VEHICLE STORY

I am seventeen years old and I bought this car during my sophomore year in high school and it was an absolute pile!  I always knew I wanted a vintage mustang. I had grown up on stories of my mother's 65 fastback.  So, I started looking online and I found a 1970 mustang convertible but it was just a little too rough.  As a result, I turned it down. However, before I left the dealer who was selling it asked me if i needed a job and I said hell yes!  After a few months I had cleaned and serviced more cars than I cared to remember and my boss calls me in the office and says he found a car.   I walked in to his office an saw it. An arcadian blue 1966 mustang coupe with a tired 200ci inline six.  I went home asked my father if i could buy and he said yes so I slapped up all the money I had and bought it sight unseen. Yes, I know definitely not the smartest decision of my life. Thankfully, the car had only one rusted door since it came for and older man in California but the engine and brakes were absolutely junk.  So, I set out to make my car as nice as possible and a year later I have a new motor from a barn find 67 mustang with only 1,500 miles on it. The reason I got the motor was because the original block cracked after I spent six months rebuilding the stupid thing. The gentleman who had bought the barn find 67 mustang was interested in swapping the six that was in it for a v8 so I bought it for a whooping 150 dollars. But, yeah its still an inline six. Even so, it is not terribly slow. For what this car does not possess in speed it makes up for in handling as you may be able to tell by the upgrade list. Now, I continually daily drive and upgrade it. I love this car so much even thought it is not the nicest thing in the world its mine.

In the process of rebuilding my 200ci as well. I got the same camshaft as you from vintage inlines, but it looks like my stock timing chain and sprocket wont fit. Is it safe to assume that getting that dual roller timing chain from them will solve that problem?

[]STEVEN MARINO

The dual roller will correct this or you take the stock timing chain set to a machine shop and have them cut in +2,-2,+4,-4 degree marks.

Gorgeous car, very nice to see a '66 in such great condition.
