    Well guys here's the plan for the new car an will keep updates on here. The overall theme for the car is gonna be a 65 gt350 r on the outside with a pony interior on the inside with a few comforts that the Shelby's deleted. Basically going to be a Shelby that is also street friendly.
    Replace all rusted sheet metal
    Subframe connectors
    Disc brakes all around with vents in bumper an side scoops functional
    R code apron
    Shelby fiberglass hood
    Pony interior
    Custom autosound radio
    Roll bar
    Shelby dash tach
    Rebuild 289 or build a 5.0 full roller I have in the shop I have for it
    Edelbrock torker hi rise intake
    Holley 715 cfm carb
    Decent cam
    Possibly roller rockers
    Hooker headers
    Dizzy converted to hei
    Hi perf radiator
    T-10 tranny
    Keep the ford 8" in it. 3.73 and posi
    Wimbledon white with gaurdsman blue stripes
    All new suspension front an rear including 1" drop coils and Shelby drop with 2" reverse eye lowering springs in rear
    16x8 torque thrust rims
    I know I'm missing a lot of stuff but this will be the main direction. Basically it'll be a tastefully done Shelby tribute that from the outside an engine bay looks like a gt350r but inside will be nicer to accomadate every day driving.

    Here's a few pics

    It'll be a full restoration and the body is much worse than in pics. Previous owners tried to repair rust improperly. I'm budgeting around $2500 for new panels an patches to fix the rust and previous attempts correctly. Going to sandblast the whole car soon and then will be ordering a ton of parts :peace:

    so tonight i got after it. pulled the motor, tore the motor apart getting ready for machining and now tomorow gotta devise a plan to tackle all the rust. Going to have to replace all the inner fenders and front half of the front frame rails. Busy night but even got the shop cleaned up. im getting way to fast at dropping motors out of these early mustangs by myself haha.also if anyone knows anyone looking for a C4 tranny around the houston area I got one for sale
