This week we a nice little coupe come into us for a little of our own speciality in house detail service. The car was a little dull and needed a little TLC from our man. Yogi continues on his reconstruction of the ’69 Mach1 suspension.
Park & Pic
This ’67 Coupe with a proper engine in it is now with us. We don’t have the before and after pics of the detail, but we have a selection of the after and (err) even more after pics.
The ’69 Mach1 had the botched carb blank of rubbers ‘fitted’ and this is what it looked like. OK, might be partially hidden under the air filter but that is no excuse to be honest.
Yogi has re-routed the fuel line with the proper metal pipe and improved the look no end all very subtle stuff. Out with the old:
In with the new Yogi custom pipe work:
The running gear has had a beef up on the sway bar to our popular 1″ version.
The steering upgrade will be in shortly but first the brake servo was out, we are not sure (as this is written) if it’s to go back in again or not.
The new steering starts to go back in:
The rest of the running gear follows with springs, perches and shocks.
The owners will think this is a different car when they get back into her for the first drive!
A close friend and customer of our returned from the USA with this tankard which he donated to our Mustang memorabilia. Thanks to Gary W. for the item. We would love to know more about this item.
This pewter tankard was made in UK, sent to Geneva (possibly) and ended up in the States:
The dates don’t seem to tie up with anything specific, but if you take the USA date format it becomes 3-9-1966. Was this something to do with ’66 Le Mans win? Perhaps somebody could give some theories and let us know as we’re not sure. Currently the tankard resides on Adam’s desk in the main office holding a collection of pens, I’m pretty sure one of which is mine! 😀
