Yesterday I finished constructing the drivers side sub frame connector, now I just need to weld it up.

Today I welded up the drivers side sub frame connector. Here are the l/s & r/s connectors.

The more I looked at the ignition box on the drivers side inner fender panel the more I did not like it there, so I made a bracket for it & mounted it behind the passengers side shock tower.

That looks too close to the header. I would recommend a location in front of the engine. Heat is not a good thing near electronics.

It is an optical illusion, the ignition box is 6-7" away from the headers. The headers nare down near the frame rail & the ignition box is up near the top of the shock tower.

Have any of you ever seen a Bench Seat in a Mustang ?
Maybe a '65 or '66 ?

Yes, I have seen a couple. 65/66 & I think a 69, both times was in a Coupe. It is very rare to see one.

I found one in a '66 Coupe, bolted in to my '67 Fastback GT.
Didn't think I would like it but it was and still is a great seat.
First and only one I've seen, still have what is left to it in the barn... was thinking about selling it but didn't know about pricing it; any ideas ?

Thx / Ltr

Pics would help determine a price.

Yup they would but I have none at the moment.
Will try to get some.
Seat isn't in good condition needs Seat Covers for sure.
We will see, thanks.

Since I have been getting comments about how close the ignition box is to the headers I moved it back to its original spot on the drivers side front inner fender panel. Now that the drive train is in & all hooked up it is time to turn my attention back to the wiring. I started hooking up the wiring from the Pertronix ignition box to the coil, distributor, temp sender, oil pressure sender, & the temp sender for the electric cooling fans. I also hooked up both heater hoses.

Man, you've got to love that Ford blue engine block with the aluminum intake and chrome valve covers.  I am lost in the 60's when it comes to things like that.  If I were to put a 302 in my truck, it would be clean and Ford blue, just like in your picture!

Love that one on the engine stand!  The contrast is just beautiful.  Nice work, Mike!

Since the new wiring harness in the Mustang can support up to a 120 amp alternator I upgraded the Mustang's charging system with a generation 3 (3G) alternator.

Thanks Guys. I have to weld in the sub frame connectors I made, run the fuel lines from the tank to the engine,  decide if I want to go with one of the aftermarket EFI kits, or use a carburetor, purchase a battery, purchase aftermarket gauges, finish wrapping the wiring harness, install complete exhaust system, & test all the systems. I would like to hear it run before the end of the year.

Today I installed the radiator, hooked up the cooling fans, & started hooking up the hoses.




With the radiator installed I have about 1" clearance between the water pump pulley bolts to the cooling fan shroud.

As long as you don't bust an engine mount, that one inch should be just fine.

Today was a rainy day so I could not do anything outside so I started wrapping the engine bay harness, & the harness where it runs in front of the radiator.
