Sons 67 Mustang coupe

Recommended Posts

Starting on a build to replicate my sons first car, a 67 Mustang coupe. Got it at 16, still has it. He’s 31 now. I got the Motor City Resins coupe trans kit. It looks great. Started on the wheels. They are drag mags from the 60’s. I got some wheels from member 68 short fleet, Jason. I drilled out the windows like my sons. Need to finish paint aluminum. I do need the side vents as the donor I’m using had them glue bombed in. Can’t06096919-C6B3-4142-A0D9-C141359E5CF4.jpeg.f16b624a3664ec5ede88aacda0eceec3.jpeg retrieve them. One question, the resin kit includes interior panels, but the back parts lack detail. Any suggestions? I’ll try to keep up and post progress as I go.

It’s cool to build a replica of a family members car.  You may want to get a hold of a complete AMT fastback kit as a donor which should have whatever parts you need.  Typically the panels in the back area would only have a window crank and maybe an ashtray on one side.

Thanks. Yes, I have a complete Shelby GT-350, and a started fastback kit. The vent panels on the outside rear quarters are boogered up on the fastback.  None for the Shelby.

Slow progress. Deciding how to fill in gap between back seat and interior panel. Any suggestions? I'll be seeing the car this week and will take some pictures. I like the color of the exhaust header. It's appliance epoxy stainless steel.

Slow progress. Some pics of the chassis. Painted, weathered a bit. I made straps for the gas tank from left over pe fret. Also making exhaust tips from aluminum tube.

Fun project! I’m a sucker for family cars. Great idea using the PE fret for gas tank straps!

Little more of an update. Got the MCG detail set and added the door locks, gas cap, fender letters and horses. Built an auto shifter. Also made the rocker trim from evergreen and foil covered. Used the Molotow pen for chrome. Getting there. Am going to see him Friday, so need to get it done to surprise him.

Thanks guys. I am a slow builder. But, I'm still building, so that's a plus.
