  1. Welcome to the forum. I did the same conversion to my 69 Coupe. I used the T-5 trans out of a 1987 Mustang, purchased a new clutch pedal, had the pedal hanger converted to a roller bearing (much smother operation) & installed a Modern Driveline hydraulic clutch conversion kit, with a Hurst shifter. Here are links to the stuff I used on my conversion. https://www.moderndriveline.com/shop/shifter-accessories/shift-levers/hurst/shift-lever-hurst-chrome-classic-style-10x5-5x1-3/ https://www.moderndriveline.com/shop/hydraulic-clutch-kits/master-cylinders/ford-master/mustang-ford-master/69-70-mustang-cougar-hydraulic-clutch-master-kit/ https://www.moderndriveline.com/shop/pedals-and-clutch-linkage/clutch-pedals/ford-clutch-pedals/oe-ford-pedals/mustang-cougar/69-70-mustang-cougar-clutch-pedal/
  2. Mr. M welcome to the forum. Just leave the top down, problem solved.
  3. I am running 215/70R-14's in front & 225/70R-14's in the rear mounted on 68/69 GT styled steel wheels. My 69 Coupe has had the Arning/Shelby UCA drop performed, it has 1" lowering front coil springs, & 4.5 mid eye leaf springs in the rear.
  4. The one I got for my 69 Coupe was from Rockauto & it is a Motorcraft. https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=6586492&cc=1132399&jsn=569
  5. Welcome to the forum. NPD has one listed. https://www.npdlink.com/product/spacer-ignition-switch-bezel/168092?backurl=search%2Fproducts%3Fsearch_terms%3Dignition%2Bswitch%26top_parent%3D200001%26year%3D1969&year=1969 Virginia Classic Mustang shows it too. https://www.virginiaclassicmustang.com/69-IGNITION-SWITCH-BEZEL-SPACER-P50126.aspx
  6. Good job Vic, now that is progress.
  7. I am planning on building one for my 69 Coupe.
  8. IMHO The ideal tire/wheel size for these cars is probably 15" or 16". The larger the wheel & tire diameter size the sidewall of the tire is smaller making for a harsher/harder ride.
  9. I also got my suspension parts from Opentracker Racing, great people to deal with. I went with the 1" lowering performance front coil springs, street performance upper & lower control arms, & 4.5 mid eye rear leaf springs.
  10. I have rear drum brakes but I used a center mount parking brake handle from a 1987 Fox Mustang in my 69 Coupe w/aftermarket Lokar parking brake cables. Here are the cables I used. https://www.cjponyparts.com/lokar-rear-parking-brake-cables-black-universal-mustang-1964-1-2-1993/p/PBCR31/
  11. Buckeye, the Falcon is looking good. I have a couple questions, where did you get the teardrop hood for the Falcon, & is it fiberglass?, The rear package tray by the rear window is that a stock one you cut to fit around the roll bar or did you make it, if you made it what material did you use?.
  12. I got a new brake pedal and clutch pedal.
  13. I went from an auto trans to a T-5 in my 69 Coupe. I also used the hydraulic clutch kit from Modern Driveline.
  14. I converted to a 95A 3G alt on my 69 Coupe without any accessories except for the alt. I am using a single serpentine belt & use the alt to adjust the tension using the stock alt brackets.
