Hello, I am a 22 year old Army Paratrooper with the 173rd Airborne, currently stationed in Italy. I have been working on a project 68’ Mustang ever since I was 16, when I bought the car with my own money. Due to the fact that I live in Italy – and my good but not amazing automotive knowledge – it has remained a project for the past 3 years that I’ve been in the military. It’s probably 10 man-hours time from being a driver (which I intend it to be…) but I simply don’t have the know-how to get those last few things finished!
What I’m desperately searching for is someone who is willing to work with me to get the darn thing on the road this winter! I’ll be coming home from December 17th to January 4th. I need more of a mentor than a worker… someone who’s strong in electrical and engine tuning, my weaknesses.
I’m definitely capable of doing the work if I know what I’m doing. Willing to pay for help, but I certainly don’t have $50-$70 an hour for a helper. If there’s someone out there who’s passionate about classic cars and / or the military and who’s willing to spend some time with me getting this beast on the road, I would be SO unbelievably grateful. Here are some details about the car:
1968 Mustang Coupe, originally 6cyl
Now has 429 CJ
Torque Thrust D Wheels, Yokohama tires
Body work done, some Shelby cues (side scoops, hood, lights, etc)
9” Moser rear end
31 spline axles
All-wheel disc brakes
Full 2 1/2” exhaust, h-pipe, Flowmaster 40’s
Custom long-tube headers
