I was caught in the rain real bad this summer in my '65 fastback - shelby hood, open element air cleaner. I never seen rain like this, just sheets, and I was on the highway - 30 minutes from home. Wipers couldn't do much of anything, and large puddles, trucks and underpasses completely enveloped me in water.
I was praying I wouldn't stall or hydroplane, but the stang kept going. I eventually got home, openned the hood and was shocked that the engine compartment was relatively dry!!
Unless you are following some other vehicle closely spraying water directly into your grill, you will probably be OK. I also have an aftermarket ignition system and distributor. I guess I was lucky.
