    69 Mach 1 mustang restoration

    I started this one a little different. Came in as a complete car but not running and had not moved in 20 years. I rebuilt the entire drivetrain first. Fresh 351w with a lot of tricks inside to make a little HP, but had to look completely stock outside. I built the trans, brakes, and tackled the engine compartment restoration. Then stripped the rest of the car for a total restoration.

    Here's a few clips of the engine build. This car is nearly done and now waiting for exhaust to be complete. More soon on the body and interior stripping and repainting etc...

    You did a great job, Larry! Very nice. What are you going to do with it when you get the interior done? Sell or keep?

    Thanks Kahana,
    This is actually a friends car I did for his daughter. I did his Comet in another post. Actually that car is here doing the engine, wiring, interior and final assembly on that one.
    This mustang is now done, finished exhaust last weekend, interior is done etc..just haven't made those videos yet. It's something my wife started doing in her spare time playing around with a youtube channel she started, so she wanted to start documenting some of the work I do. Thought it would be neat to post in the classics section for a little flavor. I have a ton more she is working on.

    I'm actually partially restoring our 69 RS Z on the side in my spare time and documenting the whole process. It'll be the misses to drive when done. So there may be a few video's on that if she wants to.
