I’ve been doing some research on alignment specs for a ’66 Mustang and I’ve seen two or three different answers to the question I have. I’m doing the Shelby Drop on a ’66 Mustang Coupe. The car was originally a I6 but is being converted to a V8(302), with power steering. I bought new GT springs for it and the tires are 17” radial. I’ve read that the alignment specs after the Drop should be:

1/8" toe

0 to -.5 camber

+1.5 to +2.5 caster

A few post later, I read that those specs were incorrect. Does anyone know what the specs should be? It just a weekend toy. No racing and no long road trips.

Doesn't matter what "specs" are - they're just guidelines for people that don't really know how to do an "alignment". Find a shop in your area that does and take it there, then watch and measure tire pressures, wear and temperature. Finding the proper "specs" for your combination could take multiple attempts.
