Must See Mustang

19 November 2014 - 06:22 PM

OK, I come into work the other day and I find this parked in one of the bays. All I know is it was assembled by a shop in Indiana and they did a fantastic job. It's a 1969 Mustang on a 2008 Mustang chassis. This thing was gutted like a model car body and dropped onto a late model Mustang chassis. This car is not only fuel injected with a Tremec, but has ABS, air bags, and every creature comfort of a new car. The INTERIOR is all 2008!

 

It's in for minor suspension issues and some partial paint touch-up. Check it out…...

Shop Stuff

16 November 2014 - 06:27 PM

This car has been at the shop for a few years. Sometimes a customers cash flow suddenly gets redirected, or worst…. and cars sit in our storage unit. This one was returned to it's owner yesterday. 396-4speed-4:10 Posi. Fun car!

Big money build here. LS3-4 speed automatic-Rack & Pinion-Coil Overs-Custom Chassis. The owner has a slight issue with his right leg so we are adapting a hand-throttle on the steering wheel. We spliced-on the top portion of a late model Camaro steering column onto the Corvettes original base. This way we can use the Air Bag clock spring for the hand controls. Goind out for upholstery this week.

Not everything we do is a Hot Rod. We do restorations on the sublime too. Here's a 1960 Sunbeam Alpine. The Tigers had Ford 260 V-8's shoehorned in them.

We also do piece-meal detailing. Here the customer wanted his factory exhaust manifolds on his pristine `87 IROC-Z ceramic coated and polished, along with his intake plenum, runners, alternator, and emissions air injector tubes. Unfortunately he also installed an inexpensive set of chrome valve covers that will look like hell in no time….. and they were a project to get on.

Always something neat coming through the doors!

Here's the `69 Trans Am we have in for restoration. All the weird/impossible to find stuff is there, just everything else is shot…...

In the background you can see the KITT Knight Rider Firebird we have going together now also.

`68 Hemi under Glass

09 November 2014 - 10:28 AM

I'm undecided if I should build this box-stock, or if I should detail it. But either way, the body is soaking in Lake Castrol as I type this. I bought this kit yesterday at the LIARS Model Show cheap so it's getting built!

 

 

The box is totally roached and falling apart. The lid I'll save & hang on the wall in the hobby room.

As nice as that finish looks throughout the plastic bag it's really grainy and rough. Not to mention every mold line from 1968 is still there.

I plan on doing all the same body detailing modifications as I did on the replica of my car.

Look at that mold line on the sail panel!

BLUB-BLUB!

All the chrome parts popped-off the painted engine with my finger nail. About 3 minor bits are missing, easily replaced.

MrMike has the `66 covered, I got the `68. Anyone else wanna jump in?  :D
