Actually what I'm planning on doing involves removing it all. Same with the rear rails.

It's a 3 year plan. This year is get the six running while doing the interior properly. Fixing little things outside of that. That's $6k.

Next year is a 9" rear and four link with coilovers, a front end 5 lug conversion and power disc brakes with new wheels and tires. Figure another 6k.

Then the following year is new front subframe with coilovers and Coyote swap.

Then it should be a fun car.

I don't like to work on cars during the summer. Just big winter projects. Summer is for enjoying the drive.

Lets see if that 3 year plan works out. It may rust away by that time. It is a Rustang after all.

Cool car. I had a 66 convertible up till last Christmas. I went in the shop and could hear it arguing with my Camaro. Sounded like a married couple. Seriously though, mine looked rust free, but had a ever so slight door sag. Ended up being the inner rocker support was rusted out all the way down. Looked great from the outside though. Doing what you are planning definitely support the car. The it together, totally different beast than a Camaro. I would cut a small inspection hole in the front of the rear wheel housing to look into the rocker. It is a easy cut/ fix. Cool car.

I'm pretty sure whoever did the body work on this thing did it right. The doors don't sag at all and it sounds solid when they close. I don't think I need to cut a hole in anywhere on this one.

but you're darn right about reinforcing it when I put in the missing pistons. It's going to need it or I'll tear it apart pretty quickly. I'm planning on tying the front and rear subframes together like the camaros get. I don't even know if they make a kit to do it but I figure anything can be done with enough square tubing and a welder.

I've had GM's, Fords, one Dodge, one Jeep, one BMW, a Nissan, a Lexus, and a Mini (some my wife's. Others mine). Never once have they fought each other.

....they've all fought me in the garage, though.

Maybe the problem is me and not the cars?

Trade the Coyote for a Godzilla. That BBF is a torque monster and looks old school too.

Somehow I don't think that's going to be an even trade....

I'm not too concerned about the looks. I'll jazz up the Coyote some. Might come up with some tricks to make it look more old-school even. I have an idea that I might play around with...

Or I'll just leave it with the covers on it as it is now. It's not an ugly engine by any means. Just really freaking big because of the DOHC design vs the LS's pushrod.
