I sold the Cyclone. I pulled out the tired 302 and c4 from Penny and installed a late model 302 with a monster trans AOD. I still need to get an alignment and take her to the muffler shop. She does sound pretty sweet with the flowmaster 40's, but I'm sure those will go, just need to figure out the ole dilemma of what sounds good with no drone.

I mostly fly below the radar, so most of you may not have noticed I was gone, but either way I'm glad to be back. Now let's see if I can upload a video of the recent transplant to Penny.

I bought a Mallory distributor stupid cheap from BB and he threw in a nearly new set of retractable seat belts for my 66 build. Thank you BB for the freebie on the seat belts. And if you guys haven't noticed in the swapmeet page, BB's got a heck of a fire sale going on!!

Factory option column was TILT-AWAY, not tilt, so avoid that.  It simply tilts to the right and up to make it easier to get in and out of the car.  Steering wheel driving position is not adjustable.

My factory 67 tilt away column is indeed adjustable for driving position.

I'll be there this evening too. If you see a guy wearing a grey shirt with Hot Rod Welding on the front say hi. Be sure to check out my neighbors red/white 60's truck with a 427 cammer and his blue 66 fairlane with a 427 side oiler.

Nice!! We don't see them here.
If thats a 92 engine, its from a T-bird, Mustangs used that intake in 94-95. Same one as I'm using.

Yup, I"m going to have to look over every restomod part on this car. Right now, I'm just going off what the seller has told me and it's not much to go on. The important part, it's a very solid and straight car and I just need to go thru everything and make it safe. I plan to make some changes in a couple of years, but for now I'm just going to enjoy driving it as it is. Who knows maybe I'll bring it to the bash this year.

Hate to be a spoiler but is that a Rambler American in the background?  There used to be a Hurst SC/Rambler In Austin in the early 70's with the 390.  Absolutely nothing in street trim could touch it. 

One seriously worked over 69 Mach 1 would match it.  The American flag painted between the tail lights is still a frequent memory.

It is a very nice rambler and according to the owner very faaaast.

Mustang II frontend?  I'm interested in the front support setup.  We need to do something similar...but heavier, I think...to the Falcon project which still has the stock suspension.

Very nice car.  Eons ago I had a friend with a red one.  Had the hottest 260 I ever saw in it.  This sort of stuff makes me wish I had kept the Fairlane project....Oh well.

BB
 

BB, It has a mustang II suspension of unkown origin as well as an 8.8 out of who knows what. I do know the axle tube is just under 3in, so it's not an exploder rear. Also, the rear calipers have surface rust... I figured they would be aluminum so who knows and there's no tag to help identify. Most of the restomodded stuff I'll have to investigate and figure out on my own because the previous owner that built the car died and the wife didn't have a clue.
I'm not crazy about the front end, but it will have to do for now. The BIG bonus on this cyclone, it appears to have all original panels and there is zero rust in all the places I've looked.

I picked up a new classic over the weekend, a 1964 Mercury Comet Cyclone. I've been looking for this specific year and model for about 6 months with not much luck until this past weekend. It's not a Ford, but she's in the Ford family and has a 1992 mustang drive train with the factory efi.
I'm slowly going thru the car to make sure she's safe. I've already eliminated 4 very potential fire hazards including 3 electrical shorts and a fuel leak. The top of the to do list in order to get it inspected includes installing a parking brake to the 8.8 rear end of unknown origin, replace the wiper motor and bleed the brakes. I still love my mustangs, but I wanted to change it up a bit and add a little variety in the stable.

I'm gathering parts for an FE build in a 67 mustang. I'm using a former boat engine that is loaded down with cast iron from the oil pan to the intake. So, I need the following parts:
bj and bk carbs for dual quad with linkage and fuel log
cj motor mounts (390 mounts might work)
cj headers
le mans valve covers
7qt aftermarket oil pan
aluminum heads
aluminum timing cover with pointer
water pump pulley
alternator brackets
427 flywheel for top loader
high torque fe starter
I'm sure I'll buy some of these parts new, like the aluminum heads, but you never know what someone might have laying around not being used.

Sounds like a nice trip BB. I actually enjoyed my solo trip back home from Wimberly. There's just something soulful about being out on the open road in your mustang by yourself.

Why not swap a 68 column into your 67. My Borgeson installation in my 68 was a snap with that column. Been working great for almost five years now.

Ron,
Do you have to cut the column tube down on the 67/68 Borgeson install, like you do on the earlier cars? I'm wanting to switch to Borgeson, but I have a 67 tilt away column with the rag joint and I really don't want to modify my column tube.

Welcome! 
MustangSteve is a great source of information should you need it.  Looks like a very solid project, should be a lot of fun and great memories created. Looks like you'll be replacing 90% of the floorpan, so I would seriously consider doing the one piece floorpan for a much cleaner look and way less welding.

TKO,
Does your 67 have a straight column, or a tilt away column? I've been considering switching my leaky factory power steering to the borgeson, but I'm not sure if the borgeson will work on a tilt away column.
