Fingers are a bit tired after tapping out my Mustang’s life story, so I’ll keep this one brief !!
Bought through a contact in the Mustang Club, I bought this old long-wide over a year ago, but the seller has done some work for me before shipping
This is how it was when I agreed to buy it
Started off by getting a new screen...
Then, when pricing up the cost of an engine rebuild and bespoke 62 suspension parts, things got a bit more radical…!!
Donor 1977 C-20 (3/4te, complete with Goodwrench motor)
Some may say it’s sacrilegious, but most won’t spot it, plus it’ll benefit me with power steering, power brakes, coil springs, etc, etc. Any tips on avoiding a Q plate are most welcome !!
Then, things started to go a bit pear-shaped with the builder’s home life, so updates were few and far between. All of a sudden though, I got a call to say it was sat at California Connection’s site in Ramona, ready to go.
It’s since landed and been offloaded at their place in Derby and all seems well. I had hoped to get it lowered over there (notch and flip kit), but preparatory work has been done so shouldn’t be too difficult once time and money allows.
It’s got a 3’ Lokar Radical shifter and matching handbrake, plus I’ve got the obligatory Mexican blankets, etc, etc to go on. No plans other than to lower it, drive it, maybe paint over the primer (and age it to match the weathered stuff) and then, possibly, tow the Mustang (Trans-Am tribute) to shows as a matching period unit…?
More to follow as and when…!!
