I have a 1991 Ford Mustang Lx hatchback. It is a 5.0, and it has about 125 thousand miles on it. I am mulling over the idea of rebuilding it to my ideal Mustang.
First off I need a temp car, possibly a Geo Metro.
I want to strip the Mustang down to chassis, weld on a Corvette rear suspension, and weld on a independant front suspension from a 4x4. Thats right, my car will be 4wd.
After the appropriate support modifications it will be powder coated. For the transmission I will use either a
Tremec 5 speed, or a Richmond 5 speed. 4 wheel Willwood dual caliper disk brakes, 14-15’s in the front and 13-14’s in the back. A full-time 4 wheel drive transfer case.
Ill either rebuild the motor I have now, or get a 345 HP crate motor from Ford, and stick on twin turbos, the biggest headers I can fit on,3" pipes to some high-flow cats, to a pair of flowmaster 2 chambers.
Ill strip the interior and smooth it out with sheet metal, then dynamat it or a bedliner type material, bolt in a feul cell, and a full on racing rollcage.
I will weld all the seams on the body after re-painted and smoothed out, A functional wing, bolted or welded directly to the frame. High performance shocks/struts/springs.
A high quality air dam for the front, with matching ground effects. air scoops for all 4 brakes, a hood scoop( think subaru style) for the turbos. Aluminum racing seats with 5 point harness.
And of course a kick ass stereo, Alpine deck, Alpine DDDrive speakers, Alpine amps, and one 10 inch DDDrive sub.
Centerline Telstar rims with BFG G-force T/a’s, 8 inch fronts, and 12 inch rears. And of course, guages for everything.
Im sure Homer will enjoy this, maybe someone else will too.
Let me know if I forgot anything.
