cool 69 302

Hello all, I just traded my 85 jeep cj7 for a 1969 mustang coupe! I am new to the 8 cylinder world and was curious as to extent can I build up the 302. Any links or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks, David

Re: 69 302

Welcome to the forums 169stang.

You can do heaps to the 302 windsor. Have a browse in the windsor section for ideas and post any questions you have.

Also, you got any pics of your coupe?

cool Re: 69 302

Thank you for the cozy welcome.
I do not have any pics yet. It is the same color as Thunder Kiss' beauty. Although, it's not a convertible It runs okay now. It needs a new front brake cylinder and some cosmetic work. My plan is to drive it for awhile and then begin a ground up restore. My son is 4yrs old so I have about 12 yrs to rebuild, with his help of course. I have so many questions about this car! So I'll just ask one for now and if anyone is ready for me, let me know. I can't locate the vin tab in the engine room. I've looked all over the firewall and fenders. Any suggestions? I seems that it would be more visible and am afraid it is no longer present. I appreciate your help and suggestions. One more thing, where do you buy replacement parts. There are tons online, just looking for the right one. Thanks to all, David

Re: 69 302

I thought the vin number was located near the shock tower on the LHS of the car.

As for parts - you're best off finding a supplier that suits your needs best; I use a local bloke, and I'm very happy with his prices and stock.

Re: 69 302

Hi there 169stang. The VIN should be on a plate on the dash veiwed through the windscreen or riveted to the rear face of the drivers door. The stamped number is usually on the inner gaurd or fender on the drivers side. Sometimes there is a little cut out in the outer gaurd along the bolt line where it is attached to the inner gaurd to veiw it but if not it may need the gaurd removed or I have seen them with a mirror and torch from under the front wheel arch.
