Hey guys came across this forum thought I'd drop in. Coming from a different side of things been into diesel performance since 2005, grew up around all Fords. Dad had a 70s Ranchero with 428. hoping to gain as much knowledge a and help as possible. To main topic I picked up a 69 Ford Mustang, had a 302 with 351 heads on it. She's gonna need some sheet metal its been sitting for the last 8years motor was running prior to removal. I've decide this build list so far opinions and options or adjustments would be great. Cowl doesn't leak any water into the floor board but drive side torque box is rusted thru. Floor pan seems pretty sold, may have to do B post small rust spot. Trunk area solid frame rails no holes. I have restore manual but nothing with alot of specs or exact pieces names. 351w 393 stroker IFS front ? brand ? CJpony or dynacorn body parts ? Rear Axle choices or setup ? I did decided to do basicly frame up gonna do as much metal as I can.
Hello everyone, New to the forum. A little about me: Recently retired from the USAF. Was a body mechanic but haven’t done that since I became a supervisor/manager. Originally from The Bronx and now live in Aviano, Italy. My dad always had Mustangs and I picked up the passion. We had a 73 convertible 302 which I learned to drive on and spent many o’days cleaning and working on it. That car was supposed to be mine, but he died several years ago and I lost the car to his gold-digging new wife of 1 year. (NY state law is criminal and immoral). Anyway, since my favorite mustang body style has always been the 69 fastback, I got one last year as a retirement present for myself/replacement for my loss. I now own a numbers matching 69 Mach 351W. It was in great shape and I’m currently making some mods/upgrades which should be complete next week. Happy to be here. I’m sure I’ll have lots of questions, but I’ll save those for later. Ciao! Sal
