New here

Hi guys, I recently picked up a clean 1967 GTA Fastback locally. Its rough around the edges, but Starts, runs, and stops okay. I'm very excited to dig into it and start fixing it up, she's going to be a beauty when all is said and done!

And here are some of the first projects I will be tackling:

1. Fuel line kinked (I think someone crushed it with a jack?)

Welcome, one of my favorites, mainly because you could put a big block in them. Of course with today's engines that is no longer required.

Thanks! Don't hold your breath though, I wasn't planning on buying this car for a few more years, so I spent all my fun money. This one popped up locally in driving condition, not falling apart and for a great price, so i had to snag it while i had the chance. The seller threw in a ton of parts, but I don't have the spare change for big projects for the time being.

And the deal I have with my wife is I complete all my non-car related projects before diving in to the Mustang.

Original...that's a tough question. The original paint was pebble beige, which I will not return it to. Unsure if the engine is original, but it runs well enough, I'm guessing it was at least rebuilt at some point if so, and I know the trans is not original.

In short, my opinion is since I'm not going to be going back to stock original, I can take some liberties within reason. I'm not looking to sell anytime soon, and although some purists might lynch me, I'm okay making some mods. But Ford did such a great job with these cars, there isn't much I would want to change.

Here is some of my vision: I kind of like the Shelby scoops someone put on it, but I have no interest in making it a Shelby clone. I think I would like the lower scoops more understated and molded to the body like Eleanor, but I wouldn't want a whole Eleanor body kit. The grille is from a 68 I think, so I don't feel bad taking a cue from the Bullitt car and going with a blacked out grille (I think that looks mean!). And since beige is out, how about a nice Shelby blue or DIB with grey stripes? Since its a factory GTA, lets improvise and put the GT side stripes on, but match the grey for a cohesive look (too much stripe???). The seller threw in a hood, so I wouldn't feel bad putting a tasteful hood scoop on to round out the look since I wouldn't have to cut up the GT hood (too much scoop???). Maybe for safety and comfort, upgrade to full-backed seats. It came equipped front the factory with power steering, power brakes and front disc, so for now, all I would do is keep those in working order...I can consider upgrading those and power train down the line if I am so inclined. The only non-bolt-on mod would be lower side scoops I think, but who knows.

Sorry for the long-winded response to a simple question!
