    Iā€™ve been working on a 1966 Ford Mustang for a few months now, bringing it up to being road legal and just got the plates for the car.

  3. 1970 Coupe Quarter Panel

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    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...

  5. Best way to cut Quarter Panel?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    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...
  6. 66 coupe daily driver?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    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...
  7. Should I Remove Undercoating

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    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...
  8. Dad’s 1970 Mach 1

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    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...
  9. Turbocharging a ford i6 170

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    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...
  10. Where can I get parts for a restoration?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    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...
  11. What can be done with 10k budget, a 1964.5 coupe, and a 170 and C4 transmisson?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    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...

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    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 ?
  13. 1970 Mach 1 CA Emissions Fuel Tank & Parts

    1969 through 1970 Mustang Parts For Sale
    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...
  14. How many hours would you guess on this car?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    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...
  15. What can I do with 20k to 30k and a 1964.5 Mustang i6 170?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    If I set a budget of about 20 to 30 thousand, instead of buying a newer mustang, what can I do to my Mustang? Can I restomod it to make it a daily driver? Can I change my i6 to a 302? My goal is to have a daily driver that is reliable and fun. I would have this budget include labor as I don't...

    I have some time to catch up on things today, so I wanted to take a few minutes to send a shout out to Mustang Barn in Harleysville, PA for the awesome work they did on my 1970 Mach 1 this summer.
