As i just register to this forum, let me my 69 coupe. I'm From belgium, and got a 1969 V8 302 Coupe Mustang. Lot’s of mods where applied to the car like, some goodies to the engine (will be replaced by a brand new 347 crate engine in september), T5 5 speed trans, a 0'' ford 3.55 (read end), 03 mach1 wheel (17”), line lock, cut outs, ... and more to come.

Let's go for some pictures.

Put all of those pictures in the June photo contest.  Your chances of winning will increase by more pictures.  Take some of the engine compartment and the interior as well.  Let's see lots of pictures of that beautiful beast.

All started in 2002, i bough this Mustang 69 coupe in Belgium. It's a DSO 90 (export), in fact the car was build in Belgium and sold to a football tem mmanager here, in belgium. In the late 70ies, he sold it to a man that alreadu got the same mustang (same 302 coupe, same color, etc.).

As i discovred it:






It was in pretty nice condition, but need some work to get on the road for long distance trip. So i made some modification.

Starting with renewal of the engine compartment, upgrading to a Edelbrock performer intake, edelbrock 650cfm carburator, Headmann long header, new alternator, water pump, radiator, ragulator, ... etc.

From this



to this

This is a fun thing guys.  There is no money or prizes involved.  It's a chance to really show off our cars on the net.  So, go ahead and post a ton of pictures of your ride.  I guarantee nobody is going to feel bad about posting their ride's pictures.  I have the ban stick handy for anyone who makes fun of another Mustanger's ride.  ;D I'll tell you what.  I have a plane Jane 1965 coupe, and I will post a bunch of pics of it.  It will show the work I have done, and the work yet to be completed if you will do the same.  Deal?

Thanks to the " MU Made in China Reproduction Seat Cover " ... I literally fought with that thing for hours and the result is the best that I could get.
