Maier Racing Mustang: More grip than a GT3? - /BIG MUSCLE
• Mike Maier
If you've ever driven a bone-stock mid-1960's Ford Mustang, then you know that these
little cars make wonderful cruisers. They possess movie-star good looks and
turn heads everywhere. Drive them hard though and you'll soon realize that
what lies beneath that sheet metal is usually in need of some serious
improvement . Mike Maier of Maier Racing is the owner of this stunning blue
1966 coupe, a car that was supposed to have been bought as a play toy for
him and his wife. However when you grow up in a racing family, leaving
things alone is generally not an option. Little by little the Mustang evolved away from the family
hot-rod and into a test bed for new parts. More importantly than that
though, it's now one of the baddest street 'Stangs on the planet. Most
people will tell you that "Bigger is always better"... one drive in the
Maier Racing '66 coupe however may make you rethink that statement
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.
My 1966 Mustang finally out of the garage.
Hello once again YouTubers, finally a long overdue update on the
restoration of my 1966 Mustang. It is up and running,
currently doing testing and tuning on the engine-timing, carbureator
adjustments, leak checks-so far so good!
The work is easier done with the hood off, not to mention it is awesome
running around with it off showing the sexy engine compartment :-) Big
items left on the "to-do" list (for this year anyhow) include wheels and
tires, and the Exhaust. There are some
small items left to do as well such as a few exterior emblems, and a fresh
set of traction bars.
For quicker reference on some of the engine and car specifications here is
a UPDATED semi-complete list...
347 "Streetfighter" stroker engine kit consisting of-Cast steel crankshaft,
SRS forged flat top pistons with wrist pins, CNC beam forged 5140 rods,
moly rings, CL77bearings. Next, a Crane cam, (gotta look up specs.)
Cleveland heads, Motorcraft high volume water pump, 7 quart oil pan,
ProComp HV oil pump with ARP pump drivshaft, 4 row radiator, electric
Flex-A-Lite cooling fan, Holley high volume mech. fuel pump at 7-8 lbs.,
ProComp polished "air-gap" medium rise dual plane intake manifold, ProComp
"tall-style" polished valve covers, Holley 650 carb., K&N air filter
assembly, MSD 6A ignition box, MSD distributor (mech. advance), MSD
"Blaster SS" coil, MSD "street fire" 8mm. wires, NGK "V-power" plugs,

1967 Mustang Fastback Restoration
Stopped working on this Fastback project when my youngest was born in 2007.
Time ( and Brenn starting school) is finally allowing me to get back to
work. This is a slide of the work done between the end of 2005 thru 2007.
It's now much father along, and I look forward to showing the next slide
