Thank you for the compliment. My vision was to put those 71-73 Mustang haters to shame. I can't stand a follower, that's why I decided to build the 72. I've had a 66, a 68, too many sn95s and foxbody's to count. I love my 72 coupe the most because they are just plain different.

 

Most folks just follow what they read or see that's "popular." But not us, not folks here on this site. I've gotten many ideas and inspiration by reading what others have done or are doing now. Challenges faced and what was done to clear the hurdle.

 

This project got to where it is because of like minded people on this site. Enthusiasts such as myself, and for that I am thankful and grateful

She's finally done. I am proud of the end result. The color is Sonic Blue from a 2000 Cobra.

 

Next year i plan on swapping out that FMX for an AOD transmission.

 

 

Great job, Roland!

I can´t believe I haven´t replied to this yet. Anyway, here I am.

Great job!! That color and those wheels look great. Definitely one of the sharpest coupes I have ever seen.

And I love that LTD! I´m actually a little jealous about that one. :)

It's a Spectre Dual Air Intake I picked up from Summit Racing.

Very Nice, color is great too..... Question on your tire/rim size combo, how does it look from the side view?? I mean do the 20's in the rear make it higher in the back?

 

The wheels sit flush and give a slight rake to the stance

 

This is the set I went with

Wrapping up the last of the interior things that I wanted to do. I want a slightly modern look for the interior, but a stock look also. I wasn't going to spend alot of money to do it.

 

I wanted a custom look, but something that has a "tasteful" factory feel.... That's hard to do. I didn't want it to look like I got everything from Autozone.

 

My solution was to add just a hint of billet here, some LED lighting there, maybe an emblem or two, and wrap a few a few things in carbon fiber.

 

My wife and I made and wrapped a custom switch panel and shifter cover on the center console. We also wrapped the radio bezel and glove box door. She just finished the instrument cluster cover this afternoon. It's really subtle,and you can barely see carbon fiber unless you really you look at it.

 

We are doing the seats next. We redid them a few years ago with the standard covers. But to be honest they are boring. I just got some black suede in. We're going to bust the seats apart, and tear the centers out of the seats and replace with the suede. That should look pretty good....

 

I hope the judges give me a trophy next year, because I sure did try my best to make something that stands out from the crowd.....
