The engine is up and running for our 67 Project. The engine will be EFI once installed in the car but my friend helping me build the engine is an old school Ford Tech from the 60s so we left it simple with a Holley setup for the initial start up.
Take a gander at the video, let us know your thoughts!
We have EFI! We will be running the Edelbrock E-Street EFI system for our 428 FE setup in the 67 project. We will post details of the install once we have the engine in the car.

Ought to make for a nice smooth running FE!
After the cutting in the paint of the Guardsman Blue, our Fastback project has gotten her 'roll back. We reinstalled the RRS Suspension and now we can start building out the engine bay. Our plan is to paint the rest of the Mustang once we get the engine bay is complete. This will help prevent any dings or dents in the fenders, etc... and once we install all the body pieces and paint, we would rather not be taking it back apart.
Also of note, StangNet has now moved into its new shop. We built a new building to house the project and many more and will be posting updates from there going forward.
Stay tuned for more updates! Spring is here and time to get rolling. The 428 engine will be hitting the running engine stand to be fired up soon!
Today we were finally able to get some Guardsman Blue on the 67. Pictures do NOT do this color justice.
We cut in the door jams, engine bay and underbody.
For the underbody we did a bedliner coating from Gravitex (UPol) and the sprayed on the blue then clear. The suspension, lines and driveline should pop!
Next we will be putting the suspension back on and starting on the engine bay. Stay tuned.
The 428 CJ is coming along.
This is an all Iron (Fe) setup. We have an original 69 428 block, CJ Crank and CJ Heads.
