These type of OEM wheels
or the Torq Thrust style
commonly used back then? I like the Torq Thrust on a PC mod, but will be HARD to find large enough.
Here is a pic of the originalhttp://www.carmemories.com/cmem/Ford/Mu ... tangs/1965
Normally the center of the spokes is black - its a Fenton Design for a fake 10 spoke rim. That second one you posted was/is very popular (American Racing?)
I found a rim that was close to the orginal on the R/C site.
I'd also like to see a cobra style scoop on top as it's almost a signiture for Pony cars of the 60's. Now, the side scoops would be AWESOME if you could mold in the "C" channel somehow into the side, as that's also a signiture of a stang. How to do it? I dunno right off the bat.
You guys are giving so many ideas I might have to make TWO cases. The one for my father needs to be simple. I'd love to make another with side scoops - maybe to sell.
I also love the corral and think it should be used. Not really with the corral that came on the actual grill because they're huge (68's were the smallest I think), but making one for YOUR grill. Use a side emblem
and figure out an actual corral for it. Only the most hardcore will probably notice the pony running the wrong way...a test for the pony elite??
Yeah - not sure how to make one though. They make the fender horse going both directions
Scoops are going to be easy I think compared to grills
On that idea, fog lights spelled "GT", and if you want a GT, you'll have to have 'em. Fans are round...fans can have lights in them or behind them. Round fans come in many sizes
I am sure I could craft a few small fog lights - I would have to think about that.
All this could be pulled off with a squatty little case rather than the common tower style.
Thats a good idea to ponder, but the one for my father needs to be a tower.
If you really really really have some spare time, perhaps make the "cobra aircleaner" thing work as a HS lid or something. I think a little black ribbed oval pseudo-aircleaner would set that interior off!
I already was thinking about that - under the top scoop, over the 120mm fan. I just need a modded fan grill, a cut up K$N motofilter, and some metel parts from large soup cans. It won't llok like the shelby or cobra air clearners, but it willl look like a ford mustang one.
Hugger blue? I have some hugger orange, but you really have to love orange dude
For my dad I gotta stick with silver or white with red or blue detail.
