Greetings from Belgium

Post #1 by ibaumans » Tue Feb 13, 2018 3:48 pm

Hello,

I am the proud owner of a 68 Coupe with the venerable 200 ci coupled to an auto trans.
It is as we call it a rolling project...she had a rough life and I slowly repair and upgrade her.
Her six is running great now, the C4 shifts well. A few upgrades are in the pipeline!!

regards

Ivan

Here is a pic when I first got to drive her....after a winter of welding , grinding, fixing brakes. I got a lot of help from my father, a retired aircraft tech.Image.
And the almost correct motor...

I have a "few" :wink: books on the mustang and of course the falcon performance manual!!!
