1978 Mustang II

#2
I always liked the body style, maybe the front bumper needs a little tuck, but I can see it SPI red, with a stroked small block, and a face plated top loader...

No 4 speed may left knee can't take it. I'm thinking something different for me and not red.

Coyote ? Or, I wonder how long before the new Mustang EcoBoost motors will be available in crate form. That would be cool!

Yes it would but this is a budget build in a very short time.

Body looks descent from the pictures. You selling it or daily driver?
I plan on making it a daily driver but if somebody wanted it bad enough I would sell it.

The hood was sanded down to bare metal and all the old scoop holes welded.



It looked good before it was primed but it needs a lot of work



After a little block sanding and bodywork





I plan on using the Mach 1 scoop and once that comes in I will bolt it on and finish the bodywork. At this time the hood is low in front of the hole but the scoop should draw that up.

When I was in high school, I saved up a 1000 dollars from my first job. A girl I worked with had one of these that was white and said cobra down the sides in blue. I remember it had the snake on the fender. It was an awesome car. Dad said it was too much for a 16 year old kid. At the time I thought he was crazy, looking back he was right. I ended up with his new chevette, but I always wanted that car.

The only Mustang II I ever liked was the Roush and Gapp built "Sudden Death" car. I read Baskervilles article in Hot Rod about 200 times, it was great!

This must be a common rust problem with the design of the Mustang II fender brace. We had a lot of rust on one side but removed both and sandblasted them.



Starting to fabricate a new piece



After Brian finished he epoxy primed and fit it back on the fender and marked where he drilled out the factory spot welds. Next he will sand those spots to bare metal so he can weld.



Clamped in place ready to weld





Welds ground down and ready for epoxy primer.

Rusty,

I know this is a budget build daily driver but if you have to pull the tank, wouldn't that be a great time to install an in-tank pump to go with a reliable/tunable EFI?

I found a site that is selling FAST EZ EFI multi-port systems for less than $2,600 (http://www.efisupply.com/fast_ez_efi.htm). This is not the carb swap system. It includes "Billet throttle body w/ IAC and TPS, Multiport EFI manifold, fuel injectors, fuel rails, fuel pump/regulator system, EZ EFI ECU & programmer, Multiport EFI harness, Wideband O2 sensor, MAP, air temp and coolant temp sensors."
