nice!

i have the interior decor group in my pony as well. my brother helped me acquire a console for the car, so i have to get the manual transmission plate for it as well as the woodgrain inserts for it. my steering wheel needs some repair, but that's to be expected.

the engine compartment needs some cleaning up. take off the valve covers and paint them! ;) the holley is a nice touch, as is the intake (what kind is it?).

good job!

james,

yes, i have a 1966 coupe. it is maroon with a black interior.

it has a 289 from my old '66. i also have a holley (4150)4-bbl double-pumper carb on it with 650cfm jets. if your carb is a 4150 or even a 4160, you can change the jets to run at 550cfm. even if it isn't, you may still be able to change the jets for the fuel flow you'd prefer. holley's are renowned for the ability to be customized, so you might not have to sell it.

hmm. a 289 bored to 302? doesn't sound right. it must be a 302 to begin with, because the stroke is different for the 302. they have the same bore as a 289.

yeah, i'm looking to finish up my resto on this car sometime this year. i need to pull the powertrain and begin rebuilding the motor. that will take the longest and it will give me plenty of time to get the bodywork done. i have to replace the fenders, hood, grille, and rear valance plus grab a set of new bumpers.

it's a lot of work, but that car is going to be sweet when i'm done! :D
