Well, the 2006 Stang is fun but I missed my old coupe sooooo Much. Found one for sale locally for a decent price so I went to look at it. Looked good and the price was right.
Project "Hellraiser" has started and another DRAG coupe will be here shortly. Got it back to the shop, yanked the tired old 302 and AOD out and getting it ready for some front suspension and a new 392 CID windsor.

This one will be carbed and should get me in the 10's or hopefully High 9's on some juice at the weight it will be (2300 lbs.)

HEre are a few pics of it being taken apart and getting ready for some work!

Sounds like a cool project. Good luck on it. :thumbsup:
Is that the correct weight? 2300 lbs seems light for a Mustang.

the black coupe weighted in at 2460 with me in it and a full interior ( A/C box, 2 seats, stock full tank) this one will be gutted alot more.
Looking to get it right at 2300 with me in it and a full cell of fuel.

You know the red is Gone, Corbeau CR-1 for the driver and nothing for the passanger (maybe a Jaz seat.)

Maybe, Give me a call. I gotta get the new rear suspension on the silver car first though.
