Default My new Mustang.

Everyone in my family, including my ex wife, has a Mustang, so I felt left out. I have been looking for a clean body to put the 351 Windsor I have sitting in the shop into, and finally found this one the other night.



[I[/I]

It is a 2000 V6 with a 5 speed, and that is coming out really soon. I am on the fence about putting another 5 speed in it or a C4, but I am going to use it as my daily driver when done, so a 5 speed might be more fun.

The nice thing is, my Sons have a bunch of Mustang cast offs from their cars that I can steal.....er, borrow, and get this one on the road pretty quick.

It is going to sit until I get the rpu done, because I am so close on that one.

Funny thing is, it has stainless headers and a Hurst shifter on it, so I don't think the little old lady I bought it from was the original owner.

Don

Nice score. Could the little old ladies grandson have been playing with it?

It looks like a really clean Mustang. Good find.

Hehe, I will keep the Caddy, but this will be my fun driver. Every time I walk past my two Son's Mach I and GT, it really made me want one. Plus, I had nothing to put the 351 in that I have had machined and that I have most of the parts for.

I needed another project like another hole in my head, but that little guy on my left shoulder got the best of me.

I think so. There were a couple of stickers in the back window (that I scraped off immediately). One read "Caution: May go sideways without warning !" and the other read " Let me guess: Drivers license and registration."

Looks like a nice clean car Don!

Will you be keeping it fuel injected, or going with a carburetor?

I would stick with the manual myself. If it's a fun driver and already set up that way, why not!


Oh, and that's too new
