72 Vert - Coyote Install
I noticed the earlier post about a Mustang II suspension install interest in a 71 - 73. The thought came to mind on a project the shop that completed my car was working on. This is the install of a modern 5.0 Coyote motor in a 72 vert. It is a good project detail of what is involved in installing this modern powerplant in one of our cars. The link is below for your reading and watching enjoyment.


72 Mach 1 H-Code (Concourse driven restoration)
67 S-Code Factory GT with 4-Spd

68 Mercury Cyclone (Pro-Street project)
I just spent an hour looking at all the projects including yours very cool!
There are several McPhearson strut fron suspension conversions, that I think will be more approriate to the 71-73 chassis, Gateway, RRS, Maximum Motorsports. Closer to origional akerman track angles than the MII offerings. This swap is going to become more popular, and newer systems will become available.
I havent pulled the trigger on a particulat strut suspension. Still planning, as I havent found my Coyote donor yet, suspension hasen't become a critical issue.

460 , Edelbrock Performer carb. + intake , 204 / 214 cam , Pertronix Flamethrower 2 billet dizzy + coil , Crites long tubes , C6 .

IMO the money is better spent on a simple coil over front and then spend money on a Watts link rear with adjustable rear shocks. Our front geometry is fine compared to 65-70's, but the live rear axle needs the most help.
