If the interior is changed and all brand new aftermarket parts, then it is no longer stock.....

Ah, damn you GT65Coupe!!!!
I thought that I was going to be the first to be the first on mp3car.com to have a carputer in a classic Mustang.
Currently, my coupe is going through a complete resto-modification. It will look mostly stock from the outside (with the exception of aftermarket rims) but the entire drivetrain and suspension will be upgraded. I already have the rearend, a custom built Ford 9" Detroit Tru-Trac with 3.73s and Wilwood racing disc brakes. The tranny is a Tremec TKO 5 speed and the engine is going to be a 351 stroked to a 393 for just under 500hp!!!
As for the carputer, well, I am keeping my plans a "secret". Let's just say you will be able to see the LCD but it is going to look stock. However, the dash is not going to be cut apart. As for the PC, it will be in the trunk and visible. However, the install will be a surprise and I have not seen anything like it here on mp3car.com.
This car is being built to be both driven and shown. Since it will appear at many shows, the install MUST look good and it will!!! The car should be on the road in the spring of '05!
I bought the car when I was 18 and drove it for about 2 years. It has been undergoing the restomod process for about 5 years now. While the pic isn't the best, he is what the car looked like before we began ripping it apart.
BTW, GT65Coupe...with it being a GT where are the fog lights on the horizontal bars within the grille? Did you opt to remove them? Also, GTs came with the 5 gauge insturment cluster and not the style that you have in your car.
By no means am I trying to flame you or your car. I am a HUGE Mustang fan to say the least you have a beautiful car. I am just interested in the history of your car.
As a classic Mustang owner, I am fully aware of how much these cars kick *** There is nothing wrong with replicas at all. I was just curious if it was an original GT or not.Originally Posted by GT65coupe
Knowing how much money that I am pouring into my car here in the States, I couldn't even imagine what it is costing you to ship parts overseas! I would imagine that you don't see to many classic Mustangs in London.
Once again, sweet ride and enjoy the hell out of it!
Had a few myself...well done!
