pull off...

    So none of my gauges work in my 66 mustang. The speedometer works fine but the other gauges don't, I just replaced the sending unit to see if that happened to fix the gas gauge but nope. I read a thing about the constant voltage regulator but could it be something else like a fuse? Im a little...

    Hello everyone! I am brand new here because I have just inherited a 1966 mustang couple with the six-cylinder engine and C4 trans. It's going to be a fun project for my family and I. But as the title says, it really doesn't run well. Let me explain. It will fire right up the very first turn of...

    Are bench seats original in a 66 mustang? I haven't seen one before with them at any shows or heard of them before. I bought a 66 mustang and I kind of like the idea of the bench seats in the front with the pull down arm rest after stumbling on one online. Since I have graduated and have spent...

    Hi there. I have a 66 Mustang convertible that I am looking to update to make it a reliable and safe "light" daily driver. I plan to do the work myself with a mechanic buddy but he does not have experience with vintage Mustangs so I am learning as I go. Besides the engine I am not sure what is...
