I am now an official member of the fordsix family. In the past I have built chevy and mopar, but now I have recently purchased a 1965 Mustang with a 170 cu in I6 and I am looking forward to some Ford experience!! I bought this car for my son who is currently 14 so we have some time to do a few upgrades for safety and driver comforts before he starts driving this one. I have looked over some of the site and really appreciate the advice and tips that y'all have posted for us newbies!!

That is a real nice ride and your family will enjoy the experience. I have a couple of suggestions one is get a dual res master cylinder and look at options for the current steering shaft for safety.
And most important to get you up to speed quickly get a copy of the Falcon Performance Handbook which is a great resource for the Ford 144,170,200 and 250 owner. We all have one. The authors of the Handbook are on this forum and will help you with any questions as will the other members. See link below. Ask every question you can think of.
66 Bronco-1970 250, NV3550, DSII, 4 turn ps, uncut, 1" bl, 2.5" sl, front disc, twin stick D 20, 30 x 9.50
NEXT- direct mount 1.08 on D8 head, power brakes, rear limited slip, 3G, electric fan, electric upgrades, custom curved DSII, header, 31" tires

Welcome to the site! That's an excellent plan my father helped me work on my first car at 13, it was a great bonding experience that both of you will remember always. Good luck on your Mustang project.

I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good. My Ex- Fleet of Sixes these are all long gone! :bang: 1954 Customline 223 3 speed with O/D, 1963 Fairlane project drag car with BB6, 1977 Maverick 250 with C4, 1994 F-150 a 300 with 5 speed.
