    What was the cost of the car itself? If it wasn't too high, that's actually not a bad deal for a perfectly built show condition Mustang. And what will probably be a very fast one at that.

    Very nice, my Dad has a 65 Fastback with a 302 and T5 in her. I'll have to post some pics once I replace the power supply in my desktop computer.

    Very nice car.
    I'm restoring a 69 mach 1 so I know what you went through to get it that far.
    Are you adding an export brace and monte carlo bar or using an aftermarket front shock tower support?
    Is that the flaming river rack and pinion?

    Lots of goodies and alot of money spent on that car to make it as nice as it is.


    :thumbsup:

    Some updated pics for you all, as you know I'm also in the process of building a 1964 Thunderbolt clone, even while I'm still hammering away at this one too, and yes I finally got to start the engine on this one about 2 weeks ago, and damn does it sound healthy, nice to hear your own mechanical music box you built run.

    As you will notice I tried to hide as much wiring in the fenderwells as possible to make for a cleaner under hood apperance.

    Very nice job. It's got to be a great thing to be able to work on the cars you work on. Keep up the good work - keep us updated - and keep on keeping on. :thumbsup:

    Yes sir it is, it has it's own calibrator for setting the fuel tune and it plugs directly into the PCM.

    Nice set-up will see how easy it is to tune, once it gets road worthy.
