The first-generation Mustang is an enduring classic but it was built using 50-year-old technology. These cars use antiquated equipment that includes drum brakes, breaker points ignition systems, and 14-inch steel wheels. The OEM running gear is obsolete by today’s standards but all of these Mustangs can turn into high-performance street machines that can compete with late-model Mustangs. While certain special-build and high-performance models should be preserved, many common V-8 Mustangs can be transformed into high-performance cars that rival the new cars of today. The Mustang can be upgraded and modified into a true driving machine by installing aftermarket suspension, steering, and driveline technology. Mustang expert and former Ford engineer Frank Bohanan explains how to perform simple and important bolt-on upgrades that radically increase performance. He explains the rationale and process of installing a crate engine, big high-performance brake kits, coil-over shocks, tubular A-arms, multi-link rear suspension, and many other projects that increase performance by leaps and bounds. From mild to wild, you are shown how to upgrade each component group in the car by stages according to budget and difficulty. These components include engine, transmission, rear differential, front suspension, rear suspension, steering, chassis, electrics, interior, tires, wheels, and more. By completing these procedures and product installs, you can complete an improved street car, a high-performance street car, or a street/track-day car. No other book provides the same level of information and instruction for transforming the first-generation Mustang into a car that performs with the best on the road today.

Since its introduction, America has been obsessed with the Mustang. As the first pony car, it embraced the American spirit and established itself as part of the culture. As the 1960s progressed, a formidable lineup of muscle Mustangs was created, including the GTs, Shelby GT350 and GT500, Mach 1, Boss 302, Boss 429, and others. But in that same time period, Ford also produced many more Mustang coupes, convertibles, and fastbacks. In fact, between 1964-1/2 and 1973, more than 2 million Mustangs were built. The affection and reverence for these cars has not faded but rather intensified over the decades. However, after 45+ years since these cars last rolled off the production line, many Mustangs are in dire need of a partial or complete restoration. Some require a second, third, or subsequent restoration. Author and proprietor of a Mustang restoration shop Dave Stribling takes you through each critical stage of Mustang restoration. He presents real-world restoration procedures and techniques so you can return your Mustang to its former glory. A thorough and comprehensive explanation is provided through step-by-step photographs with exceptionally detailed captions so an at-home restorer can complete the procedure quickly and confidently. One of the most challenging and labor-intensive aspects of restoration is metal work, so it's clearly and concisely covered. Chapters cover each major component group in the car, including engine rebuilding, transmission rebuilding, rear axles, and brakes, as well as restoring the interior, suspension, and electrical system. The Mustang is an American icon and the quintessential pony car and late became an industry-leading muscle car. Owners are dedicated to the preservation of these rare high-performance models as well as other more common models. In a classic car restoration, scale and variety of work can seem overwhelming, but Stribling's expert guidance takes out the guesswork and streamlines the process.

This book chronicles the reconstruction of a 1967 Mustang Coupe. The Coupe started as a plain, low value coupe. Time, gravity, weather, and use eventually caught up with the Coupe and it needed a serious make-over. The Coupe was converted from its existing 289 cubic inch, carbureted motor to a 5.0 fuel injected engine. At the same time, it was converted from an automatic to manual transmission (T-5) with overdrive. The reconstruction took 7 years (working on a part-time basis). Information is provided for reference only.

Over the last 40 years, millions of Chrysler, AMC, and Jeep vehicles have used these differentials, propelling these high-performance vehicles to victory on the street, in drag racing, and other applications. Chrysler used the Dana 60 and BorgWarner Sure-Grip high-performance differentials in the Challenger, Charger, Barracuda, Super Bee and many other renowned Chrysler muscle cars. These differentials have been tied to historic powerhouse engines, such as the Chrysler Magnum and Hemi V8s in stock car, drag racing, and other forms of racing, making history in the process. Jeep CJs and Cherokees have used the Dana 44 and AMC 20 and put these differentials under tremendous loads, which often requires frequent rebuilds. After years of use, these differentials require rebuilding, and of course aftermarket suppliers offer ring and pinion and other parts to upgrade these axles. In this Workbench series title, the focus is on the disassembly, inspection and step-by-step rebuild of the most popular high-performance differentials. Axles and differentials are not incredibly complex components, but there are some specific steps to follow for rebuilding, upgrading, and setting them up properly, and this book demystifies the process and explains it in detail. A book dedicated to the Dana, Sure-Grip, and AMC Jeep axles has never been published before, and Mopar, Jeep and AMC enthusiasts are hungry for this information. The Dana and AMC axles should remain in wide use into the foreseeable future, and therefore there will be a consistent demand for this information. This book will also feature extensive gear and application charts, so the reader is sure to select the correct gear ratio for a particular vehicle and application. Special coverage is therefore dedicated to ring and pinion gears. In addition selecting the best aftermarket and production axle shafts is covered as well as modifying and upgrading the differential housings.

The photos in this edition are black and white. Skylarks, GSXs, Grand Nationals, Rivieras, Gran Sports; the list of formidable performance Buicks is impressive. From the torque monsters of the 1960s to the high-flying Turbo models of the '80s, Buicks have a unique place in performance history. During the 1960s, when word of the mountains of torque supplied by the big-inch Buicks hit the street, nobody wanted to mess with them. Later, big-inch Buicks and the Hemi Chryslers went at it hammer and tongs in stock drag shootouts and in the pages of the popular musclecar magazines of the day. The wars between the Turbo Buicks and Mustang GTs in the 1980s were also legendary, as both cars responded so well to modifications. "How to Build Max-Performance Buick Engines" is the first performance engine book ever published on the Buick family of engines. This book covers everything from the Nailheads of the '50s and early '60s, to the later evolutions of the Buick V-8 through the '60s and '70s, through to the turbo V-6 models of the '70s and '80s. Veteran magazine writer and Buick owner Jefferson Bryant supplies the most up-to-date information on heads, blocks, cams, rotating assemblies, interchangeability, and oiling-system improvements and modifications, along with details on the best performance options available, avenues for aftermarket support, and so much more. Finally, the Buick camp gets the information they have been waiting for, and it's all right here in "How to Build Max-Performance Buick Engines."
