Project "Sleeping Army"

I started Project "Sleeping Army" when I some how got the idea that I should build a project car in honor of the people who were or are in the armed forces. So I started to look for a project car and that is when "Sarge" from mypowerblock offered a 1966 Ford Mustang coupe. We then traded emails. Then I went to his place to look at the Mustang. After looking at it for a second time I made an offer and bought the Mustang. A few days later "Sarge" dropped the 'stang off and I started to take it… Continue

We have a 1969 Mach 1, 428 Super Cobra Jet engine out of a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1. It has four bolts per exhaust port. Its a true 428 Super Cobra Jet, All parts internally are TRW. The engine was modified back then and has a 850 double pump H***y carb. over size jets, Heads milled, 11 to1 compression, triple springs on valve springs, 520 lift on valves, 295 duration, crankshaft cut ten under, pistons 30,000 over sized, Edelbrock exhaust manifold, chrome valve covers. The engine is completely balanced, and has the long chrome oval air cleaner assembly with emblem. Has not been started since 1977 when my dad had a terrible accident. It needs to be looked at internally for some good TLC it had a Ford 4 speed top loader with the bigger shaft. He traded the trans in 1979 for three dirt bikes. But the motor is original from that era. I repeat it is not a knock off or a reman or a newer block, all motor is from that period of time. Looking to sell to a collector for original parts for there hot rods or other. Contact Jason at 702) 629-8515 looking for the right persons vehicle or toy, thanks email me at jasoninpahnv@yahoo.com

oh i see i think you should do the mustang II

are you replacing the shock tower or are you removing them to do a mustang II front suspension? if you are replacing the shock tower i would remove at least the strut and upper control arm. if you are going to keep your shock towers and keep the srtut set up thn go with TCP or Ron Morris or global west set up where they lower the upper control arm and inch for better ride quality. but the shock towers are pretty easy bro just abunch of spot welds to drill out. i would remove them and go with a mustang II setup bro

no problem another tip try not to drill all the way thru the spot welds on the window seal area on the cowl cover like i did
At 5:40pm on May 14, 2010, charles mehrten(MR. TUNA) said…
you mean the cowl cover? well drilled out about 75 spot welds!! and it came right out even though it wasnt that bad underneath i still need to get in there and strip it and paint it for the full on resto

Thanks for the comment, I have no doubt building a frame from scratch is quite an undertaking. It is an advantage to have a full frame car the start with. Not saying I won't try it, but there are alot of people building them to order also. Gotta watch the pennies you know. Nonetheless it is still cool you are doing that or have done it.
