1973 "Pro-Touring" project - Creator


Recommended Posts

Hello guys!

 

I want to show what I am working on here in Denmark, this is a tread about how this 1973 mustang comes a live again.

 

My plan is to clean the body up, and do a lot of modifications to the body. The paint on this car will be awesome.

 

My plan is to upgrade the suspension with some good stuff and the steeringbox with new gear ratio and put some big brakes on it to. It's just about getting that modern feeling when you drive it. I want to add bigger wheels and tires too.

 

Engine and transmission will also be upgraded, maybe with a T5 transmission and a pumped 351W.

 

I think I will be working on this project for the next 2-3 years to have it on the road again.

 

But follow the tread and look at the pictures, it will explain everything you need to know.. :) Please ask if you have any questions!

 

Best regards from Denmark.. :)


The first thing I am working on is the rear end.. I will make my own rear corners so I can weld them into the body, to get it clean. The bumper will also be cleaned up, I'm closing the old holes from the bolts, and getting it closer to the body. The taillights will de bigger than the originals. Emblem holes will be closed and holes from the taillight panel.

 

New pictures will come soon :) Hope you like it

I hope so :-D It's good to hear, my idea was to do something new, instead of keeping the corners on the rear bumper like every one else does :-)

Oh yes, I can't wait! I had all my badge holes, taillight panel holes, and the antenna opening welded up as well. I like the clean look.

Looks like a project that will suit this model, I'm hoping for some more pictures soon!::goodjob::

 

I got a 72 with custom rear end myself, and is planning to do a lift of the rear for the 2015 season...:D

 

This is what my end looks like now:

Hello guys!

 

It's been a while since my last update here.. My brother had an accident half a year ago where he crashed his car and he has been building a new one and just finished it. So there was not much space to build my mustang when he was building his car, because there were parts all over the place!

 

The cars was out in the sun today so the garage could get a total makeover and here are a few shots of it..

 

The bare metal mustang is my dads 71' mach 1, which he also is restoring right now..

 

When I was'nt able to do anything, I sold my 302 engine and bought a 351w shortblock with a 393 stroker kit and some other parts and also made a deposit for a lay a way deal for a set of Bonspeed wheels!

 

The shortblock will arrive in the next week, I will post some pictures.. :-)

 

Cant wait to work on this car again!

Me to! It's the coolest mustang ever build, so why not try to make it even cooler? :-D

 

My plan is to upgrade the driveline, suspension and build the body as my first to do.. I think I will wait a couple of years with my plans about the Baer brakes, because it is becoming a little bit expensive this project. But then I have something to look forward to, instead of getting everything done at same time.. :-)


Here is a few pictures of that shortblock I'm waiting for, I will post some pictures when it arrive.. :-)

 

And a picture of the Bonspeed wheel I just signed me up for, danm they look nice.. They will be with brushed center and polished lip.. 19“x9“ in front and 19“ or 20“x11“ in back.. Cant wait for that day when everything is ready to put them on the car! :-)


Some of the parts I have waiting in boxes.

 

Brand new Milodon oil pan.

New torque starter.

New ARP 12 point bolts in polished stailess steal

New mirrors, the only thing you cant change to something else on these cars, they are so cool!

Here's the color the shortblock is going to be.. Really beautiful color in real life! It's mixed together by some different colors I had left from other things I've paintet in the past and think it ended up very well.. :-)

 

I mixed the color today and hope to paint the block in this weekend :-)

The shortblock is now paintet, I did in a couple of hours and I am happy with the result.. I like the gray metallic color, it gives it a more modern look I think.

 

Here are some pictures of before, with primer and with paint and clear on :-)

I think you could have painted it purple and it would still look great! :) I like the color.
