It sure would be a good time to do a mini-tub it so you could put decent meats under the rear . . . .

Hey Dennis been a long time. I was hoping you would show up. Mini tub in progress. 29x11.5 fit nice with plenty of room to spare.

It has been a long time. Glad to see that your back at it. As you can see, I'm still screwing around with the old street/strip stang. We're racing Prostick in Baltimore tomorrow.

I just reread your thread and saw the photos with the wheels under the rear of the car. Looks awesome! Keep up the good work!

The 351w block will fit with stock shock towers, but it is tight. I just put one in on my car. With an MII set-up itll have tons of room. There are notched tower options as well but they are rarer.

With a drag racing set-up I don't think the MII set-up would be a disadvantage, but I'm not sure.

Not a lot of travel in the mustang II suspension and since I will be using a leafspring rear with Cal Trac bars they want more travel then the mustang II offers. Ive seen cars work in drag race set ups with the II suspension but most had 4 links or ladder bar set ups. With the global west coil over they are claiming 9 inches of travel with their set up which is great. Since the car will be multi use Im just trying to figure out what would be optimum.

I did the TCI Mustang II eight years ago on my '69 Mach 1, project slowed down (well..stopped) and I just restarted a month ago. Looking forward to getting it off the rotisserie, plan is all four wheels on the ground by July!!
