      70 Fastback Coyote Swap Project Kate

      Hey guys, new to this site and hoping to learn a few tricks to help with my build. Do's and Don'ts.



      I have wanted a 70 fastback for most of my life. This year I bought a 70 Boss 302, (Clone) from a company in Tenessee. It came with a 351c and c-4 and it was pretty worn out. After exploring rebuilding it I decided to go all in and coyote swap it. I had already started modding it with 6 Piston wilwood up fron and 4 in the rear, lowered it, QA1 adjustable shocks, tires and wheels, etc. Most of it I couldn't use with the coyote swap.

      i went with Mustangs to fear IFS system up front with Wilwoods. Tanks Efi fuel tank, in tank pump, fuel labs regulator and filters, and a hist of other stuff. As I started tearing into it I found plenty of rust from the PO "repair" so O am slowly taking care of that.

      Lookimg forward to putting stuff on vs. taking it off.

      Before I started:

      Finally some good news. Got the passenger side floor pans out and the passenger side torque boxes are a little pitted but ok. Spent a few hours test fitting the toe boards and passenger side floor pan. Almost ready to weld it all in,

      Finally pulled the doors off to start the process of replacing the Lower A pillars once they ship. Wifes bday to orrow so no work then but The rest of the week I should get some stuff done.

      The passenger side is nearly rusted through.



      Drovers side turns out to have a big dent. Looks like maybe an accident "repair":

      Pieces actually starting to go back in. Lots of welding to do but it fits nicely.

      I'll never complain about the rust repair on my to-do list again. It's terrifying that all that can live under such a beautiful car. Im looking forward to watching this come back to life.

      I didn't expect that much rust below the cowl. Glad you opened it up and found it, that would be a safety hazzard. Nice build!

      Toe board looks like it fits nice. In my experience the welding is the "easy" part as all the work is in the replacement part fitment.

      Keep it up, it will turn out great!

      It really is a shame, some dirtbag just patched it up to sell it to an unsuspecting buyer, people suck!

      Nice build! Coyotes are great! Let me know if you need a 6-speed for one.

      Spent a few hours tonight stripping out the drivers side floor pans and getting the new ones ready. The fit was awesome. Having a plasma cutter sure made the job easier.






      Off to Cabo tomorrow so no work next week.
