1973 "Pro-Touring" project - Creator


Recommended Posts

Not any progress here. Creator were out licking some sun today, but I took her into the garage very fast again because she was freezing.. :D I am helping my dad with his Mach 1, the transmission are dripping with transmission fluid, so the trans are out and we are repairing it. After that I will start to make some progress again. I miss it a lot!

I read through this entire thread today, very nice work! What a cool concept while still keeping the look close to original. I'm looking forward to see what's next. Have you thought about shortening the front overhang like on the Pegasus car? That's one thing I really liked the proportion of.

Thanks a lot, I really appreciate to hear those things. Many things has changed by the time. Thanks I actually like a lot that you noticed that I’m mixing those two things together, original with a modern touch. The reason for doing that is because I think that this body style in 71-73 are so perfectly made from factory that I actually some times think that it’s difficult to make any changes to it, and maybe that’s one of my reasons for taking so long about it. But I work back and forth on it when I like too and some day it will be a complete car. Right now it’s a question of money and I’m trying to do what I can with out spending money. But soon I cant move forward with out spending a lot of money on engine, transmission, interior and so on. 

 

Yeah I got you, I really like how the shortened that front end, looks great man! But I have’nt decided yet what to do with the front end, have a couple of cool ideas in my head and I’m a little inspired by the 69 Mustang front end here with how the headlights are placed back in the front fender. But again still thinking about what to do :D

Got a little bit done today. Got the trunklid welded back together so it’s a complete trunklid again, so now the gap between the rear glass and trunklid fits very well again. Also got startet on the rear quarters with some filler to make them look a little bit smooth again :D

Finally got the hole closed for the lock in the trunk! And I’m playing around with an idea with a new attachment for the racing mirrors to make it look different and little more modern, what does people think about that? It can be a little hard to see from the pictures :D

Is the objective of the mirror mount to move them out to make them more useful?

Yes that was my idea, they are not much useful how they are in the original position. And then I just want to make the mount look better than then one it came with. I hope to make it possible to install the mirror from the inside so no screws are visible from the outside :D

A little bit of progress. Small steps, but just getting a little done is meaning a lot to me. Got startet on the metal pieces that will be on each side of the windshield to get rid

of the mouldings around it and to raise the windshield so it will be flush with the body. Cant wait to get this done. I used this piece of tool, first time I ever used it, what a nice piece of tool to shape the metal, love it :D

Removing the factory lead spots and got them welded up again, I need to do this so I can weld in the new pieces to make the frame around the windshield :D

Smart move buddy. Always thought the pillar was way too narrow. Nice glass fit.

Thanks buddy! I think it was an easy way to make the windshield flush instead of spending big dollars on custom glass. Me too and I really like that it is getting a little wider. Again thanks, cant wait to see it finished. Will continue tomorrow. I really wanted to cut of the drip rails and make them in a different way too, but it’s a problem here in Denmark to get them street legal sthat way as some of the strenght are placed there in unibody cars. I’ll try to make a cool drip rail moulding instead. 

 

Great to hear from you. How is your car coming along body?

I got the corners made for some time ago for the flush windshield. I’m trying once again to move forward on this project. There has been a lot of ups and downs the last couple of years. But I’m glad that I allways have this project to fall right back on. Hope to get it moving a little bit forward now. The dream of me behind the wheel are really something that I hope soon can become a reality. :)

Created a little piece for the headlights assembly today together with my 7 years old son. He cleaned the plate before we shaped it, he hammered some of the edge and drilled some of the holes. Very funny and it looks allmost as the original 😁

Got some of the assembly sandblasted, got some new parts also to install the headlights into. Now it just needs some primer and paint and then it can be installed.. 😁 Also got a little bit further with the plans for the Big Block engine project today, details will come soon 😁

Next project is to build this attachment point for the fender and headlights assembly. The old one had to many dents and was just to bad so I cut that out. Got started on building a new one. Hope to make it look like the other side as shown in the picture, but most important is that it’s fits, not the look, but I will make it looks as good as possible 😁

That's candies to my eyes!! Excellent work!

While looking at your current state, one thing comes to my mind...
Since you obviously go for a clean/shaved look for the engine bay, you won't want to see ugly things like the horn, wipers reservoir and of course want to hide the future harness and all electric components. The wire "snake" will need go somewhere to power them and the headlights, turn indicators  etc...
So looking at this last pict, i'm wondering if it would not be wise at this point to add a hole or at least reserve enough space for that before you paint (you don't want to disconnect everything every time to remove the fender). Also as you likely will not allow the wire bundle to go thru the engine bay, since you have closed the radiator support, what is your planned route? Some metal tubing on top of the aprons on the outside to support and protect it?
