    3rd owner of car. Had it shipped to me from San Diego where it spent it's whole life. Arrived in very rough shape back in 2005. Spent over 2 years restoring it. Since reproduction parts are not made for the Mustang II's, it was a real challenge!

    Modifications

    While I know one shouldn't change from specs, I couldn't bring myself to keep it the orig. brown! Here are some pics of before resto.

    Have the orig. honey comb wheels, but they are 13" and small, so I went with the other set that came with the car when I bought it. (Easy to change back for car shows if needed.)

    Ended up dropping a new 302 in w/325 HP and added long headers (super TIGHT fit) and 4 BBL carb.

    Since nobody makes reproduction parts for the Mustang II's, I ended up obtaining 3 sets of used door panels. (Blue, Black and Red sets.) Since I wanted Tan, I used special spray chemical and then Tan paint specially made for interior changes like I was doing. Results were VERY GOOD! Everyone is amazed and nobody would have guessed panels were different color.

    As stated above, engine info.
