Nice looking car. Any reason for the Mustang II front end? Many here will recommend against that .....
i like the lowered stance that can be achieved with coilovers. Also the the wider wheels that can be used with the mustang 2 suspension. I also want to drop in a coyote engine eventually.

Everyone wants to do a Mustang II suspension and Coyote engine when they first buy their 65/66 and don't know anything.
well some of us do our research before we make assumptions.

This is my list of todos....

I need the shock towers deleted.

i need mustang 2 crossmember.

I need subframe connectors.

Then i know i need to change my entire suspension and rear end.

Then new disc brakes need to be added.

then i need to update my wiring.

then the transmission tunnel need to be enlarged.

The rightside firewall needs to moved back to be even with left side.

then i need a donor car for the coyote.

then i need ford control packs.

then need a few k for unknowns.

So yes i know what basically needs to be done @jdub

It sounds like you have a good general idea what needs to be done. You could simplify some of it by using a custom chassis from Roadster Shop, Schwartz Performance, Morrison. something like that. For the engine you can purchase the Ford Coyote Power Module (engine, trans, controller, harness). If you are throwing larger brakes on you might want to add in some budget new wheel/tires too. you could price out a Schwartz online here 1964–1973 Mustang Chassis - Schwartz Performance to get an idea of costs.

However you decide to go get a plan with some specifics and work towards it.

"I want a pretty bad suspension so I can have a somewhat better than average engine."

Tons of research goes into that decision. 😆

Are you doing some of this work, or will you farm all of it out?

Before buying anything suspension I would suggest you look into names like "Opentracker", "Street or track" & "Mike Maier inc" WAY.....better options there than Mustang II, and a generic bolt on 4-link
