Just found this site while searching the web and thought I would join. I have a 66 mustang coupe. Right now it has the 200ci 6 cyl w/ a c4 in it but I plan on stuffing in a 351. I am in the process of upgrading the exterior and chassis before I put in a 351. So far I have put in a Ron Davis Alum. radiator and moroso overflow tank and moroso tranny cooler. I will post pics later on of everythin, these are the only ones I could find. On the tranny cooler I ran all the lines inside the subframe so it is pretty neat to see from underneath cause all you see is the cooler. As for the exterior I have put on some 17" cobra wheels mounted on the 245/45 tires. Since it was originally 4 lug, I installed some SSBC front disk brakes and put in a 8" rear out of a 79 granada. For the front I used some 64 commit spindles and am putting on the flaming river rack n' pinion kit. Since these pics. I have swapped the rear and have the wheels/tires on the back. I had to use a 1/2" spacer to make them clear the leafs. I will eventually put on air ride tech. bolt in 4-link system, but that won't be until early next year. The front has 1 1/8" sway bar, koni adjstable shocks, and eibach progressive lower springs. The front is lowered 2" and the back now has a 2" block in it to make the car sit level. Hopefully have other pics up within the next day or so. What do you all think?

Sounds like you're having a project on your hands! Me and my dad refurbished a 69 back in the 80's, a five year job... Fun Fun, and addictive, I'm driving a 05 now but have soon built all I can (want to) on that, so as soon as my life slows down I'll get a rust bucket (pref -69) and build it better than my dads! :sterb:

I'm sure you can get help with your tech questions in the forums here, lotsa knowledge around! If not here in the introduction section try the apropriate tech forums from the drop downs high up on these pages!

Good Luck and Enjoy!
