66 coupe period correct suspension
Yes this is my third post, so hello! Now on the the nitty gritty. I read and searched through the forum, searched products on the intrawebs, and either I've over looked for what I'm searching for or I haven't looked hard enough. I have a pair of 66 coupes. One is restored, nothing show quality, but a nice cruiser and that's about as far as I want to with that one. This post is more about the other one. What I have is a very solid coupe in a box. I purchased it that way. So my cross roads is this. Put it back to orginal or build a new track toy.
I am leaning towards track toy, however my intentions with the track toy is to run period correct suspension as Shelby or other teams would have ran by in the hayday of trans am racing. So with that being said I guess I'm looking at shocks, springs, and steering box, as well as set up geometry. Like I said maybe I haven't looked hard enough or in the right places but I'm having trouble coming up with what exactly these guys were running back in the day.
I'm not so concerned with the rest of the car being correct, just in the handling department. I was planning a smile no thrills driveline, like a 5.0 and t-5. However I would upgrade the brakes to a dual circuit disc set up with ducting to keep the temps within operating specs.
So any help or suggestions with set up would be appreciated.
