I bought a pretty nice 67 coupe 2 weeks ago and have been trolling the boards ever since. It's in pretty good shape, hardly any rust and a good straight body. Has a straight six for now and I'm planning an eventual 5.0 roller block replacement. The 200 runs but it has a knock, so I've pulled it apart and doing a mini-rebuild to keep it running while I save up for the first project. I don't know a lot about cars, but I always loved muscle cars and I know how to turn a wrench. Looking forward to learning a lot while fixing this one up.

I plan on doing the suspension first. Disk breaks, rack and pinion, new shocks and springs, Shelby drop and a new rear end (ford 9" from what I've been reading here?) For the front I am considering foregoing the individual items and getting a TCI bolt in solution, http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/53-54-55-56-57-58-59-60-61-62-CORVETTE-MUSTANG-II-I-F-S_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ34200QQihZ002QQitemZ120197677670QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW#ebayphotohosting . What do you guys think?

After that I'll drive it around some more while I build up my 5.0 to drop in. Here are some pics.
