This one should be a whole lot easier to install since it does not have the supercharger and since i will be eliminating the shock towers. Lesson learned.

I finally got a chance to go to the shop and see the car. The bodywork is not as complete as the seller said it was, but that doesnt surprise me. It seems that everybody is very dishonest right now with the current economic situation.

Anyway, here are some pictures of the car. Overall, the panel fitment is very good. The rear of the doors, bumper, passenger fender, and headlamp panels will need some finishing work, but the majority of the bodywork is completed.

The underside is in outstanding shape. Unique Performance had finally figured out how to replace panels and weld when it came to the later cars. The first ones were pretty rough though.




Shot of the Roll bar and floor pans.



Roll bar welds and functional Brake Scoops. This car does not have the tubbed wheel wells, which is fine by me. I will still be able to run 275 tires and i can install a fold down rear seat.



Engine Compartment

I am going with a TCI front end so i can install a new 5.0 Modular motor and 6 speed transmission. I am going to have the body shop carefully cut out the towers so that i can put them up for sale. No need to throw a good pair of towers in trash if somebody can use them.

Rear End Assembly

The shop is going to start on welding in the special brackets for the TCP pushrod system and the subframe connectors tomorrow.

-TCP Pushrod Coilover System
-FAB 9 Housing
-Strange 31 splined Axles
-Detroit Locker 9" 3rd Member with 3.80 Gears
-PSE GT-40 Wheels with 245 Front and 275 Rear Tires





The parts Car sat outside for a while, which caused the wheels to take on a gold hue. I am going to need to find a way to restore them to their correct gray appearance.

I dropped off the hood today and the body shop was already going to town on the car.

Welding in the Brackets for the TCP Rear Pushrod Coilover system.









They also started the removal of the shock towers for the TCI Independent Front Suspension System that I ordered today.





67 Shelby hood with louvers. Hopefully it will clear the 5.0 motor.

During build #1 I thought you were a pretty cool guy. But now that we are in build #2, this little green guy on my shoulder called envy keeps telling me how much I should hate you.....

Shock Towers are out. New suspension should be here in 2-5 weeks.








Subframe Connectors are installed and ready to be welded in place.

Thanks badsupra!


So, I'm thinking no drip rails on this car. I just really do not like the way they look up close. At the factory, they would stuff the portion between the roof/window pillar and the drip rail full of seam sealer and then paint it. It's a pain in the arse to get it smooth. So, i think i am going to have the body shop slice them off. We shall see what funds are available after the rest of the work is completed.
Custom engine bay panels are going to be built was well. I just do not care for the look of the TCI panels bolted in place with the stock Mustang panels. Rough, smooth, rough looks a little funny. So, we are going all smooth.

Doors are fit.







TCP Pushrods suspension is fully installed.









They are going to start fitting the lower scoops next.

If anybody is interested in buying this car as either a shell or a full roller, please contact me.

Maybe. I picked up a fully painted one last week for really cheap and it will be better to move my time to that car. However, if i cant sell this one for what i have in it, then i will just build both and sell one later.

I just went by the shop and the TCI parts and the motor arrived this week.

The motor looks fantastic and now that i see it in person, i am really happy with my purchase.

Im impressed with the TCI components as well and they are also better looking in person than i expected.

Front Brake and spindle assembly. I'm going to remove the bare cast spindle and powder-coat it in a cast iron color.





Adjustable coilovers with adjustable shocks



Plain steel control arms. They only offered gloss or semi gloss black powdercoating from TCI and i would like to do them in a hammered gray finish to add some contrast. If you get too much black, a suspension system can look really boring.



Very nice welds on the control arms. Im going to flip the ball joints and then use the LH arm on the RH side and vice versa. By doing this, the car is only dropped 1" in the front end as opposed to 2. I prefer a space between the wheel well and the tire.





Power Steering Rack. I'm very happy to see that it is not painted black. I like the look of bare aluminum.



And the 5.0 Coyote engine
