Upgrade That Six-Cylinder Mustang to V-8 Status.
One of our buddies here at the shop recently got his hands on a '64.5 Mustang convertible. Rangoon Red with a red interior--it's the sort of car many of us dream about each night. The red, combined with a white soft top, makes this one a real head-turner and, with a very early production number, the super-straight Mustang is a valuable car for sure. The original engine is a 200ci straight six, mated to a three-speed automatic transmission. We don't have anything against six-cylinder cars, but our friend is interested in V-8 power with a modern Overdrive transmission. He's been reading Mustang & Fords lately, so he's already interested in performance enhancement. If ever there were a car worth the effort needed to do a V-8 conversion, a red Mustang convertible certainly qualifies.
