Well I've waited until I actually have enough to talk about, but now I'm finally starting to make enough headway to post some stuff. What we have here is my "Katrina flood car" 89 notch that I have decided to go retro with and build a 69 mach1 tribute (of sorts). Plans are to use the 2v motor and Tremec 3650 I had out of a wrecked 02, keep it as old school simple as it would've/could've been i.e manual brakes/ manual rack/carburetor.... re do the interior in the mach1 upholstery that can be bought now, redo the aero front (slightly) and change out the tail lights;bumper;rear valance w/ new 1968 units. Put Mavromont 17 x 6.5 pony R's on front and 17 x 10's on the rear (after modifying the rear tubs to accomodate the special 7.2" backspacing) Use Nitto 215/50/17's on front and 285/50/17's on back then paint the thing white w/ a blacked out hood and Tail light panel and adding the commensurate 69 mach1 reflective stripe kit to the sides and rear. Ive modified the stock K member and fabbed a new trans mount. The engine is in the car and mounted. The interior is completely done, but unfortunately is mostly out of the car so I could fit the trans, wire up the necessary stuff in the dash, and cut my rear wheel tubs in half to add in the 1"1/4 extra width to accomodate the fat-assed tires. Once I get it running, I'll put the full interior back in and post those pics next. paint and body are way off, but here's what's done so far.
