Here she is! FINALLY

Recommended Posts

After 2 long years my car has finally come back home. It has been a long process and honestly I don't want to do it again. But the ends justify the means. This car has alot of family history and it deserved to be brought back to all its glory with a little of my touches added.

My wifes mom owned the car back in the 80's and my wife drove it to high school. I bought it when we were dating in 1992 and it was my daily driver for a few years. It sat on the side of our new house for about 8-9 years and I decided it was time to bring it back to life.

I met a guy a long time ago at a local mustang shop and I still go there today. They were the ones that did the retoration for me. I am sure they are glad I am done and out of the shop. I was there alot bugging them "when is my car gonna be done". It was very cool watching it come together over the years.

This car draws alot of attention when it's on the road. The exhaust is VERY loud (just like I like it). It has a 347 stroker with Flowmaster 40 series mufflers under the hood with a guestimated 400 horses inside. I ditched the C4 trans and went up to an AOD. The interior is all stock except for the gauges and steering wheel. The front of the car was race inspired with the "R" valance and fiberglass hood.The trunk was my idea, I had them build a box and carpet the entire thing. There is a void between the back seats and the trunk so we made a false compartment where I can keep cleaning supplies and keep the trunk empty, I relocated the battery back there and that came out great as well. I have only driven it about 15 miles so far. I am waiting on Hagerty Insurance to say I am covered then I will drive it like I stole it.

I primarily built it for cruising on the weekends and car shows but I WILL drive this car. It is not a trailer queen!

Here are the pics from-- as it was to as it sits in my garage anxiously awaiting me to burn off the tires!! :driver:

She's beautiful. :clap:

On a side note, does that unpainted door say "pinche migra" ? :laughing:

Yes it does. 2 years ago I asked DDR to sponsor a hole for our work golf tourny. The mustang shop had some fun with it and tagged it before bringing it to the golf course. We had two mustangs (before and after) in the restoration progress. Mine was obviously the BEFORE car.

NICE!!!!! :headbang1:

I started a 64.5 Mustang restore once. It was supposed to be my learning project. I had so much fun while I was learning how to sand and pull stuff apart, put it together, I wish it would have been finished, especially after seeing how gorgeous yours is!

Very nice Tim....If I guess what that plate says can i get a new B.P shirt? :ban-split:

Give it your best shot but you will be wrong.

I will be in Vegas from July 2-5. We can meet up for dinner and I think I can accomodate a shirt.

nice car ! does it have caltracs traction bars? checkout calvertracing.com

It's a cruiser car. I am sure it will make a few passes down a track but it was mainly put together to cruise on the weekends and take to car shows.
