Nice job on the Mustang II - they do look good in black.

As long as you're making a few changes, try these on for size:

Just copy the image and reduce it to fit. That 1/25 scale license plate site is pretty good, but the fonts don't match - and since you had a good copy of the plate on Photobucket, I thought it might be fun to try to match it. Hope you can use 'em!

WOW! Very cool! I will use those. Thanks!

Looking good Scotty, very nice II!! it's like deja vu!!

I know I really regretted trading my 1st Cobra II for an '84 GT hatch. But I did manage to buy another great '77 black-n-gold Cobra II that I've now owned since 1987.

 

Scotty, we should do a build project in honor of the 50th anniversary coming up.

"50 years of the Mustang" would be better, don't want no Cameros or Challengers sneaking in!

 

I'm up for it. I've been looking for an excuse to built that '67 coupe I got from Motor City Resin Casters.

I have had Pinto's & Mustang II's since they first came out in '71, My first Mustang II was a '74 2.8 4 spd car, I had the 2.8 re-done by a local engine builder it was a super runner right at 350 horsepower, after the Mustang got sort of worn out on the body side I took the V-6 out & put it in a '74 Pinto runabout, the Pinto's were almost 1000 lbs. lighter, it was the best runner I had, I did build a '72 Runabout that had one of the high compression 302's in it with a C-4, & the V-6 was better to drive due to the weight balance, but the V-8 was most impressive as I kept the D50x13 rear tires on it. You could stand on the pedal at 70mph, & kick the tranny down to second & it would smoke the rear tires until either you ran out of balls or it got fast enough to shift. The V-6 had enough power that it would pull 7000 RPM's in 4th gear, no idea how fast that was as it ran out of speedo around 5500 rpm.

Good, that was bugging me as it looks like an off-roader.
