Summer's car "rebuild".
Summer's 16th birthday present, 78 Mustang II Coupe.
She likes old cars, we didn't want anything with HP as a first car, plus not a "big" car either with C pillar blind spot. That little Mustang was about the only choice to find something dirt cheap, fixable and looks classic.
Nothing too fancy in the refreshing, this car will end up on a highschool parking lot.
Rebuild the little 2.3L engine, great on gas, 28-30 MPG on the highway. Block 60 over.
For maximum grip upgraded the 13" to Front 205/55R15, Rear 215/60R15 sitting on Basset D hole Wheels.
Primer sealer/filler/urethane paint is PPG. Yellow is 2010 Camaro single stage urethane. Clear coat is "Montana".
Muffler is Flomaster Super 44, no drone sounds ok, pretty quiet.

Ford Ranger 2.3 2300 - EFI Delete - Carb mod - 8 Plug head
The first ever carbed 8 plug 2300 head I've ever seen. Thanks to my buddy Zach for making this possible. The intake was all a guess as far as runner length and plenum size. I knew I was going for torque and MPG...so we tried to make the runners as long as we could...the rest is just what fit:). The carb is the Motocraft...Autolite 2100 (best carb ever made). Better than EFI if you ask me. Ford had it on lock down with patents untill EFI came out. So simple you could rebuild in the dark. Distributor is a billet procomp pro. Neep Hp plug wires. NGK plugs, 96' ranger headers, no cats just stock muffler, complete EFI removal. Ebay digital gauges, I used a cheap no name ebay fuel pump. The carb was used off a 1965 Mustang and rebuilt with a $16 kit. Thanks again Zach for the aluminum and fabbing skills:) I still cannot believe how good this thing runs. Thank god for 70's engineering:)
