Okay,
We have seen beautiful examples of an A code and a 65 Hipo, but how about a 66 Hipo?

Jeff,
Thanks for the reply. I have been to the hipo web site plenty, I was just hoping for someone here on the VMF to share a couple of photos like round2K posted of his 65 hipo.

Stacy,
Thank you very much! That is exactly what I was looking for. What an awesome engine compartment.

And the differences between a late 66 Dearborn and an April 66 San Jose would be?

Could be numerous differences, including, but not limited to:

-Inspection marks
-Fasteners, including markings on fasteners
-Orientation of parts
-Differences in the amount of Sound Deadener/Sealant used

etc...

Also note that I have been dinged for incorrect heater hose routing and my kar has the hoses routed just as in Bob's is. I've had too many judges tell me I should have a strap on the brace to support the hoses though not all have dinged me for it. Jan 66 Dearborn Kar....

I'd post a pic or two of my engine compartment but the one round2k posted of Bob's is better...

Bobs car is a heater delete - no heater hoses present. That makes routing easier! Got you, Merlyn!

To add to Charles list .... the decal on the master cylinder. Of course you really don't know if your car was completed in April. Depending on the spcific date on your car it may have been March or May

Interesting, see that a Dearborn car with wire clamps.... must be because of the late date if correct.
