This sinister 1969 Mustang
pro-tourer is a take-no-prisoners muscle car which is ready to compete,
drive or race anytime and anywhere!
All of this Mustangs solid
panels were stripped to bare metal and thoroughly worked to transform it
from a nice piece of machinery into a trophy winning piece of art. Once
that canvas was as close to perfect as possible, and displayed excellent
fit and finish, a dynamic coat of Raven Black urethane was expertly
applied, sealed in a glossy clearcoat shell and buffed to a fantastic
Pull the pins on this awesome Mustangs solid steel hood and you'll
find an 800 horsepower, 557 cubic inch
Jon Kaase V8 which twists out 750 lb./ft. of torque and wears some of the
best aftermarket components on the planet. At the top of the engine, a
bright blue air cleaner feeds a chrome 1050cfm Holley carburetor through a
K&N reusable filter which sits just inside the cars fully functional hood
scoop. Below that carburetor, a silver powder coated Jon Kaase alloy intake
is bolted between Kaase Boss 9 aluminum heads which have been fitted with
silver powder coated "Boss 557" valve covers and finished with chrome K&N
crankcase breathers. Below those heads, 10.4 to 1 pistons combine with a
roller cam to create explosive combustion; and in front of those heads, a
reliable points distributor sends fire through blue Jon Kaase racing wires
which have been fitted with MSD end caps. At the sides of the block, custom
2.25 inch Metalcrafters ceramic coated headers send vaporized dinosaurs
into a brutal sounding Exhaust system.
And at the front of the block, a Billet Specialties Tru Trac serpentine
system spins a chrome alternator and a high performance aluminum water pump
behind a full array of billet pulleys and a proven Be Cool aluminum
Behind the big 557, a fresh Tremec TKO500 5-speed manual transmission turns
a traditional nine inch Ford rear end which has been equipped with a
Detroit Locker center section, a Fab 9 housing and seat bending 3.90 gears.
Holding that driveline off the ground is a Heidts front and rear suspension
which includes polished tubular control arms and polished tie rod ends up
front, polished coil over shocks at all four corners, and Raven Black sway
bars at both ends of the car. After Metalcrafters installed the suspension,
they stiffened the frame by grafting Heidts subframe connectors into the
floor; and fabricated a custom Exhaust
system which sends spent gases from a ceramic coated H-pipe to either
mufflers with ceramic coated tail pipes or electronically activated cut
outs. Step on the throttle and a polished fuel tank supplies gas to a
finned electric fuel pump and fresh stainless fuel lines. Step on the
brakes and four wheel electronically assisted Wilwood power discs provide
serious resistance for the serious motor. All that stop and go flows
through 15 inch chrome Magnum 500 wheels that are wrapped in 215/70 front
and 275/60 rear BF Goodrich Radial T/As.
Peer inside this awesome '69 Mustang and you'll find a black and
silver interior that is, like the rest of the car, an exceptional mix of
both vintage and modern pieces. The seats are thick units which wear
traditional Clarion Knit covers under two piece racing belts. And the
like-new dual cowl dash holds a custom silver instrument panel with a full
assortment of Auto Meter Phantom gauges above an MP3 compatible Sony Xplod
CD player. Below the dash, a custom black and silver center console,
courtesy of the guys at Metalcrafters, holds a traditional chrome Hurst
shifter between Auto Meter auxiliary gauges and switches for the cars power
windows. And above the seats, a heavy duty vinyl headliner hangs over a
solid Metalcrafters roll bar which runs from the kick panels all the way to
the rear hatch. In front of the driver, a chrome Grant GT steering wheel is
bolted to a tilt steering column which is complete with a billet aluminum
hub and billet stalks. And Behind the cockpit, Infinity Kappa speakers hang
over a custom upholstered trunk which displays a cool satin finished "Boss
Stunning to look at, thrilling to drive, and exceptional to show, this 1969
Mustang is a timeless
state-of-the-art pro tourer that will draw crowds for years! Call, click or

69 Mustang Restoration Slide Show.m4v
A short overview of my Mustang restoration. this is a
original 1969 Mach 1 with a 351W 2bbl. the add ons on this car are the
louvers, hood tach, disc brakes, better suspension. the original color of
the Mach 1 is silver jade and was repainted that way.
Mustang Front Suspension Installation Forgotten Fastback 1965
In this installation video, Bill demonstrates how to upgrade a front
suspension in CJ's 1965 Forgotten Fastback project car. Before the upgrade,
the Forgotten Fastback's suspension was beyond poor, with two 4x4s for
springs and several loose parts.
In order to make the Fastback a Mustang with modern updates, we've
decided to install a stock-style suspension with a few performance
upgrades, which will provide a better handling experience. For springs,
upper and lower control arms, and a strut rod kit, we've chosen top-quality
products from Scott Drake.
Mustang Scott Drake Coil
These springs allow your Classic Mustang to take advantage of the
latest suspension technology and perform more like a modern sports car.
They provide a fairly stock smooth ride during normal driving, but as the
springs compress under load (primarily during braking and cornering) they
progressively become firmer to offer the handling characteristics similar
to our 600 pound performance springs.
Mustang Scott Drake Lower
Control Arm Assembly 1965-1966:
These lower control arms are the finest available and feature the original
riveted design for a more authentic look. They are painted black and
natural steel gray and come with a ball joint, grease seal, a washer and
nut and a cotter key.
Mustang Scott Drake Upper
Control Arm Assembly 1965-1966:
These upper control arms are the finest reproductions available and are not
rebuilt, but rather all new. They're painted black and natural steel gray,
come ready to install, and include the bushings, ball joint, but with
cotter key and washers with locking nuts.

Mach1..it has been in several magazines now see it here on ScottieDTV!!!!
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.

This is a re-make of the original video. I had more time to include more
pictures and better narration....that and YouTube pulled the old one for

1969 Mustang "Anvil" Steve Strope Video Feature V8TV SEMA 2010
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Steve Strope and the crew at Pure Vision teamed
up with Anvil Auto to create a very trick 1969 Mustang to showcase Anvil's latest
carbon fiber Mustang parts,
and to go burn up road race tracks! The car features tons of road race
inspired elements, from a widened body to cantilevered suspension. The
giant John Kaase Boss 9 521 CID 805 HP motor under the hood makes things
happen, and the custom wheels grip the road. This is another PV creation
that takes a long time to digest!
