Four Ready To Go

The week we were back to mechanics pretty much full-time and only managed a little bit of work on the restoration projects we have on the go. These cars were all lined up waiting for their owners to collect them and we managed to grab a few nice pics before they were taken away.

Park & Pic Special

Ember Glow ’66 Coupe is a genuine GT option and a rare colour option. At the time it was not a popular colour, but now days is quite well sought after as a lot of the interiors were also two-tone.  This car was in for some cold start issues and a new battery.

The ’68 red convertible was in for some of our new Magnum 500 Alloy wheels. This particular style is popular because they are light, not as much upkeep as the chrome, still have the same look but just a little different from the rest. The new wheels warranted a full Geo setup and tune to get the best from the wheels and improve the handling. The raised white letter tyres matches the soft top fabric and our red centres matches the paint.

The ’67 v8 black convertible with deluxe interior was in for a little Mustang Maniac once over and then of for an MOT. This particular car is a real nice example of an untouched original car. 

The White ’66 Coupe was in for a little more work. The heads were to be replaced with our stock reconditioned heads. The pulleys were also cleaned and painted for a new fresh look.

The new ones were fitted after the paint had dried, then the new coated headers completed the clean engine look.

The rocker covers were replaced and the carb with a re-tune and timing just to be sure.

Once the engine was running again we then set about a little more cosmetic and suspension upgrades. The curved chrome Mote Carlo bar was a new edition to the engine bay, and an upgraded export brace to replace the standard shock tower braces. These changes not only look good but also make a big difference to the front end handling.

Another Testimonial:

One of our new customers picked up their car and took her home. We later received an email with lovely comment.

“First of all thank you for your hospitality and the rubber aerial seal and the keyring. The drive home was an absolute pleasure. I enjoyed driving the car before, now I LOVE IT. You and Alan definitely worked your magic on the Stang. You have transformed it from a good car to a great car.

I will be your life long loyal customer.”

Little emails like that makes us proud here at Mustang Maniac to know that the customer is happy with their car, and that they will get to enjoy it even more now. 🙂

Other News:

The 2018 model already being the most customizable Mustang ever, it also breaks new ground in personalization.

Ford is launching a new Personalize Your Pony experience on Facebook that allows Mustang fans to create their own iteration of the iconic emblem. They can then order clothing, mugs, phone cases and decals with their unique pony logo creation, and share the image with friends on social media channels. Enthusiasts can access a series of Mustang style packs – including variants from Shelby, Roush, Bullitt* and RTR Vehicles – and colors.

Ford will plaster the most popular pony designs across billboards in major North American cities this spring. If that is not bragging rights we don’t know what is!

Corey Holter, Ford car group marketing manager, said driving a Mustang has always been about standing apart from the crowd. “This is a chance for Mustang fans everywhere to make their very own personalized pony, then potentially have it shared where millions will be able to see it,” he said. Some fans will even be able to show off their creation with a customized grille badge for their own 2015 model year and newer Mustang.

What are you waiting for? Get over to Facebook and get busy.

    • There were no official RHD until the 2015 and the the ones that were RHD converted were outsource companies, some were better than others. During the 80s Ford Canada converted some 200 test cars to RHD, but we’re not classed a production run. Adam just happens to have one of those rare Ford conversion cars in his collection.


  1. Great blog as usual and the cars are fantastic. It’s really good to see the wide variation of work you do at MM..from restorations through to minor fettling and upkeep. I know how the drive FROM MM can be so much more pleasurable than the drive TO MM….anyone who has had the ‘mustang maniac magic’ would be lost without you!

    • Thanks Boris, we might just adopt your “Mustang Maniac Magic” comment. We aim to please and like to think that our customers return because they want to and not because they have to.
