Newish to Mustangs
Middle aged guy that has always loved many classic muscle cars (GTO’s, Chevelles, Mustangs, Camaro’s). Built a pro-touring ‘67 Camaro and painted it Ford metallic gray (paint code TK), so you can see I have no allegiance to any manufacturer.
Sadly it was parted out on me while I was deployed by a criminal shop. Long story, well documented online. But that was years ago. I’m back and now I have a decent driver of a ‘65 Mustang with a 91-96 F1SE 5.0. She’s my daily driver, so I’m limited to weekend projects now, but someday (possibly soon) I want to start a full restomod build.
Goal is to plan it all out, and execute the plan in perfect order.
Wish list includes:
Total Control full front clip with subframe connectors and x-brace
Tubular framing in engine bay
Coil over front
Rack and pinion
G-Link rear shortened 9” and mini-tubs
Wilwood or Baer discs all the way around
Coyote or very stout stroker with EFI (will still be my daily driver when done)
6 speed manual transmission
TMI custom interior
Weatherstripping that works
Power windows that work
Electrical system that works
Heat & a/c that works
Gauges that work
Stereo system that works
Roll cage (at least 4 point, and tucked in tight to the body)
Body, probably a nice set of custom steel wheel flares shave unnecessary badging
Molded flushed bumpers
Flushed windshield and rear window
Rhino lined or similar ultra-tough undercoating
Sound and heat deadened throughout interior and trunk
Then probably go with a matte black paint job and matte black staggered 17”-18” wheels
Goal is a very strong, reliable, mean classic muscle car as my daily driver.
Wish me luck playing the lottery.
