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 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.
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. 🙂
