Blue67coupe It's not going to be built anytime soon thats for sure. But couldn't pass up a good condition 351W block for $120. It's been bored 40 over and has been sonic tested and would have no problem going 60 over. So that's exactly what I plan to do with it. Going to start slowly piecing together parts for it and eventually get a nicely built 351 done. Also had my carpet come in the mail that I ordered.

Blue67coupe Not a whole lot has happened. However I finally got my back ordered parts in the mail and have already put them one.
First is the dash bezel and lenses.


It is a night and day difference over my old worn out assembly. Was a pain to do though considering my wires were a little stuck and I couldn't pull the dash far enough out to disconnect them. I had to disconnect everything from the small space behind the heater controls.

Next is a crappy cell phone picture for now. And my engine bay looks completely terrible :

I'm still periodically trying to find a motor. But keep tossing around different ideas.

And then hopefully here soon i'll be able to buy my welder and tackle the floor pan and sub frame connectors and then from there will be near carpet and eventually replacing my gas pedal. Also need to go over my brakes and fix the leak that is going on.

Dang that sucks, that looks a lot better than the junkyards I know of around here. And a lot better prices too. I'll still search my local ones but wish one of those was near me.

I nabbed one awhile back for about 150 (without core), this time I have an old 302 block for a core, I'm aiming to get another 351w short block for about $85.

Theres also a handful of mountineers with gt40 heads too.
I wish I lived closer then, I would gladly help each other out on repairs and whatnot. I'm a little ways away though being as how i'm in Dallas. I guess I need to check out one of the LKQ's near me. I have only been to one local junkyard and not only did they not have much they were also a little too steep on price. I guess I need to find out when one's near me plan on having sales and go motor hunting then. I always search craigslist but with no luck yet.

Blue67coupe Holy crap I just realized I had made a build thread. I was going to start one and then found this one. Sadly not a whole lot has happened since this has last been updated. Mainly just replacement parts or maintenance on my Roush. However I did get a lot of car parts for christmas (Most of which were presents to myself from me haha). I had even considered selling the Roush to put more time and money into this one. But as it sits this is the upcoming projects I have for it.


Also have a monte carlo bar and the new gauge bezel coming in, those were on back order. Then need to go pick up a welder as well for the floor pans and I bought sub frame connectors that aren't in the picture.

I plan to try and cut the valence to have the r style to it. I wasn't wanting to buy it in fiberglass so figured i'd try it with this one.


Then was bored one night and couldn't sleep so I started removing the a/c compressor and components since it's had a leak and hasn't worked in years anyways. Also putting new valve cover gaskets and fixing a lifter issue. Just haven't pulled out the dash unit yet



Also a few months ago the car started to have some really bad steering problems and badly needed and alignment. However it was all wore out and CJPonyParts was having a big sale so I got a really good deal on almost all the entire front suspension.




Car still looks the exact same for now though




This will stay a slow build i'm sure but i'm trying to buy more for it more often and will try to keep this updated more frequent. I'm also trying to track down a decent priced 351W. But it's not at the very top of the list of work right now. Just if I happen to find a good deal on one.

Thank you sir I had a blast driving it around and showing friends. Even better seeing people I knew driving and surprising them by pulling up next to them and rolling the window down

Blue67coupe Thanks, the Roush kit is actually my favorite. I paid $9,500 for this one. Mainly because KBB said a base GT would average around $8,200 and in my area they are still pretty much all around that price. So for a base and then to add on the bodykit, paint for the bodykit, the suspension, and interior would easily run me 4K over this one. And considering I could get a real Roush cheaper than to try and build a clone of some sort I jumped on it.

BA Mustang I almost bought a red Stage 2, just didn't want to spend $10,900. Kinda wish I did now Love the look of Roush.

Blue67coupe Thought I would update to say progress on the 67 is basically done for quite a while.
But here is a most recent picture


And this is where most of my money shall go now
Purchased (4/5/12) It's a 2003 Stage 2 Roush



Had it not even a full two days and decided to paint the grille for contrast


Playing around with photobucket editing



Full Roush interior with the comfiest seats i've ever sat in




Had some fun in a couple tunnels on the way home


Order the ROUSH letters for the windshield and the rear glass. Ordered them in matte black for a subtle stealth look. And eventually plan on going to the Roush spoiler but I like the Cobra one for now.
