      Love early fastbacks, and what a great color combo! Nice job VW makes some great silvers/grays- my fiance actually used Silver Arrow on his '66 SS396 (the factory GM silver is kind of milky). The only thing I would be tempted to change is the wheels, for
      Salt flats but with spinners,


      Or Cobra wheels

      Next up we moved to the front.
      We decided to swap the drums over for a power disc set-up. We also went with all now components; upper and lower a arms, larger sway new kyb gas shocks and 1” drop springs. We also went with a 4 piston caliper. Here are before during and after:

      We had just lightly scrapped off some undercoating before we started removing everything.


      Old with the old


      Cleaned and primered


      Undercoated


      New suspension


      And the new brake set-up

      Next we tackle the engine bay and tired out 302.

      Tear down and clean up.




      Pile of parts. Mostly junk


      Tranny back and ready


      Pile of goodies







      notice the cobra watching from a distance




      Ready for paint

      Beautiful car. You don't live out in the Old Richmond Road area, do you? Background of the pics looks familiar (I ride my bike out there).

      Did you take it all the way down or was the bottom end in good enough shape that it didn't warrant it?

      Great build. I agree about the ghost stripes. The car looks gooooooood.

      You'll need to bring it up to Louisville sometime and let me know so that I can check it out.

      IIRC mustang engines have an X in their engine code, or something like that.

      never really got some proper photos up. thought some of you would enjoy.










      just been showing the car, probably pulling the motor this summer and doing more of a build.

      As time passes, the better-looking the early Mustangs become. It's the ultimate test of a truly classic design. Beautiful car, OP!
      Do you enjoy old cars and long-winded stories about them? If your answer is "yes", then you might enjoy my blogpage. Try it here: http://vwlarry.blogspot.com . Leave a comment, too; I love feedback! Thanx for reading.

      Gorgeous car and I appreciate the update!

      I read my previous post on here and I bet 2010 me while appreciating your car as much then as I do now, never would have guessed that he's have his own mustang (albeit a new one).

      Love the steering wheel, btw!
