I talked to a guy the other day and he is wanting to his 1967 mustang. The prpblem all parts been stripped so the car can be painted. No big deal. All the parts are there. According to a friend who I trust. The car has kept garaged and need attention done to the engine. I guessing a rebuild job. ANd he said some heads. Alright. no big deal. I plan on making this my daily driver I have been told it had a 3 speed in it. If so what gears would I need to keep from having put a new transmission in. I really don't much on vintage mustangs but they look good. And I afraid of being taking advantage of. Please help!

Be afraid, be very afraid! You are over your head and in danger of consuming large amounts of time, money, and garage space; and most of all, having a new hobby. If you tell us the vehicle identification number we can tell you if the car is special in any way. Can you take pictures and post them? What type of experience does your friend have relevant to this Mustang and is he willing to make a long term commitment to helping you with this sort of project?

I'm assuming that it's a V8 because you said "heads". Is the rear end a 9" or 8"? If you build an engine with alot of power, you should have the 9". With a 3-speed tranny the highest I would go would be 3.55 if you don't plan much highway driving, but 3.25 would good for both highway and the street. Hopefully your friend labeled all the parts so you know what they are and where the go! Good luck.

The problem with unassembled project cars is How organized was the diassembly. Did the person who removed all the items bag and tag them so you know where they go? The process of assembling a car is hard enough even when you know where the stuff goes. I do not understand your question about the 3 speed and what gears to keep. If you could maybe rephrase the question with some more detail and your preference of automatic or manual we could suggest a solution.
