Greeting from Washington State

Post #1 by Cash66 » Mon Aug 05, 2019 1:16 pm

Been a long time lurker and now finally made an account. I have a 1966 Ford Mustang, I6 200 and Automatic. Have owned the car since I was 16 (20 years now). It has been sitting the past 8 years, well because life and kids happen. But my wife and I are getting to a point in our lives where I am able to pay more attention and little bit of money here and there to get the ol Stang back up and running and on the road. My plan is to get up and running, and safe enough for the road. And then start to work towards getting it back to all original as I can.

Here is what I found on the data plate decoder:
Model Year: 1966
Body Style: 2-Door Hardtop, Standard Bucket Seats
Exterior Paint: Springtime Yellow
Interior Trim: Parchment Vinyl and Parchment Rosette Vinyl with Palomino
Date: 23 October, First Year
DSO: San Jose
Rear Axle: 2.83:1
Transmission: C-4 Automatic
Assembly Plant: San Jose, CA
Body Serial: 2-Door Hardtop
Engine: 200 1V
Unit #: 123331

So anyways, enough blabbing and pics of the car.

Welcome to the Ford Six site Cash66, that's a really straight Mustang in that condition it shouldn't be very hard to get back on the road again. Good luck on the restoration. :thumbup: :nod:

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.

I would like to go restoration. That's the plan anyways. Thinking I should go disc brakes all the way around, these drums are not fun. As for the rest, plan to back to original color and interior. I wanna go through the motor and possibly rebuild. Been looking at "Engine Blueprints by 6=8 Clifford Performance" as a template, also adding a mild street cam. Rebuild the transmission as well. Found a clip on YouTube and fell in love with the sound, so will go with the Clifford 6=8 combination (Weber 38/38 DGES Two barrel carb and Clifford header) to 2.5 inch dual flowmasters with H-pipe.

It looks like you have headers on it now. Do you know the details on those? If they are long tube Hooker headers those are pretty good headers. If you want some excellent info on various stages of performance mods get a copy of the Falcon Performance Handbook.

There is a header on it now but not sure what brand or model, it is long tube though. It came with the car when we got it 16 years ago. A few of the welds on the tube and flange have failed and developed holes. That's why I want to just replace it with a new one, peace of mind knowing its new and where it came from. Yup, I agree. Will be ordering the Falcon Performance Handbook here shortly.

Sounds like a good plan. I might be interested in those headers when you pull them off. Let me know when that happens.
