AMT '67 Mustang Fastback-Close-04/15

Postby mustang1989 » Sun Jun 20, 2021 6:36 am

Yes it is true that I've got another Maverick build in the works but I just couldn't help myself when I saw AMT/ Round 2 come out with their newest re-pop of an old fave of mine. After this whole 262 build I've just about made my mind up that the next kit I'll be taking on will be the latest release of AMT's '67 Mustang by Round 2. The kit has alot going for it in the fact that there's updated decals, cleaner molds and pad printed tires.

and I managed to get a small PE fret for it as well..

I've been wanting to build one of these anyhow since I owned 3 different '67's . My last one was my favorite as it had a 351W with a 4spd and 3.55 gears and it just so happened to be the same Acapulco Blue that the fastback on the box top is. Fun car and I had a LOT of fun driving it through the years.

This is the only picture I can find of the engine as of right now and this is in car #2. A 351W from a '69 Mach 1 with 4 barrel heads, Comp Cams 280H cam, MSD Unilite Ignition and a Holley 650 Double Pumper. It also had 11:1 compression. Note to everybody out there that knows anything about cars. NEVER do that on the street. You're guaranteed to be plagued with detonation problems unless you run HIGH octane fuel all the time. (98 or better). This engine did make this car haul like a scaled assed ape though.

Wifey had a 70 302. It was a fun car.

The ‘70 models were good looking cars too. I had a ‘69 coupe for a very short time. Just a little 2 barrel on a 302 but it was still a zippy little car.

I really dislike jostling my Maverick build back a notch on the build list but this build has been calling my name for a very long time now.

Joe!

Beautiful car photos! That is one sweet ride. Do you miss them? Sometimes, most days, I think of my Dad’s Maverick all tricked out and the way that sucker flew and I wonder why I drive a Honda. It’s alright to be jostled. Go where your heart leads.

Gosh, that is a beautiful car. You don't have to explain yourself why you got another one. You just can't have too many.

Looking forward to it. I have the predecorated version, getting a repaint myself.

Watching Joe. Oh the fun foiling the trim on the front and rear ends. I'll be especially looking forward to that.
