1967 Ford Custom 500 with a Coyote V8
This 1967 Ford Custom 500 was built by Schwartz Performance in Woodstock, Illinois. The company started by replacing the factory inline-six with a 5.0 L Coyote V8 using Ford Performance control pack/ECU and custom engine mounts. The engine features a custom 4-inch stainless air intake tube, Vintage Air Coyote serpentine drive system, custom stainless headers and exhaust. A T56 six-speed manual transmission with a Quicktime bellhousing sends power through a custom steel driveshaft to a Ford 9-inch rear end with TrueTrac LSD and 4.10 gears. The coupe rides on PMT front and rear sway bars, PMT rear control arms and ajustable panhard bar, and KYB shocks. A set of Wheel Smith wheels (15×7,15×9) cover Wilwood 12-inch rotors with 4-piston calipers in front and 11-inch rotors with 4-piston calipers in rear.

Not a lot to say other than . . .

I want it. My Dad had a 63 then a 65 Galaxie. I loved the sharp, angular lines but they did well when they on these.

That's a nice looking ride RS Logan. I'm trying to reassemble a 66 Custom 500. I've got the Spohn rear control arms and panhard rod and axle angle strut. I've rebuilt the 240 6 cylinder and put a Offenhauser 4 barrel intake and plan on a little 4 barrel holley to run it. I sure wish I could get it back from the body shop to reassemble stuff. My son would love the coyote V8. I've got a worn out 5.4 supercharged engine from a 02 Harley pick up he would love to put in it (after a serious rebuild). I just want to reassemble the car and drive it before I tear it down and make more changes.

That's all I know for now...
