Fox-body 5.0 Mustang notchback - Calypso Coupe "first Impression" (project Mr YuK)
The Calypso Coupe project (aka: Mr YuK) the first time I rolled up to check
it out. The only thing that I knew about it was that it ran great, needed
some paint/body and interior. The basic direction that I'd like to go with
this is just get it tweaked in and tuned well on the Dyno with a couple additional
bolt-ons to it. maybe add some parasitic drag tricks like electric fans,
etc.... with a goal of around 280hp to the wheels. The car weighs in right
around 2,800lbs (with smog and A/C) and for decent summer cruising sake, I
will leave the A/C on it, lol, something I would never have done 10-20
years ago.... but I'm getting old, lol, and a nice long summer cruise in 90
degree weather with the A/C on would be nice I think, lol. I do plan to add
some new tires, some fat Drag Radials out back and a set of seats from an
early '00s Mustang as well
as new black carpet, just to clean up the inside some. Clean and touch up
the body/paint for now..... at some point in the future I will do the body
right, sand and block out the entire car and get ready for some new color.
Calypso? Not sure yet.... probably so because I keep getting yelled at for
considering changing the color, lol. Basically just a solid street cruiser
that can hold it's own with these late-model monsters running around, and
run consistent 12 second 1/4 miles at the strip! ....again, while cruising
back home with the A/C on, lol.

Mustang TMI One-Piece Coupe Headliner Kit Installation 1965-1968
If you're looking to replace the headliner in your classic Mustang, but want something a little
more modern, TMI's one-piece headliner is the perfect choice. The
high-quality uni-suede material will update and freshen the interior in the
'65 coupe, and this is exactly the look we're going for in our Weekend
Wrench project car.
To install, begin by removing the factory headliner, visors, rear seat,
quarter trim panels, and all the interior trim. TMI's headliner does not
require removal of the front and rear windshields like factory headliners,
neatly fitting underneath the seal between your windshields and the top of
the car. Then, remove the factory headliner rods.
Create a point of center for centering the TMI one-peice headliner in your
Mustang, and then clamp it
into place once it is inside. Then, secure the edge of the headliner
underneath the seal between both windshields and install the visors, rods,
and rear view mirror.
Start putting the interior back together, including the package tray and
windlace, and once everything is back into place, your installation is
finished. Total installation will take four to five hours.
