I just got this car last week (first 'Stang) and I wonder if it's the sort that should be kept original, or if I should pursue my restomods. It's nothing to brag about other than it is a 100% complete a-code car w/ factory intake and carb, and wide ratio 4spd toploader. Standard interior, manual drums, no A/C. What should i do?!

If you restomod it with bolt ons you can make it the way you want it, and if you keep the parts taken off you can put it back original.
If you do some drilling and hammering that is another story...

John's absolutely right. If you decide to restomod, try to keep your changes to those that are bolt-ons as much as possible -- and definitely hold onto the original drivetrain components. If I remember right, A-codes were about 10% or so of production. Not super rare, but still pretty desirable. What's the color scheme?

I did what John suggests. Mine has Magnum 500's, wheel well chrome, and it's painted the wrong color. It would be easy to put the rally wheel back and remove the wheel well chrome.

I am not making any more modifications. It has the original engine, tranny, etc. I am going to put a holley 550 on it, but keep the Motorcraft carb in a box.

I am all for modifications as long as I don't stray too far from original. Have fun.
