Only slightly off-topic, but I thought this was kind of cool- a 1965 Mustang with a Ferguson four wheel drive conversion!

Seems like it would be a relatively easy conversion to replicate, and it would make quite a few people scratch their heads. B)

Really cool, like a Ford version of the Jensen FF (Ferguson Formula) Interceptor.

Jonathan: Pretty sure it's prime with body color overspray.

Tony: IDK...what does everyone else think? Post a bunch of built-earlier correct year Mustangs?

Looks like I will be adding one more kit to this build, just a auction for the bullitt kit on ebay

Sweet! I had one of those before the fire-hadn't started it yet,but i'll get around to getting another sooner or later. Speaking of Bullitts,as I'm in the final stretch of sub-assemblies and final assembly after that on the '08 Bullitt,I'll be cracking the box on the for-Nick '70 BOSS really soon and getting going on it. It's gunna be pretty much a box-art build,he digs the red and those modern Bullitt-looking wheels on it. Won't be too awful much extra detailing on this one (probly won't even BMF the trim,just chrome-silver paint it),as he's apt to want to "play" with it,LOL!

Here is the bullitt

And I did it again today, starting to paint it without doing the black base coat, so I am striping it right now

Edit- getting the engine done on the 69 KR ,

I recently stumbled on your website while searching for Mustang WIPs. I read through the 2005 - 2010 build thread and enjoyed it thoroughly. I think I have two kits that meet the criteria for that build but since I haven't built one of those yet I'm hesitant to join. This one however I'm fully versed in having owned several of the early 60's cars and have built several years and years ago. Just recently I found myself drawn to building cars again and just can't get enough of the Mustangs. If its ok I'd like to join your build.

Well seeing how I got the green flag to join this CBP here I go. This is just my second car build (second Mustang) so be easy. I'm going to be going for the KR-8 Super Stock Eliminator version.

And we're off and running. I decided to start with the 428 motor.

Here you can see the low rise intake with the distributor in place.

Posted Image


After a little saw work the intake was ready for the new distributor

Posted Image

Here is the new distributor and wires I had in my stash. I may go get a different set so that the wires don't get lost against the blue of the motor. We'll have to see what happens

Posted Image

Dry fit the distributor and wire set.

Posted Image

Motor assembled and painted Ford blue

Posted Image

Transmission painted steel, bell-housing is aluminum and of course the Ford blue engine.

Posted Image

More painting, this is the master cylinder and the brake booster.

Posted Image

I'm trying to get hold of a friend of mine who's been drag racing since the 70s with his Demon to help with some questions. I believe his car is in the same class that these KR-8s raced. My questions are, would they keep the brake booster and the power steering pump? Something tells me they do. If not I will have to remove the item in the picture with the red arrow. The green arrow is pointing out the Alternator

Posted Image

Dry fit the belts and components. I also sprayed the motor with a dull cote to tone it down a little

Posted Image

Thanks for looking

I have a question I would like to ask. I hope it's ok that I do it here. I figured since everyone here is knowledgeable on the early generation kits I could find the answer here. Of all the 65/ 66 Shelby kits available are the side scoops molded into the body or separate pieces? The reason I ask is because for a while now I've been toying with building one of the uber rare 66 GT350 convertibles. I figure I'd need to use a Shelby kit as a donor for such parts and would hate to have to butcher a body to get the scoops. If I can just steal the parts I could always re-build the donor car as a regular Mustang 2+2.

I've had several of the 65-66 kits, the gt350h and the gt350 in r and street versions have the scoops separate from the body.
