66 mustang project car

Hey guys! Working on a 1966 mustang for my first car. I'd like some cool and new ideas for the car so I can steal the show when the Scarecrow Carshow comes this fall! Please, feel free to post any ideas you have and maybe you'll see it this coming fall. Thanks!

Sweet!
Welcome! Have any pics of this beast?

Wed be more than happy to help!
Were you looking more into keeping it resto/original or going for something completely new and more modern revitalization?

I want to modify it a bit because usually the judges aren't really picky about the modified category as they are with original. Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE original mustangs but I see myself having better luck in modified. And I have two videos of it. One (the first of the two videos) is on YouTube.com. Just type in Sally getting restored week 1 and click on the thumbnail of an old i6 engine. The other I will try to post here. Enjoy

Oh my God. Your accent. Win.

She's beautiful!
Are you looking to spend decent $$$ or more of a DIY project?

Haha thanks! I usually get a lot of hate for it ._. But it's mostly me doing ALL of it except for the paint. I plan to do this Shelby Cobra sort of blue with twin white stripes down the middle. I also have purchased a v8 302 5.0 and I will be receiving it in the next few weeks. Also wanting to get American Racing Torque-Thrust 16inch wheels. And my dad gave me an idea for the dash. He said it'll be unique and cool if I were to recover the dash with black saddle leather instead of the factory installed vinyl. I want to get feedback on that specific idea. What do you think?

Geez! Why would you get hate for that?! Its rad! Lol

Sweet! I'm so jealous.
Leather sounds interesting, especially if you did white stitching. Be sure to clean that engine bay up nice and pretty because its lookin pretty ratty for show! And when you get that 5.0 be sure to rake the V6 badges off as well
I'm excited! I really want to see where this goes, lemme think about some eye catching things for a classic, definitely want to go out there but not too far. I've got a lot of ideas for newer bodies but not sure if it will clash will the classic vibe. Hmm.. gotta think this one out!

I understand your point of view. I have seen people that have gone a bit too far and...yea but rest assured I'm just going to keep it a Mustang haha. One problem I'm having is finding a rear end for a v8 since the rear ends on mustangs with a factory v6 or i6 can't handle v8s.

That's a great deal!
No worries, mine was selling for 15k but I got it for under 10k
I was just curious because I really want to pick one up for my parents so they can show with me every week, trying to find some good deals is hard!

I've always been a fan of the simple and subtle looks in a car, not do much the flashy chrome stuff. A car that I absolutely love is this. http://www.mustangmonthly.com/featur...g/viewall.html

I bought Sally from a family that were the original owners. It was a huge bonus when I opened the glove box and found the papers from when it was bought. every single paper.

Yea, although its sad to say that Sally wasn't taking very well care of after the woman's husband died. It sat in their driveway for two years, never started. It also was parked under a tree so I had to buff 2 years worth of tree sap, pollen, and dirt for 2 weeks. but that's why she looks so clean now. She's gonna look amazing when she's repainted though
