How to Build Ford Restomod Street Machines shows you how to modify your vintage Ford to accelerate, stop, corner, and ride as good as - if not better than - Detroit's best new high-performance cars.

Not what I expected Jan 6, 2008
I got this book to help me make improvements to my Mustang. It is touted a source to show you how to update your Mustang to drive more like today's cars. Instead I got a book that gives you ideas on what to do, but doesn't show how to do it. If you own a classic Mustang then you already know that the brakes need to be updated, that the seats could be better, and everything else this book "teaches" you. What I want is a book to show me how to do it. That is not this book.
Excellent for the hobbist Jun 4, 2007
This book cover all the basics in Restomod. For someone who has never done a project like this it is excellent. I still refer to it. And the principles apply to a number of Ford models, not just Mustangs. If you build classic Fords to be driven on the street you should have this book in your shop.
This book is a gem! Oct 14, 2005

A good size book that covers so much and its good value.If you are thinking about your next automotive project Ford this book will help you.
