A straight 6...you don't see that often in a Mustang model. Very cool.

Very nice Mustang! I like the 6 banger. I did a 66 with one a while back. Great finish on yours. The trunk looks good. Is the luggage rack scratch built? It's a nice touch.

Excellent job Tom! That's one good lookin' Mustang! Love that six banger, way to be different.
Good job on the trunk too. Very good replica of an average joe Pony Car. Very cool. B)

I likes this one very much. I have one on my to-do list but with the 289. So tell me more about the better '67 chassis vs. the '66. If its that much better, I'll follow your lead.

the 66 chassis is very generic...no shock towers , molded in detail that you would like to have separate drive train is much more accurate, and if your planning on doing a 289 car the engine from the 67 is much nicer in all aspects then the 66's... you will have to graft the engine bay from the 67 onto the 66's body, it is almost a direct fit with a little sheet styrene and some minor trimming ... i removed the center drive shaft hump from the 66 interior and trimmed it to fit over the 67's trans tunnel...

scale motorsports decals were used as the floor mat and to cover the spare tire cover that i believe comes in the 66 kit

The six is from Bandit resins and converted from his 170ci six and the trans is from MAD with modifications to make it have the High mount starter position, The Mad trans comes withe the later low mount starter position

Thanx guys for all your feeback

Beautiful model of a mainstream car. I'd wager Ford sold more 6 cyl Mustangs than V8s back in the day, this captures it perfectly. I love it!

Absolutely beautiful, Tom. The six makes it so much more unique, as well as the color and trim. Is that rack a kit part or did you make or scavenge that from somewhere else?
