I once owned a near-concourse '64 1/2Mustang 260 V8 vert. 

 

I like modern frames, suspensions, engine-trans, brakes, wiring, interior, EVERYTHING, except the exterior look of the classic car. 

 

260...the smallest V-8 there is...which can be worked* like crazy.

 

* Can take 390 heads (?)

A restored car is exactly the same as a car that was bought in 1955 and put in a garage.

 

C'mon man. that is not true.

 

Only the  factory  make a new car.

 Resto mod Javelin. Thing is sexy as hell and is packing 1000+hp with a hellcat 6.2 and a 4.5L Whipple intercooled supercharger

 

 

Now that is  a proper  resto mod!

I never tried to do anything with the 260 motor.  It was powerful enough for the '64 Mustang - standard wheels and tires, so anything more would have just spun the wheels more.  It had the original 4-on-the-floor.  FWIW, I kept the generator and sold it with the car.  I got exactly what I paid for it, 5 years and something like 30,000 miles later. However, I had to fix a lot on it too.  Stuff you would never have to fix on a modern car. 

 

If I ever get back into a "Classic", it will most certainly be a restomod.

Thinking about getting  one of these...  narrow body... F8 Green    probably  a Scat Pack...  the  Hellcats  are  just  too fast ( I cant believe I said that)   (can't keep tires on them!!)

If you can afford it and want it...there is nothing to think about.

 

Well you might wanna think about wrapping it around a pole.

 

Aren't those Hellcats...1,000 HP ?   Unless you are running track...nobody needs that much HP...it's a recipe for disaster.

I like the bullitt.. but I also like Eleanor’s hood. What is that called ? 

 

 

Its called ugly.   Bullit is an actual factory car, GT390.   Eleanor  is an old and busted  restomod custom from the ‘00s

 

That color, deep Highland Green is epic.   Factory is the best.

I can't picture a 4 speed in a 64 Mustang...just the automatics you had to push the buttons on both sides to get it in gear.

 

Here is a superbad Camaro just for you:
