Sweet Jesus.....awesome thread! Awesome project! Awesome results!!!
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
And the new brake set-up
Next we tackle the engine bay and tired out 302.
Ready for bay work
I wasn’t there when it was pulled so these are the first shots I have of it.
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

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.
As time passes, the better-looking the early Mustangs become. It's the ultimate test of a truly classic design. Beautiful car, OP!
