    1984 Mustang T Top Coupe Coyote 5.0 Project

    Explore Kenny Brown Performance today!!
    1984 Mustang T Top Coupe Coyote 5.0 Project

    This will be The Build Thread for my wife’s 1984 T Top Factory Black Coupe.


    Here is the basic Plan as of now:

    -Smooth Engine Bay
    -Fresh Black Paint-will a little extra something-we just came up with a few days ago
    -Coyote 5.0 crate motor
    -Performance Automatic 4R70W Coyote kit
    -4.6 K member-with control arms, new springs, struts, steering rack all bushings etc
    -New rear control arms, springs, shocks
    -3.73 gears
    -Rear brakes: Rear Disc Conversion
    -Front brakes: Upgraded rotors and calipers
    -Complete EFI Fuel System-new tank, lines, pumps etc
    -New headlights and 84 tail lights, emblems, door handles, cowl etc
    -Nitto NT 05 Tires with SVE Anniversary Chrome Rims
    -Interior will be redone with mostly a stock look and all Black


    If you are wondering…yes my wife is working on her own car. She has been in the garage with me for hours already working on removing the interior, cleaning the interior pieces we are going to re-use and she is helping me pull the engine and trans this weekend.


    Here is the T Top Coupe in question. It is a pretty solid car, but still needs a ton of work:



    Here it is arriving from TN on 9/29/11





    Here it is in our garage before we touched it---and yes it is leaking on my nice new garage floor!!!

    Interior when it arrived-had seats from an 87-93 gray and the rest of the interior was some crappy light blue color.

    First weekend we had the car...this is what the interior looked like after we gutted it...

    The interior will be completed once the car is back from Pro Tree-it will be the last piece of the puzzle. We did however already prep and paint the dash. The interior will be all black. I will paint all the plastic interior pieces black(I did this in my Fox 3 years ago and it still looks perfect-need to prep the pieces by cleaning them thoroughly, use adhesion promoter and then numerous coats of trim paint). We will have the door panels re-done and buy everything else black(dash pad, rug, arm rests, headliner, seats etc.

    Here is the new black dash.

    I love the crank windows-I dont know what it is about them, but I agree they are just Cool...

    I also have to say...I never owned a four eye Fox and never had any desire to own one, but I have to say now that we have one..I am really into it and realize how cool they are.

    SmokinStangs.com is excited to have a build project like this to follow along and share in the action.
    Looking forward to this exciting & most interesting project.



    As I always say....We all can't be doing build projects all the time, so it's great to have a front row seat when one is taking place!!

    Home of the SmokinStangs - Northeast Mustang Rally!
    Mark, the attachments don't seem to be working, at least not for me on Firefox. Can't wait to see!!!

    Never mind... working now. I see you edited. Very nice job! Looks like the PFH car about 2 years ago before ED painted the bay. Good luck with the project!
