    Hello collective wisdom: I need some advice. I have a 66 coupe with a 351w shoved into it. Runs great, love it. The front end needs some help. I know a number of you out there have the same or similar set up. What kind of springs and shocks are you happy with? Thanks.

    Yesterday I bought this 1966 Mustang. It was $200. The entire car is there, it is just taken apart. It even has Pony edition blue and white seats. I cannot wait to start working on this car! My goal is to have it finished in 3 years at the max. Plans are to make it matte black (I think). This...

    Howdy, I am a bit (actually a lot) confused about something. At the different parts sites, I see them differentiating between V8 steering and 6 cyl steering. I don't understand what the engine size has to do with the steering. I would think that they are independent. My 66 coupe project...

    Hello AFM, My dad passed away in 2015 and of course I inherited the 1966 Mustang we had been working on off and on over the last 8 years. I'd like to get the car up and running again so that I can figure out what to do with it (I don't think it's financially reasonable to finish the...

    2 and a half years ago I acquired my 66 coupe from a family friends dad who unfortunately passed. He was the 2nd owner (making me the third) and kept it garaged and in great shape. I was never really a Ford guy (1st car was a 1970 Nova), but I have completely fallen in love with this car -...

    I bought this car about a year ago. It ran "ok" but had some lagging during acceleration. The carb looked pretty well worn so i sent it out to be rebuilt. Before removing the carb the car would start and run smooth, just not accelerate as good as it should. Got the carb back and now the car...

    I've got two projects going at once, a 1957 Ford F100 and a 1966 C code Mustang coupe. I just got the parts together for a Crown Vic front end swap for the truck and started thinking this would be great for the Mustang. Unfortunately the tape measure made me weep a bit as the Crown Vic front...
