Mustang Monthly is considering taking on a new project car buildup, but we’re conflicted on which generation to tackle this time around so help us out with your opinion. If we were to start a new project, which model of Mustang would you most like to see? Our only restriction is that an early fastback is out of the question, since a quick perusal of our paycheck and bank account makes owning a fastback nothing more than a pipe dream at this point, based on how their prices have exploded in the last 10 years. Convertibles are getting expensive too but you can still occasionally find a deal on one, so that may be an option. And my personal obsession with the Mustang II makes me hope you overwhelmingly vote for this generation of Mustang. It’s the only Mustang fastback that you can get cheap, the suspension has more aftermarket support than any other chassis in the world, and a hot small-block/6-speed combo could be cool! But I also realize that it’s not most people’s favorite generation of Mustang, so…

We’d appreciate your opinion on how we should narrow down our eBay and Craigslist search criteria, so let us know in this survey what you would like to see us start with, and feel free to go into details in the comments. Such as, “restore it” or “put a big-block in it” or something like that.

1964 ½-’66: When most people think “Mustang” this is the picture that pops up in their mind. Coupes are affordable, convertibles and fastbacks not so much.
1967-’68: We just wrapped up Jerry Heasley’s ’68 convertible project a few months ago so we’d rather not take on another one right away, but let us know if you want to see another one.
1969-’70: Maybe build a Parnelli Trans Am clone but in a coupe?
1971-’73: The “big” Mustang hasn’t seen a lot of love in magazines, especially from a tech standpoint.
1974-’78: Yes, please.
