Classic Ford - - YOUR CARS -

Mar­tyn Loughran From: UK Car: 1969 Mus­tang You can’t a fa­ther-and-son project. Just ask Mar­tin: “I’ve re­cently bought a 1969 Mus­tang 5-litre v8 as a project for me and my son, Jack. He’s named it Project Pony, and it’s been part re­stored be­fore it was shipped over from the US, so the first thing is to fin­ish of some weld­ing it needs and then it will get un­der­sealed and sound damp­ened on the in­side be­fore in­te­rior is put back in — all with the help from Jack and my good friend, Dave Ra­m­age.

“Fu­ture plans are to keep the old-school look but add some al­loys and up­grade all the sus­pen­sion and brakes to give it the mod­ern feel. Also I’ve got an Edel­brock carb and chrome bits to fit to the en­gine along with var­i­ous other up­grades.”

It looks sound, but Mar­tyn reck­ons there’s a few weld­ing jobs plus some planned mods to do be­fore it can hit the road.

In­te­rior is al­ready sorted.

Car was re­cently im­ported from the US where it had a par­tial restora­tion.

Mar­tyn’s son, Jack is help­ing out with the re­build of Project Pony.
