My Ride In-Progress

Hey guys, been following the classic mustang forum for awhile and finally decide to chip in. Here's my 70 mustang fastback project. Bought it about 5 years ago when I was in high school and it was a true Iowa car (aka solid rust). Pretty much has all new sheet metal except the roof and the tranny tunnel (wish I was joking about that but I'm not). Running a 70 351 4 barrel cleveland bored .30 over all balanced with a mild street strip cam. Has a World class T5 out of a newer mustang as well as the 8.8 posi in the rear so she's got 4 wheel discs. Recently finished the headliner and window installation but i haven't had a chance to wash it. Currently working on getting the wiring in her so I can start her up for the first time in over 30 years. Never owned a muscle car before but my dad had a 73 Mach that he was working on before this which is why I got into loving stangs. Unfortunately he sold it before he ever got it running so my car has become our car. Can't wait to take her for her maiden voyage

Gorgeous! The stance is perfect, those rims look good on there too. Clevelands are bad *** engines. You have the 2v heads or 4v heads? Good luck and enjoy it.

We have the 4v heads on it. I keep hearing they're really awesome engines so I can't wait to see what it's got.
