AAAwsome looking car. Comprehensive restoration to be proud of. You may need to consider crowd control when showing. I love your red and black interior.  

Hey thanks man. After all the hard  work, I am looking forward to getting her out in public  and showing her off a little.

I'm in Brisbane. Australia. You would be heading into winter on your side of the world. what are winters like in Delaware?

A bit warmer on average than New York City, but not that much different. Delaware like other mid Atlantic east coast states, the seasons are a little warmer as you go south and cooler as you go north. In Delaware summers in July thru late Sept are 30 to 35 Celsius and winters between December and March are between -5 and 4 Celsius. We usually have a less than a foot of snow, but some years more and others hardly any. September thru October is the best time of year for temp and weather in DE. Spring starts in April. So there you have it.

So you should have 2 or 3 months to enjoy before the snow start to fall.

July 1987 I was in New York, New Jersey and Washington DC for a wedding and catch up with friends. I had been in Banff Canada for 6 months and couldn't believe how hot and humid it was in NY.

Brisbane have similar temps to you in summer, winters are 5 to 22 C with occasional frosts but none this year. Never snows here. So its mustang time all year round. When we are not in Covid lock down that is.

The Car show and cruise season ends here by November and does not start again until April. July 1987... I remember it well. I was in the midst of moving into a new home with two kids and a expecting wife. Anyway, I believe you are heading into the spring season there in Australia. Enjoy the warmer weather! Hopefully Covid does not prevent you from getting the mustang out on a road trip or two! Regards,

These are the only pics I can find of the Hyperspark coil bracket I made to mount it to the Edelbrock Air Gap intake. Unfortunately I don't have any pic when I was making it or the dimensions. My goal was to keep the coil horizontal and below the air cleaner base.

Looking the coil and bracket from the front of the engine  between the distributor and the Sanden AC compressor.

Your car looks and sounds great, congrats on the journey so far.  Hope you get her over the finish line and start enjoying the ride.

Thanks. I am very close to having it pass inspection road worthy. In DE cars newer than 1968 still need to pass emissions. Unbelievable!

Well, The car is essentially done. Although we all know that our cars are never ever really done! I do have a list of things I need to or want to change/fix or tweak.

I belong to the local Mustang & Fords club here in Delaware and we had our fall show sponsored by a Ford dealership in Newark Delaware, Porter Ford. It was a nice day and we had a great turnout. I took the car to the show where it made it's debut.  The car got a lot of attention and took home it's first trophy. The awards were based on spectator popular vote and a Dealers Choice award.

Rich, congrats. Really, the best part about finally finishing a high quality restoration like yours is to share the details about the build with the other car owners at the show.  It makes all the hard work worth it.

Nicely done.
