Here's my 68 coupe. I bought it as a running, driving car with a mild 351W, 9" rear, and TKO transmission. Drove it for a few months, then couldn't resist the tinker bug and started with mods. I added multi port fuel injection, seats from a new Mustang and a few other things. One day, I was reading the December 2019 issue of Mustang Monthly - the cover car was a beautiful 1966 Mustang that Shines Customs in Tennessee built for a retired Air Force Colonel. I thought "I wish I could do that...", and then made that fateful call - dropped the car off to Shines Customs a few months later.

Almost a 3 year build, every piece of the car is either new or rebuilt. I chose every detail, but left the craftsmanship to the master. It has about 750 miles on it now and drives amazing.

I kept a build thread here on VMF if you want to see the whole evolution.
