1973 Mach 1 Mustang Restoration - improved
A short video journey along the 18 months it took us to restore a bent and
rusting red wreck into a race car for the World's ultimate tarmac rally -
Targa Tasmania. This video is missing a lot, as you can imagine with a
complete restoration, but it does contain footage of the day we bought the
car right up to the recently completed Targa Wrest Point 2010 tarmac rally
- without a crash.
We need to recognise John Biggelaar (near Launceston) our amazing restorer,
and Warren and the boys at Gorringes (in North Hobart), who took on a
monumental mechanical task and succeeded. And of course my wife and kids
who have shown understanding, tolerance and passion.
65 Mustang Fastback Restoration Project
This is my 1965 Mustang
Fastback I rescued from a field rusting away. I finished it around July of
2008 in my back yard garage with no professional assistance at all. It took
me about 26 months to complete. It has a 302 Ford motor and an 5 Speed
manual transmission. I restored this car to the information on the original
data plate on the door that included the body color and interior. The
stripe is unique in that I added a darker red to the Poppy Red body color
to get a stripe that is a little darker but blends in with the factory
color. This car features four wheel disc brakes made from all Ford parts.

(Restoration of a 1967 Plymouth Barracuda) PROJECT FISH - PART 01
Outside of my airsoft hobby, I have this one. "Muscle" cars. Funny, in
THIS generation, it is called "muscle" cars..... Way back then, it was
just a car.....
Maybe this generation discerns the difference between "ricer", "rice
burner", "tuners", "classic car" and "muscle cars".
This is my friends 1967 Plymouth Barracuda. It will be a LOW COST,
ground-up restoration. No media blasting, not even sand blasting. Cannot
afford that "luxury". I will be using various ways to remove the old
paint, and spot checking for rust holes.
Part one is rust check and paint removal. As well as showing the small
block 340 that will go in the car affter we prep and paint the "engine
This is the first of MANY videos that will span the course of over one

Pony car fans, have we got a cool 'Stang for you! Restored, Presidents blue
paint, 4 speed, rebuilt 289 and NICE hardware throughout, this car drives
as well as it looks!! This car is a great cruiser with a good amount of
power. These cars are simply timeless.
It was born and raised in North Carolina, and spend the majority of its
life there. In 2003 it was purchased and shipped up to Michigan where the
total restoration began. It was taken down to bare metal, painted,
converted to a 289 4 speed, and stored in a heated garage. It was only
taken out on the nicest of days. The previous owner is a long time painter
and does body work for dealerships.
Check out the flawless paint on this Pony! The paint color is called
Presidents Blue, which is the original color this car came in. The paint is
just stunning, and is accented by beautiful white striping down the sides.
This Pony is straight as an arrow, with beautiful margins and super clean
lips and jambs. The chrome bumpers on both ends are clean, as are the
badges and trim pieces. Magnum 500 wheels and Cooper Cobra Radial G/T's
(2-15-70-15 front, 2-35-60-15 rear) sit at all four corners. The car's a
heap of fun to admire, but get behind the wheel for what really counts!
Look underneath, where a lot of time and money were spent. Bolted to the
289 is a 4 speed Top Loader transmission, a recently painted and balanced
driveshaft and a bulletproof, open Ford 8" rear end. You'll find a new gas
tank, rebuilt springs and new shocks out back. The floorboards have no
patches, no undercoating and no rust holes, and are covered in a nice coat
of flat black paint. The frame is solid and rust free as well. The drop
down panels and rockers are solid and rust free. Exhaust gases flow into the dual Exhaust system with Thrush mufflers and chrome
Exhaust tips. There are SSBC front
disc brakes with a brake proportioning valve. The steering gear is new,
there are new bolts and new sway bar links. Up front you can see that there
is a new starter, new motor mounts, new shocks, new bushings and new ball
joints. Nothing flashy, nothing silly...just well engineered, quality
components are under here!
Pop the hood -- a ton of time and care went in here, too. You'll find a
super clean and beautifully painted 289 with a Holley carb, with vacuum
secondaries and electric choke, and an Edelbrock aluminum intake. The
chrome air cleaner and fend aluminum valve covers add some eyeball to the
motor compartment. The rebuilt radiator has new hoses. The alternator has
also been rebuilt and sits above a stainless steel harmonic balancer. There
is a new fuel pump, new solenoid and new SSBC power Booster and master cylinder. Everything from
the hood hinges and the underside of the hood, to the core support and the
inner fenders, has a very nice paint job. The combination runs well, and it
looks great, too!
Inside, you'll find a comfortable place to spend some decent miles. The two
tone blue interior looks fantastic. You're holding on to a very cool, new
Hurst shifter. Everything from the dash to the carpet, headliner to the
seat covers looks great. This is one comfortable and clean Pony! Ready for
a road trip?
We just had a 442 very similar to this: Black, built drivetrain, clean
cosmetics and a no-nonsense, drive anywhere demeanor. It lasted a whole
FOUR DAYS before it found a new home. Don't get caught out on this one --
there's no end to the line of people wanting a proven street brawler with
looks like this one!
