I'm thinking with an AMT '67 Mustang front clip and the remainder of the underbody from a '66 Pro Street Nova, I might be onto something.

Thoughts?

 

I think you're definitely onto something there Chuck! You may actually be lucky enough to retain the Nova's frame rails up front and just use the suspension pieces from the Mustang. If you have one, I would check the fit of the chassis from the Matt and Debbie Hay Thunderbird or the pro street Lincoln. They would get it down nice and low. So far, I've used the Thunderbird chassis under a '64 Fairlane, 49 Ford coupe and a '56 Ford Crown Victoria (unfinished) It's an easily adaptable chassis. Plus, it has all of the pro street parts needed and a nice Ford powertrain. BTW, did you ever finish the Olds pro streeter?

I kind of like the nose on the Falcon, so I would keep that and add the '67 Mustang's fastback to the Falcon's body.

In the middle doing the tedious work on my Licoln LSC engine and needed a break so I took some pics of the wip, figured that would give me a good reason to take that break. All comments welcome.

No- unfortunately that got crushed by a box falling off a shelf above my workbench when it was about 98% done. I'm planning on using what's left of it on another one, just not sure when.

Just a quick update on how the coronet is going. Work been slow due to school holidays but back to school next week cant wait. Wasn't happy with the fuel tank so have made up another and have made up the side panels for the trunk. Have also mocked up the battery and nos bottle in the trunk as-well just to see how everything fits. Have also decided on a change of rims to give it a more uniformed and modern look. Mocked up the dohc hemi to see how she looks and have added the scoop from the dick landy charger kit trying to keep it all mopar. Long weekend coming up so with a bit of luck will be able to give it a bit of paint if i can figure what colour scheme i will go for possibly black roof with white body. Cheers and thanks for looking.

Sorry to hear that Chuck. That was a nice looking model the last I saw of it.

 

I have the roll cage made on my Duster project. It's just a street style six point, nothing fancy. I'm not really happy with the bars up front,so I may change those. I'm almost ready to take it apart and start the primer and paint process.

65 looks good Steve. The stance you have so far is perfect.

Thanks guys for all of the positive responses to the 65 coronet, makes me want to finish it off but as they say patience is a virtue and hate rushing things. Cheers

You can build whatever you want..........as long as it fits the "street legal" theme of Pro Street.

Hi decided to add another build to the list while ideas for the coronet come to me. Started a 64 plymouth belvedere as a glue bomb, stripped paint and modified a 70 coronet pro street chassis. Going to use the original 426 with minor mods and stock body work and interior. Used the rims from the dodge daytona kit and parts box tyres Wanted the look of being original until you see the rear end. Cheers and thanks for looking.

Actually working on the Falcon!

F002_zps5ba77fbd-vi.jpg

As Roger (plowboy) suggested, I fit the '67 Mustang suspension to the Nova frame, after I'd ground off the Nova's engine mounts, lower control arm mounts, and the crossmember just behind the torque arm boxes. Worked great! I also had to slightly cut down the Nova chassis just behind the fuel cell, and remove the molded drivetrain hump to fit against the Falcon's interior tub.

 

Obviously there's still lots more to be sorted out, but it seems workable now!

It has a 5.5L V8 with a screw-type Supercharger.
