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 worthAll 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!
Thanks a lot, nice complemente and thanks for the definition, it was out of my vocabulary, my apologiessorry, 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! <img src="http://forums.vintage-mustang.com/images/smilies/lol.gif" border="0" alt="" title="lol" class="inlineimg" />
Tony great comment! much appreciated for such a detailed analysis.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!
