Thought I'd post for those of you that might be interested. Richards got a new project:
1967 Ford Mustang coupe.
The car was from Louisville Kentucky. It was originally painted Wimbledon White with a black vinyl roof. Around 2009 the car was restored. It was repainted in Brittany blue and the engine rebuilt.
The engine is a 289 v8 with a 3 speed automatic gearbox.
Paint is pretty good, mechanically it needs some work, electrics need quite a lot of work.
So far we have made a number of small fixes and upgrades; seals, dampers, electric fan, little bits or wiring, indicator cam, fuel filler tube, water pipes, dome light, re-wiring the side light which were amusingly wrong (some how passed Iva/ mot with the previous owner
Exhaust is next on the list, it's currntly so loud it makes yours ears ring after a short drive. We've got silencers from the Australian company Varex - electronic controlled flap lets you turn into a straight through type box like the magnaflows i have on the sportster (which I may change to Varex on there too)
