A Swede fulfilling his muscle car dream!
I'm from Sweden, moved to Los Angeles 5 years ago. I have finally the chance of fulfilling my dream of having a vintage mustang!
I know how to work on engines but don't have a garage or tools needed to restore a car. My goal is to have a 1967 convertible,fully nut and bolt restoration, almost show car condition but will use it as a daily driver. So I will need a restoration shop to do the job.
Here is what I have in mind: Disc brakes all around, upgraded suspension, a newer injection engine. I've been thinking about a Ford Racing modular engine since I need a reliable, good mpg car and a 5 speed manual transmission. I will need a lot of suggestions from you guys so all help is apreciated since I've never done this before.
My budget is 50.000 dollars. Here is couple of questions to get things going:
Should i buy a restorable 1967, have it fully restored at a shop or should I buy the Dynacorn body and start from zero? Will the money be enough for what I have in mind? I've seen alot of restomod cars on the market but none are exactly the way I want them to be, wrong color, engine etc etc.
Any suggestions regarding which engine I should use?
thanks so much in advance!
