67 coupe

updated: Dec 2nd 2008 @ 03:29 AM
this is what the 67 first looked like when i got it  


list of minor things i found wrong in first day
#1. 4 wheel manual drum brakes suck       ** changed to 4 wheel power disk brakes **
#2. there was a bad swaying issue when accelerating or decelerating **after rebuilding the front end i realized it was the rear bushings and springs that  were worn out, rides great now **
i have to give thanks to Shaun from  Street or track for all the help with the perfect suspension setup  http://www.streetortrack.com/
#3. driver side floor pan needed (i could do a fred flinstone! )  done
#4. no fuel gauge and if you filled the tank to full it leaked out the filler neck! done
#5. front pas fender and apron damager in small wreck! done
#6. pass window would not work and 2 inches down 
#7. pass floor board needed minor repair
#8. locked the car in the drive way and then realized the door is keyed differently and i had no key for doors!
#9. both hood and trunk lid have severe rust, needs replaced! ** both fiberglass from eleanor kit **
#10 interior was shot and needs redone  ** needs to be redone still, just cant decide if car is gonna be yellow or dark blue though **
This was while i was rebuilding the front end ( new 620lb coil springs, roller spring perches, upper and lower control arms, ball joints  new 1-1/8 swat bar, all poly bushings, new shocks, and new baer bump steer kit! ) also have power steering but no need for it now car turns great!

once again street or track for the msd parts monte carlo bar and export brace

engine is 351 w  had stock points style distributor no name coil and some oooold wires that still 2 months after i removed them hold their shape now has msd ready to run distributor msd wires and blaster coil, also added strut bar and monte carlo bar .
as you can see front and rear wheels are different, fronts are steel chrome rears are aluminum 

  wheels are  ready to install another great deal from street or track
rears are 17x9.5 wide and fronts are 17x8

these are wheels going on the mustang
