Can you give us any specs on the engine, Rusty? I see it has BBM heads and a Victor intake.

I don't have the specs. I'm sure Russ67scode will answer that.

Doug it’s the engine out of my 67 mustang. To make a long story short I put a new Detroit locker and new gears in the rear. I hammered the throttle and the car hooked a HARD left  I hit the brakes turned the wheel and the mustang slid down the grass bank spun around came across the road and when it hit the grass on the other side it dug in and rolled over

Wow, that is sad. So sorry. :-[ :'(

Have to ask though. Was the road crowned or flat? Rear steer for sure or did the car wheelie enough to lose steering control?

Went to edit some spelling errors and half my typing went away.
 Well the fairlane will be faster and the extra wheel base will help

Wow, I feel terrible for you, Russ. That just plain sucks! First, I'm glad you weren't hurt! You must have had your seatbelts on. I've had my car for 34 years, so I know what you must be feeling, as far as losing an old friend.

I'm glad you got a new project to put the engine in, but I also hope you don't give up on the Mustang. Or at the very least, see that it goes to someone willing to put the time and effort into getting her up and rolling again. Not an easy task, but it's doable.

Tub it! 
Time for full cage fiberglass doors, fenders and hood and new metal roof (think George Vega)
You can have it looking good and much lighter too. My '69 only had a metal roof and rear quarters.
