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

Sounds like a fun project and the 60's Mustangs are my favorite.
Are you aware of the Falcon Performance Handbook? It is very helpful.

NEXT- direct mount 1.08 on D8 head, power brakes, rear limited slip, 3G, electric fan, electric upgrades, custom curved DSII, header, 31" tires

New guy? Get the Falcon Performance Handbook and Ford six high performance parts from https://vintageinlines.com

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!!!

And this how she looks now...apart from the extreme large tires and the missing fake airintake at the side...
