    I've been thinking about getting a fully restored/rebuilt off the frame Mustang. The advantage about living in the south is that there are classic mustang dealerships everywhere. I'm in college right now. Full time at work. Work is right next to school. Apt. will be right next to school and work. We're talking 10 miles max a day. So... Given a fully restored 65-69 Mustang with a few upgrades like oil pan, electric choke, ect. How reliable will these things be?

    ie. I own a supercharged rsx-s right now. I've done all the work myself. I know I'll be working on this thing, but how often?

    Also... How much do the coupes generally weigh vs. the fastbacks?

    i drive a 66 coupe right now with no power steering, or brakes and ac... its a bitch to drive everyday... but if u were to get a restored stang with these features u would be alright. My stang has a 289 with edelbrock manifold and 600 carb, with headmen headers. the car runs great. and has been very reliable to me... oh yeah, get urself the T-5 tranny conversion its well worth it.
