71 Finally Painted


Recommended Posts

I believe this car needs traction control. Words cannot describe how fun it is to drive! Kirk would have loved this Mustang.

 

 

Well... to quote Commander Cody (look it up youngsters) "There's a whole lotta things I've never done, I ain't never had too much fun"

 

I can imagine this is real close. Kirk would have had fun with it.

It has been a while, so here are the updates.

The car drives very well. I got rid of the transponder keyless start and went back to a keyed ignition. The twin carbs are going away in favor of EFI. 8mpg on a good day. I am making a splined sway bar for the front. the original just doesnt have the correct geometry for the lowered ride height. The AC system is getting updated to servo motors instead of cables. The interior is getting LED lighting in the console, rear storage compartments, interior and exterior door handles, and trunk. I am also working on a carbon fiber front air dam.

Why haven’t I seen this car! I just stopped working and sat down for more than a half hour and went through the whole thread. Then I noticed the dates. I took a deep breath when I read about the owners passing. What a killer job your shop has done Mitch. It’s perfect!!

Thank you. It was fun to build. Yours is pretty impressive.
