Our project “Biting the Bullitt” 1965 Mustang will be receiving a 1030 HP 427 CI Windsor-based small block Ford.
We wanted to switch to a modern suspension design for a safety and handling perspective while freeing up the engine bay so it would be much easier to service the tall deck, small block Ford.
The next task was to get the stock suspension out of the car.
TCI Engineering recommends cutting the springs (that is if you don’t plan to sell them) to quicken up the disassembly process.While a 351 Windsor motor will fit with a little massaging, changing spark plugs can turn into an all-day process. Don’t get us wrong: the Mustang has proven itself in both drag racing and road racing with the conventional suspension design, though technology advancements over the 45 years has made that design all but obsolete.Thanks to help from Total Cost Involved, Wilwood, ididit, and Grant – we are going to add some 21st century spark to our freshman-class Mustang.Additionally, TCI offers spring rates from 160 to 500 pounds, depending on your application. There are a few major manufacturers that produce a Mustang II front suspension conversion for the first generation Mustang and one of those highly regarded companies is Total Cost Involved.Based in Ontario, California, TCI Engineering manufactures a wide range of suspension components for classic muscle cars.This keeps you from having to cut a section out of the rail to clear the coil spring.” Installation First Starts at Removal With our kit done and back in our shop, it was now my turn to get the Mustang from the storage yard a few blocks over.
