69 Restomod (UK)

Recommended Posts

Good Evening all.

My name is Chris, I live in the U.K. and here is my plane Jane ‘69 mustang fastback.

plan is lightly restore it and a light restomod; 408 or 427, street or track front suspension, Subframe connectors, upgraded Leather interior,  led vintage air, A/c  Etc 

I bought it from Virginia to over here to the U.K. about 18 months ago, strip down has started.

I’ll post regular updates as work progresses

Chris

Quit stealing all our damn cars!  :)

Just pulling your chain. Welcome to the forum Chris. Nice work on the 70. But I'm with the others on the blue sky.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys, yes it’s hard to believe we do get sun in the U.K. on occasions.!

i live as far as south  as you can get in U.K. literally as close to `France as you can get across the English  channel, and we do get more sun here then rest of The U.K., which is saying a lot, lol.

How the hell did you lift that car high enough to get it on that rotisserie ?. The underseal seems to have done it's job, the floor looks very nice.

I bet he used the two post lift seen on first and second pictures in front of the rotisserie. :)

Update, started to take a closer look at Sheet  metal. In summary 3 main points;

1-inner fender pieces, LHD and RHS to replace as hood hinge fixings missing on both sides 

2-LHS frame rail, firewall and floor, find the odd pickle point, so cutting out floor.

less on RHS but going to cut that out when LHS done.

3-front rad core  support piece, nr RHS top bit crusty And looks like a small fender bender in past  so replacing whole unit with RHS inner fender panel as battery tray is rotten from below 

aside form that the car is solid.

getting parts in U.K. proving really difficult, having to order via  and circa  6 week delay and driving me mad eg global west subframe connectors ... joys of owning a US car over here in U.K.

Welcome to the forum! Is there some kind of special equipment on the car since it got 2 vacuum canisters? 

Thanks and it has A/c and Tilt Column, hence 2 canisters

Floor pans on both sides are now in and just doing some prep work on seat risers and the Global West subframe connectors, before welding them in.

I have a few days off next week, so hoping to get the welding finished, save for the front rad support.
