Yeah, I'm one of those guys that never starts a build thread. 🙄Thanks, biggest undertaking of my life. I searched to see if you had a build thread and found a post from 2017 that you were back. The car looks great, but need more details. Hopefully you will get back to posting on the car.
And I've been back at 4 least times. I started on my project in 2003. Barn find 67 vert for my then-15-year-old son. He gave up on it after 2 years and the first cross-country move. I declared it mine and decided I was going to build a restomod. I needed a motor, and found a donor 91 LX. Back then Ford Racing didn't make swap kits, so you had to pull the harness if you wanted to run EFI. It had been done, but was not a common thing, and the vendors hadn't caught on yet.
I moved the car with the new motor and T5 installed, but not running, from WA to AK in 2006. Then I moved the roller again from AK to FL in 2013. Then I swapped bodies in Jan 14 (long story involving bondo'ed frame rails and a deceptive body shop). That led to a reality-TV-show build to try to get the car ready for the 50th (I could have sworn there was a thread on here from that time) that came up just short, so we did Charlotte in my 2013 GT500.
The car got delayed again by a house remodel, so it wasn't done before the move from FL back to WA in 2016. The 2017 "back again" was short-lived--work keeps getting in the way. But THIS TIME I'm really going to finish it!!! 😁
I started it 2 weeks ago. Wasn't bold enough to put it in gear, but at least in theory it's drivable.
Maybe this winter l will write that thread.
Sorry for the hijack.
