StangNet's Project 67

This is our progress build resource for our Fastback project.

  1. Original 428 Cobra Jet Crank

    MRaburn
    Yep... have had this for several years stored in the corner, had always thought it was a 390 crank. It's actually a 68 428 CobraJet crank. It mic'd out just fine at 10/20. Gonna have the journals polished and rock and roll. ;)

    I've got all the other parts found and needed to build a true FE Iron. An original block, crank and 428 CJ Heads.

    Now shopping for the cam.

  2. Color is Changin, Reface is on to start blocking #1

    MRaburn
    We finished getting all the gaps the way we wanted. Fitment has been done and now we have taken her back apart and will start finishing all the surfaces.. we started with UPOL Reface to block it down.

    Clean door jams! Removed the body seams and smoothed it out. Lower smooth C's are in too and you can see the clean look it presents.

  3. Working the Hood and Trunk area

    MRaburn
    We decided not to run signal lights in the cowl of the hood so we smoothed those off and got the factory hood latch installed and fitted. We also smoothed out all the seams in the trunk, in case we decide to show off the trunk and the stereo system.

  4. Removing the Cowl Vents

    MRaburn
    We are going with aftermarket A/C setup so with keeping the smooth look we opted to block out the cowl vents. Welding these up VERY slowly is the trick to keep any warping form happening, since we cannot get to the backside if we screw up!

    We cut the panels from steel and bent them to match the contours.

  5. CJ Pony Parts Smooth Lower C panels

    MRaburn
    We opted to keep the lines on this car all smooth. Having the inverted upper sail panels, we shopped for a solution to get smooth lower C panels, we did not want then vented, and CJ Pony Parts had exactly what were were looking for, these are stamped for a 67.
