Project "Road Warrior" '92 fox body

FCM's long term project '92 LX Fox Body Mustang

 

    Our resident '92 LX project car is just like most fox body mustangs, while it is a survivor car, she's got her issues. Our goal is to build an all purpose street car, that can handle long trips, run respectable numbers at the Friday night test & tune, and handle a twisty or two.

    We named it "Road Warrior" because we drive this car to major events all over the country. So few people drive their foxes anymore, and we decided it was time to change that. So keep an eye out for the old girl at NMRA events, Mustang Week, Foxtoberfest, Street Car Takeover, and tons more. 

    We have many projects planned for our survivor fox body. Things like brakes, five lug conversion, paint, interior changes, and tons more. A coyote swap may also be in the works, as long as we can keep our a/c! Please email us with what projects you are working on, and what articles you would like to see. CR

We did three events this year at Beech bend park, at 382 miles each time, no issues to report!

Our trips to Foxtoberfest total 1,122 miles there and back. Project "Road Warrior" was a blast going through the mountains!

Our trip to Myrtle Beach for Mustang Week will be the ultimate test for our project '92 LX! Traveling over 1,400 miles for the event!

Driving long distances in our project car means it has to be ultra reliable, we are always pressed for time, and have major commitments a these events

Project Car News 

Project "Road Warrior" is going down for a coyote swap over the winter, and we hope to have it out in the Spring to get back out on the road. As of 11/07/17 the engine and transmission has been removed from the car, as well as the: cruise control, throttle cable, engine harness, power steering lines, and other various wiring. 

We have secured a 2011 F150 coyote engine to convert over to Mustang spec, and drop in the car. We will be documenting the entire build on our YouTube channel, which will be not only entertaining, but informative. The swap alone is a huge undertaking, and the documentation aspect makes it even more challenging. Rest assured I will cover every aspect of this build in detail, and will have a parts/cost breakdown of everything you need to perform this swap. Make sure you subscribe to the channel for five videos each week of the build, shenanigans, and new parts unboxing. 

There are still a lot of unknowns as to the finished product, such as: transmission, exhaust, will the engine bay be smoothed, what clutch, etc. Keep it tuned right here for constant updates.

We will be constantly updating this section with new pictures and a parts list, check back often.
