    I know some of you build some very fine custom MII`s. Can`t you post some pics to share them with the rest of us? Wouldt love to see creative ideas, turning old rides into hot sleighs.

    Mustang II owners are not the usual "factory restoration" Mustang owners...most have Some modification to them. :)

    I saw this car in CarCraft (May 2001) and then in person at the Mustang 40th Anniversary in Nashville in 2004. It was really good looking even if I would personally rather have some sort of bumper.

    There really are lots of MII customs starting with the Monroe Handler, Charlie Kemp's GT street car, and the Emmiss convertibles on the high end, down to backyard convertibles and pickups on the less expensive end.

    In a way, the CBII and KC were factory customs as they were almost completely appearance packages.

    wiking,
    you should check out our friend Francis's Daytona II project, his site is
    http://www3.telus.net/carstairs-cruisers/GT140/body.htm

    I'm not sure what you think of "custom" as but everyone has their own ideas.

    Mstang2 has built one of the nicest somewhat stock looking "street machine" custom IIs out there.
    Muskie's II is a very cool blend of new and classic old looks into one ride.
    Then there's Sal's monster, very clean in build and outragest in Pro Street design. His brother's II is wicked too.
    My goal with my II is a blend of shelby's 67-68 GTs, his cobra's and my own thoughts (however strange).

    Whatever the look is your after, I can't wait to see it.
    Anyway you look at it, the more nice and clean II's we put out to the public, the more II's we'll see if people like them and want one.

    I'll get down from the soap box now......

    Here's my version of what the II could have been had Ford let Ghia finish what it had started. (Yes, it's a soft-top convertible 304 4bbl 5spd manual trans.)

    Sal: I've got lots of better photos, but I can't seem to figure out how to post 'em. If I resize them to less than 80KB they get tiny. If you give me your email address, I'll send you some better pics.
