You would think it would be neat to be young again, and
have your dad own a really cool Mustang shop. You would always have the coolest cars on
campus, right? Well, yes, it's true in this case. A few years back, David wanted to build
a special car for his son Jeff. The result was Big Red, a 1965 coupe they restored from
the ground up. David and Jeff have done a lot of work to this Mustang, and there's still
work left to do, such as a future disc brake conversion!
Please take a few moments and check out Big Red's vital
statistics, and check back from time to time to see how it
changes in the future. Just like any Restomod Project, there's always something new to

This 1965 Coupe sports a Mayer Cowl Induction Hood,
Street Apron (w/front bumper usable), and Fiberglass Trunk and Fender Extensions with
Spoiler. David and Jeff chose a Candy Apple Red paint job and a Mustangs Plus stripe kit
for a nice accent.
David and Jeff put the Mustangs Plus 5 Leaf
Spring and Handling Kit on Big Red. This kit uses Mustangs
Plus 620 front coil springs and 1/4" polyurethane coil spring
insulators to lower the car 1" in the front and 1-1/2" in the rear. Combined
with the 16"x8" wheels give the car a low and lean look. You can get this look
for your Mustang too. Be sure to check out our parts department while you're visiting our
The 16"x8"Vintage 45 wheels and
225.50x16 tires really fill the wheel wells out nicely. Using this wheel is a nice
compliment to the Mustangs Plus Spring and Handling Kit.
In this picture you also get a nice view of the Cowl Induction
Hood. You gain almost three inches of clearance when you
use this hood which allows you to use taller manifolds and air cleaners than those that
came from the factory.
Underneath the hood is a 351 Windsor fully
tricked out with
Ford Motorsport chrome valve covers, a Russel Hose Dress
Up Kit, and a Ford Motorsport Underdrive Pulley Kit. Jeff installed a Chrome Curved Monte
Carlo Bar and Chrome Export Brace.
The exhaust consists of a Dr. Gas 2-1/2" system with the Dr. Gas Crossover and Spin
Trap Mufflers to reduce back
pressure and improve overall performance. The Spin Traps
also give this Mustang a deep, rich throaty sound as it cruises down the road.
To keep things cool, they installed a Wellbuilt four row radiator. This doubles the stock
cooling capabilities. As many of us have found out, the factory two row radiator just
doesn't always do the job!
