The SN95 dash is as well and has a HUGE and HEAVY bar running from one side to the other. It wont be hard to make it work with the Classic as far as structure goes.
Now the S197 dash on the other hand, is not.
what this guy said^^ the sn95 dash is much stronger than the 67 dash and to boot the steel framewill be welded in. the 67 dash is about as structural as an empty beer can... i understand that the car needs all the help it can get as rigidity is not a hallmark of a classic mustang i will get some pictures on here. the project is actually coming along very well especially considering i have been blasted on every mustang site i have been on for even thinking of this blasphemy
to each his own. what im basically doing is trying to combine all my favorite elements of different mustangs through the years in a tasteful way. boss 302 front spindles and brakes, 67 coupe shell, sn95 interior, 9 inch with big discs, 91 5.0 with 93 cobra top end, 94gt t-5 transmission, ect, ect
the spindles are not standard parts. they use bigger bearings than standard parts. and you still have to open up the hole for a foxbody t5. the 94-95 trans has the shifter back farther and this is highly advantageous to not just me but anyone not wanting to have a huge 4speed style shift lever. also the 94-95 transmission has better synchros better blocker rings and a higher overdrive so i can cruise 70mph at 2000 rpm with my 3.70 gears. its pretty glorious. also could all future comments not assume im an idiot? that would be appriciated. im not saying i know everything or trying to be cocky but this is why i stopped posting here. just a bunch of people trying to drive anyone not like-minded out of the hobby
i will. im still working on finding the time to get it all in i have everything mocked up at the moment and in place. i still dont have truly up to date photos, and now i just need to figure out whether i want to weld the frame in or make the frame bolt in
To hell with the haters, JT. I think it looks good at the stage it is. And I for one think that's the best idea I've heard in a long time, combining all your favorite years/styles into one. (personally I woulda tried for a Terminator style engine setup. Or better yet a twin screw pushrod 'plant! Lol) but all joking aside, thumbs WAY up!!
Ive seen it done before and personally like the idea and look. I would love to see how he shortend the dash to fit it. I have a 95 console in mine that doesnt exactly fit perfect, i took a heat gun to it and made the upper end match the radio bezel of my 69. Either way it works for me. I hated not having an arm rest.
