I read about a year ago about the guy who did the same swap in his 66 for his teenage daughter. I had a 66 coupe with a running i6 in it and the plan had been to do the swap myself but I didnt have any luck finding the right 2.3t engine for it. Figures..

Amazing I must have read your build threads a dozen times. I still plan to do the swap in the future, but I sold my 66 mustang in hopes of finding a engine-less 69 or 70 convertible. No luck so far! I couldn't live with myself if I ripped the heart out of a good whole matching car unless it was a sixer.

I almost did this to a 66 fastback I had several years before this one. The only reason I did not do it was work slowed down so much I had to sell something and I just finish restoring my Anglia and was racing it, I was not going to sell my metal 33 willys coupe I had bought a few years before, so the mustang had to go. The sad part is a few weeks after I sold it worked pick up. I wish I would have held onto it a little longer.

Car is loaded in the trailer and ready to head down to Portland first thing in the morning to set up. If you are in the Portland area on Saturday evening, stop by and say hi.
