Just About Every One Loves the Mustangs and We’ve Seen a Lot of Them in Our Classic and Muscle Car Restoration Shop in Florida



A Short History of the Ford Mustang 1967 Fastback

 

The highest grossing and expensive Ford Mustang 1967 Shelby GT is a one kind of special classic muscle car.

 

It was the redesign of the original model. The original, though achieved sales success, was due for an upgrade.

 

The major mechanical feature was to allow the installation of a big-block V88 engine. The fact was that the 427 cu in V8 under its hood was lifted from the very familiar Ford GT40. Few exterior changes like the concave taillights, side scoop etc were also being noticed.

 

Providing a high performance 335hp 390 cu in (6.45L) FE engine from the Ford Thunderbird the 67 Fastback Mustang was a force to compete with the other muscle cars of this era.

 

The 420 cu in (7.0L) Cobra jet engine which was officially rated at 335 hp were issued R codes on their VIN’s. After a horde of convertibles and hardtops, the designers presented the first concept car, Shelby GT which was an instant hit. T

 

he air-conditioning option was fully integrated into the dash.

 

The fastback model also offered the option of folding-seats. The 67 hardtop included upholstered quarter trim panels, carried over from 65-66 models.

Chevelle Muscle Car Restoration Specialists in Florida


Short History of the 1970 Chevelle

 

One of Chevrolets most successful nameplates, the Chevelle, was a medium sized car produced through the ’64 - ’78 model years. This car came in the four primary body shapes – Coupe, Sedan, Station Wagon and Convertible.

 

All of the shapes was manufactured as a 2 door/ 4 door variant. With the normal models, the SS or Super Sport versions were available throughout the ’73 model year.

 

The Laguna version progressed through ’73 – ’76 and after a short period, ‘El Camino’ was launched as a part of the Chevelle nameplate.

 

 

After ’78, the best in class Malibu succeeded this beauty for redesigned models. Such was the car’s appeal that leading magazines (Motor Trend, Speed and Supercar) found it groovy and a ‘Quiet Luxury’.

 

Its third generation models (Laguna) were even used in NASCAR races and with much success. The engine it sported was in between the 194 cu – 327 cu, with six cylinders and Small Block V8 pumping them.

 

A Big Block V8 of 396 cu was also produced. The Z16 version of this car was of the convertible frame and only limited number of such were manufactured. In year ’69 it was regarded as the most popular mid-sized car in USA.

Now coming to its selling point, the drive train and transmission was where these cars excelled.

 

They came with either – 327/302 cu in (5.4/5.0 L) in V8 engine or a 230 cu in (3.8L) a 6 cylinder engine. The transmission systems available were – Two speed Powerglide automatic, Four Speed manual, and ‘Turbo Hydra 350’/ Turbo 400 three speed automatic.

It does not matter if you are building a classic truck or a Chevy Camaro, the frame is one of the most important components of a great build. It is your ride and compromising with the chassis/frame would be a rookie mistake.

1970 Dodge challenger restoration

Build your ’70 Dodge Challenger at our muscle car restoration shop in Florida


 

The introduction of Dodge Challenger was Chrysler's response to the muscle car wars started with the Camaros and Mustangs.

 

 

The Second Generation of Challenger that was launched during '69 – '70 were meant to compete with the other luxurious muscle cars of the day - albeit a little late to the show.  With a long wheelbase at 110 inch, larger dimension, and luxurious interiors it was a bummer for its rivals.

 

See one of the old TV ads for the 1970 Challenger...

 

 



The Challenger was available as a 2 door hardtop coupe or a 2 door convertible. In our store, we offer the 1970 Challenger Coupe Steel Body Replacements.

The variation of engines ranged from a 198 cu (6 cylinder) to 440 cu (RB V8). In addition, it included Air condition and a Defogger. Over the years the Dodge Challenger sold over a 150,000 cars. In 1971 the Challenger also featured in the movie, Vanishing Point and the series Mannix (1973-74) which elevated its glamor at the top level.

The car has history participating in the Nationwide NASCAR series and also in other contests like the Trans Am.

It was manufactured throughout the model years ’63 – ’74. It was this car which shaped the upcoming American Muscle genre of cars.

 

The iconic short deck sported with a long hood still wins hearts when it cruises down the street. Inspired by the Ford Falcon, the Mustang was originally introduced in two versions, the Hardtop and the Convertible. In ’64, a Fastback version was produced.

 

 

 

The wheelbase of 108 in remained for some years while many changes were made in the start of ’65 model year as the upcoming models became hefty and powerful.The powertrain in this beast was available in the 170 cu – 289 cu segment with a 6 cylinder or V8 under the hood.

 

After a number of convertibles and hardtops, the designers presented the first concept car, Shelby GT which was an instant hit.

 

With an ever increasing cult status the ’68 Ford Mustang was even featured in the movie, Bullitt, starring Steve McQueen.

In the ’69 model, the width and height were increased and quad lamps were introduced. The 428 cu was bundled with a Cobra jet or Super Cobra jet V8, which made the performance enviable. Ford even made some special editions like the Twister specials.
