65 Mustang 200ci 6 IL build:
This is where I was:


This is where I is:


I bought this car new in 1965 from Jim Sanders Ford in Houston Texas.
The salesman tried for 2 hours to get me to buy the V8.
I finally convinced him I could not afford the gas..

I should be getting my block back from the machine shop this Friday 3/Dec/10.
Then the fun part begins..

The motor:
Balance the rotating assembly
High performance balancer.
Deck Height 0.010
2.82 Rear Gear Ratio.
Clay Smith Hydraulic Cams 264/264 110 LC IVC 62º + 4º for 66º
Aluminum Cylinder Head
Aluminum Tri Carb Intake
C4 Transmission

Yella Terra Full Roller Rocker
Plasma-Moly Piston Rings
Dual Roller Timing Chain

DUI Ignition
Melling Oil Pump
Dual Out Stainless Steel Header
Alloy Valve Cover
3- 2v Weber Carbs
ARP Bolts

Number of Cylinders : 6
Bore : 3.72
Stroke: 3.126
Rod Length : 4.175
IVC: (62º+4º) 66º
Target Altitude : (1000 ft)

SCR 9.5:1
Effective stroke 2.45

If my money holds out, I should be finished around March 2011…
This build if for eye candy car shows and with a mild performance added..

I'm really looking forward to see this build progress. By the way its really refreshing to see an inline 6 2+2, one that hasn't been converted to a v8 at that. Give it the love it deserves. It looks awesome.

Its red, long, and comes with an 8 foot bed attached. Wanna come play with it?

Nice project. Please post pics of the engine when you are done. The build sounds very interesting. Any idea of the HP/TQ you are going to get out of your engine mods?

Countryboy_99.. That was my thUnking..
all the car shows I’ve been to all 65 Mustangs have v8’s.
haven’t seen one 65 FB.

So I thought the 65 FB’s needed to be represented and certainly one with a modified IL6…


still getting the hang of this site...

lcorriveau3 Thank you..
not to worry.. I have discovered the world of digital camera…

I spoke with the machine shop today and it looks like it will be Monday 6 Dec 10 before I get the block back…

I should end up with 222.46 HP
I’m not sure about the torque but I believe it should be around 260 @4500 ??

I may have to look at the torque converter for modified stall ??
I will leave the tires, rear-end and disk brakes to my grandson should he take the interest.
He’s only 9 now..

This build is strictly show for me.. even tho I live just about a mile or so from the drag strip…

Glad to see you are building the original L6 . Most people just snatch them out and drop in a V8 for whatever reason, not that I have anything against the 8's.

Dare to Differ: STAY INLINE

Echo - I am getting ready to undertake a similar project in my 66 convertible. Would love to pick your brain about a few things if you're willing.

You ant gonna believe dis..

My apologies for taking so long to get back here. I hate to admit this but I lost this address. It took me for ever to find.. O well stuff do happen..

So bigblacklab if you’re still there Pick Away…

Here is a vedio
I made you might find interesting…
Check out what is under and looking up…
I think you just might get a chuckle from it..

My original plan has changed some what…

ClassicInline does not know when they will have a Tri carb manifold ready for release.

The original idea behind this build was to add some EYE CANDY….
SO.. on to plan “B”…

Now I will use my log head and the Offenhauser manifold…
(EYE CANDY) + some mild performance….

I will be adding pictures as I go along……..

I'm new to the Mustang world, just bought a 67 hardtop 200ci.
Is there a legit way to put tension on the alt/fan belt? I snapped mine on the way home and put a new one on at Autozone but it squeaks like crazy. Also it seems to be affecting the performance, sometimes it will die going into 1st.
Solutions??

Yeah mine squealed too when I replaced mine. We had to take a breaker bar and stick it between the block and alternator. Then while pulling on it to push the alternator farther away, had someone tighten the bolt.

That did the trick! I was just worried there was a specific tension spec I was going to exceed but it's squeak-free now.

BTW Echo I'm pretty jealous of your spotless 200ci!
Where would I find an aluminum head? and how much do they run?

Well I’m finally back. Still waiting on a few parts. But this is what a
I wonder what it will look like ................ looks like..


Still have a lot of work left to do. But I’m on the down hill side… I have made some YouTube video showing what I have completed up to now..

But my favorite is the first 8 minutes of Part II…


If you watch this Keep this in mind there are lines from 4 movies.
1: (Also Known As) from Analyze This
2: (Smack Your Momma) from Smoky And The Bandit
3: (Belt Buckle) from My Cousin Vinny
4: (Mr Orange) from Reservoir Dogs
Mr Orange was the undercover cop that spoiled the jewel robbery that got everyone whacked..

And the uninvited reporter Walter Windshield, is from a famous reporter in the 40’s Walter Winchell..
I was fortunate enough to hear him when my dad would listen..

I didn’t think I would ever finish it. I would start laughing myself stupid and have to start over.. and over and over…

I will be back with more updates and a lot sooner now..

Well I dont know how I missed this. But if ya still need it:
Classic Inline Classic Inlines Performance Parts - Ford Inline Six Products
They run around 2 grand.

I had to use the log head because CI was not able to market an Aluminum Tri Crab manifold. My primary objective was Tri Carbs….

Well I shot 3 pushrods into the oil pan of the 200ci and swapped a 302 in it for less than $2k.

Do you have an estimate of HP/Torque ratings for your 200?
