Let’s face it, the Mustang II isn’t the coolest thing Ford ever built. And almost all the folks who love them only do because they were what they remember growing up, not because they were styling or performance icons. Don’t hate me for saying it, I’m not bagging on them, I’m just being truthful here. So when Dave chose to save this thing, and embrace it’s weird and ugly nature, we scratched our heads a bit but knew that he was going to get his mini-trucker or off-roader hat on to make it cool. He went mini-trucker and we can’t argue with the thought process. There are three videos below to show you the entire process to make this thing sit like a champ. We approve.
In an attempt to make one of the misfits of the car world cool I install custom air suspension to the front end. Watch the thought process, fabrication, and follow through.
It’s time to get the rear suspension of the mustang II done so that it lays on the ground just like the front does. David Feiburger invited me to the Duct Tape Drags and I can’t show up in something boring., So follow along as I cut out the old floor, build a rear subframe structure, and start figuring out how to 4 link and airbag this old unibody car.
It was time to make this Mustang II lay flat on the ground! Follow along as I design and fabricate a custom rear air bag suspension setup. This is very unconventional in form and has been controversial in the past and still is…. see if it works! Warning, I’m not and engineer, I am a backyard enthusiast. This is intended as a fun video that will show how to have fun and learn a few little fabrication tricks along the way.
