All I can say is wow! That’s been quite a journey, but it will all be worth it in the end when you have a gorgeous car. As the owner of a 66 2+2 I can say that you will love it. I’m sure it will be like nothin else in Spain. I am looking forward to following your progress. Enjoy!
Yes indeed you do not see many mustangs in Spain and very fewer fastbacks, to be honest most provably I am the only freak to do a coupe to fastback conversion here, so expensive the import taxes for the parts, labor and issues had on the way, but if it works then it worth


sorry, lost in translation....I learned it from the tv show gomer pyle...alway used to crack me up. I had no idea about the movie or music app !

I've enjoyed reading your thread, Mawa. Ordinarily, I'm against a fastback conversion, but I think if ever there was a candidate car, you've got it. Best wishes on your conversion- you're going to have a really cool car soon, turning Spanish heads as well as anyone else who happens to see you drive by. You're really getting into the thick of it. It is fun to watch as a bystander.

If I can offer one bit of advice, it would be this: change your signature! :lol:

Thanks a lot!
You know when you are thinking too much and the car takes too much, crazy ideas come to your head. And fastback was the craziest so I decided to do it. Thanks for your support

Hi All,

During long long time the threat has been quite not active, my father did passed away and I have had a lot of work.

He did passed away the same day we did put the Shelby hood pins. We did it together so I feel it special.

The was sanded by me, the picked and cutted by mechanics in a repair garage I trust but they always take so long. Finally last week came wheedled to home where I painted the interior and today was picked up for a paint workshop to be finished.

Here some pics attached from the process

Almost ever sheet metal is new which is quite cool ant the structure is reinforced, also cool. New welding as well.

Here is the interior after changing the steering wheel, adding a gt350 tribute gauge, and tint the panels and repairing the dash.

And also on while picking it up to the paint shop

Hi all, I have finally received from CJ pony parts the right rear window. they have covered the window, the shipping and the customs, so I cannot give a better feedback, excellent support in International deals.

So in the paint shop the have started sanding a bit, and giving some filler to the parts joints and welding. Next week I guess they will advance more.

They told me that the target is to finish it in three weeks, one has passed already so... counting down, it will be in approximately 2 weeks.

Here some more filler preparing it to sand a bit.

They are not going too fast but the project in general has been extremely slow so I keep it calm!

Your car is a 1966 Model, so it should have an Original 200cid motor unless someone has swapped it out for a 170cid engine from early 1965 or earlier.

Your Back Seat Seatbelts are Originals!..but not the Front Seatbelts It looks like you have a 2.77 ratio 3-speed stick which was standard equipment in all 1965-1966 6cyl. Mustangs.

Your engine has a replacement 1940 Holley Carburetor.

The Choke assembly on the carb and choke/heater hoses on the carb manifold have also been disconnected.

Your Original seats appear to be in good shape! Though the seat covers are in good shape, They have some non-original Blue Velour inserts sewn into them.

The Steering wheel is an obvious replacement.

It looks like the Clearcoat from it previous "flamed" paintjob...has disintegrated. You will probably have to bring the car down to bare metal to correctly repaint it.

The Dashboard has an Original UNCUT Radio Portal. A Bonus! Nice!

Since the car is a California bought car, It would be interesting to see the underside of the car to see the condition. Please post more pics of the underside bottom of the car so we can see how much of a good a deal you got.

Congrats on getting the car!

Thanks,

Tony K.

Hi guys,

Now the car is running and I already went to some car shows this weekend, it was awesome, the car runs and sounds incredible. We are still working on the brake pump but eventually it will be solved (second brake pump).
