VEHICLE STORY

I have owned this 1967 Mustang since 2001 when I was 14. It was bought by my dad for $600 and together we have slowly replaced the old worn out parts. I have been doing most of the work and purchasing which is part of why it is still in the condition it is in. When we brought it home, the car was in original condition save the engine which was a 302 from a 1968 or 1969 Fairlane. It had been sitting in the Arizona sun for nearly 10 years and has sat nearly as long under my watch while slowly gathering parts. The car has 1" lowering springs all around as well as a 1" arning "Shelby" drop. The anti-roll bars have been beefed up and the old drum brakes replaced with disc brakes off a 1977-79 Ford Granada. It was originally a power steering car but the PS has been removed. I will eventually install a Borgeson 14:1 integral PS box. I am currently in the middle of a 5.0 efi, T5 manual, and 8.8" rear axle swap. The 5.0 has an e303 cam, Edelbrock Performer heads and upper and lower intake manifolds. Long tube headers, stock throttle body and injectors, and a Canton T-pan. Based on research, the previous owner of the 91 fox donor car, and talking with others, it should be good for about 320ish hp at the flywheel or 280ish at the wheels. I will have it dyno tuned once it is back on the road. The look I am going for is a modern interpretation of a 60s Trans Am race car like Bill Maier's 1968 Mustang (the blue car in the pics).
