LS 6.0 swap , 4L65E trans , TCI IFS , Detroit Speed Quadralink rear suspension , Rocket Racing wheels , Michelin tires , Holley Dominator EFI , Detroit Speed mini-tubs , many custom body mods , complete 2 1/2" stainless exhaust with x-pipe , extensively modified B&M Quicksilver shifter , etc... Body modifications consist of 68 Shelby taillights , front and rear valances. 68 Mustang dash with Autometer gauges. Shaved cowl area. 2008 Challenger headlights with custom made grille. Front stock suspension was replaced with a TCI IFS kit. This meant that the stock shock towers , cross member , steering , suspension and brakes were history. The TCI kit is a major upgrade in all areas and when you add up the cost to replace all of your stock suspension and everything else , the TCI kit doesn't cost much more . The stock rear suspension is gone as well . Everything was replaced by a Detroit Speed Quadralink suspension package. This kit was designed for the early model Mustangs but can be made to work with the 67-68 Cougar with a little redesign work of the lower torque boxes and upper frame link mounts. The rear frame section of 67-68 Cougars is approx 3" longer than that of the Mustang.

Ford 8.8 Differential08/27/2019
Out back I went with a 98 Explorer 8.8. This piece is the code D4 axle which means it has the limited slip Trac-lok , 31 spline axles and 3.73 gears. I ordered up new seals, bearings , and a short side axle from Rockauto . The trick here is the Explo...
Modified B&M Quicksilver shifter08/26/2019
I didn't want to just bolt in an off the shelf shifter as is. I wanted something that looked like it belonged. The Quicksilver had the features that I wanted , it just didn't have the look I was after. I had to cut it apart and remove the main stick....
68 Cougar Pro-Touring / Resto-mod08/23/2019
