    Too wide. Don't fit without extreme modification.

    As nice a shadow as that car is in I think I'd have a hard time hacking it up. Normally I'm all about restomod.

    Yeah I don't think a coyote wood fit.. Unless I switch to a mustang II suspension and remove the shock tower brace and shock tower panels. It's possible... Just not what i would wanna do. I'm thinking a 347 stroker down the line at some point.

    You can fit a big block easier than a coyote and have a lot more to work with. It all depends on how fast you want the car to be.

    Just don't see much in gas mileage out of the big block... I wouldn't do coyote those motors are crazy expensive... I'd leave it a 6 for now.

    Gas mileage and big blocks don't really go together, I agree. But then, I don't think anybody ever installed a big block for mileage either.

    I kinda agree... I like seeing the usual things like air cleaners, chrome pulleys and neatly tucked sparkplug wires. Not saying this wouldnt be a blast to drive.. this almost doesn't look real.

    That mustangs looking good, If I had a choice to swap in another mill I'd do the Ford 2.3 Turbo in there if it must stay Ford powered.

    So it's been a while.. Been really too cold to work in the garage till lately. So at any rate here we are with a few hours of work.. A few rusted bolts and a few strange hardware store bolts later.

    More of a restomod. She would be easier to go original. So rather than be anal about factory details. I'm gonna build this up to my likes. Not cutting corners just wanting to modernize everything that's available for these gen 1 mustangs.

    Thanks everyone. It's gonna be a long term project. So for now it's gonna be focus on the body. Get all the rust out and weld in new panels. Power train items and suspension stuff later.

    I'd settle for 8".. Haha I'm assuming you have a 289 with a 8" 5 lug?

    I was told on another forum these late model grills fit gen 1 mustangs with a little modification. I'm thinking on doing this grill in mine.

    yes, that is the setup i have

    the only bad thing about the grill you are thinking about is that those light impede airflow. This may not be a problem for a 6 but it was a problem when Shelby did it in 67 so the lights had to be moved outward. If you like these lights maybe you should just get the 65-66 gt lights. For your car they would not cost so much because you don't have to buy the horse and corral (takes a different one for 66). This will save over $100. The light bars and the parts you need will likely be less than $250
