68 Coupé (a lot of work went into this one)
« on: August 08, 2009, 05:32:40 PM »
The car is about 95% finished. The vent windows will be replaced in the near future because the chrome is getting very old, and it's the only remaining original chrome on the car. Originally this mustang was a 6cyl straight 200ci, but I replaced that one with a revised 289 and a C4 automatic. The car was stripped down completely, with all bodywork restored, and treated against rust. Even the rear flanks were removed to get to the inner wheel houses. Then it was rebuilt with all new parts. (Except the vent windows)
I decided not to use an original color, because I wanted it to have it's own look.
I also left some emblems off the car, according to personal taste.

I'm 29 and I'm from Belgium, and ever since the first time I saw a mustang in Bullit,
I just had to have a mustang. The car originates in california.

I hope you all like what I did with it.

Yes she's a beauty and you should enter it for the photo contest of the month. And if as you seeing how you spell 68 coupé you should join the French section, we have a few members from Belgium and they are looking for more people to meet together. ;)
