    Hi, I am new here, my first car was a 1976 Cobra II white with red stripes, I have always liked Mustangs, there were some other first generation mustangs in my family. I bought it from a Ford employee in 1978, it had a four cylinder with an automatic transmission and vinyl seats, it looked cool...

    This is the day it all started back in 2015 when I was still in high school. Got the old girl pulled out of grandma's yard and over to a buddy's shop to get the restoration process started. Named the car Ellie after my grandma since she saved it for me.

    I have had a full set of 1966 hubcaps restored and they are currently highly polished stainless steel. I intend to repaint them back to stock colours and wonder what preparation should be used on the areas to be painted that wouldn't affect or damage the areas that are to remain polished...

    What would be the best build for a 66 289. I got my hands on a 289 and want to see what can I do with it and add to it. It has already been rebuilt, but lacks parts such as an intake manifold, carb, etc. I want to be able to use the most I can from what the rebuilt block came with, but I am not...

Recently I was under the car and noticed some rot in the from frame rail near the front bumper mounts and proceeded to check the rest of the frame rails finding...

    Hello to all. I recently purchased a 1970 Coupe with the original 302 block and a running 302 4v. It also came with almost all parts needed to complete restoration for $1k. I know, an amazing deal. However, the passenger quarter panel is pretty heavily damaged. Does anyone know where I could...

    In the next week I will be cutting my quarter panels where the red line is in the picture. My issue is that I need a way to draw a line on the old panel and new panel in the same place to get a good fit. First I thought to make a molding out of plexiglass but I couldnt find a sheet thin enough...

    I have a 66 coupe with a 289 v8 4 speed. The body is in great shape other than some dings in the paint. When I picked up this car I was looking for a replacement for my daily driver. (Pos cobalt) but I saw the mustang and had to have it! So I picked it up and bought another pos for my main form...

    I just bought a 65 coupe, but the last owner gooped on a ton of rubberized undercoating -rus-fre). I'm wondering if it should remove it. The stuff still feels flexible, so I don't think it's at the place where it's dry and flaking off and causing real big problems, but I've stripped the body to...

    Hello to all. My dad has a 1970 Mach 1 (a few actually) but one is painted raven black with a red interior. He is about to start restoring it and wants to paint it grabber blue and change the seats to black ones. My question is how rare (or lack there of) is this color combination? Iā€™ve tried...

    Is it possible to turbocharge one? I have only found one video about turbocharging a 200 and was wondering how would it work and is it feasible. What would I have to change, because I the engine needs to be upgraded to be able to sustain the power and other parts like the rear axle. How would...

    I'm new to the classic mustang community, and I've never done a restoration before, but I've been thinking of taking on a project. One of my big concerns is where to find parts, and I'm not sure where to look. Are there any websites or places I can look for various parts for 1st gen mustangs...

    I have been taking time off to try different combinations of what can be done with my car and I have been thinking of using a v8 289 I already got. Or thinking of switching to a 250 I can look for. Or use the most extreme option of using a Barra 6. I asked before for some build ideas, but with a...

    I know I could have bought a new one, it's not easy getting stuff here in the UK, plus I like fixing up old stuff ?

    I pulled these parts from my car several years ago and have kept in dry storage. Fuel tank, trunk mounted evap system, charcoal canister, and I think also have the filler neck for the tank and probably any other associated smaller parts. I can scope the tank to verify it's good condition. Will...

    How many hours do you think a decent shop would take on my 1965 A-code convertible, original front discs, 4 speed for a solid stock restoration? I'm not looking for a concours trailer queen. Something that could grab a couple show trophies would be fun, but someting that I can drive to work a...
