My build aiming for trans am style
After asking you all probably a billion questions I figured you'd like to see the fruits of all your question answering skills haha. Keep in mind the kinks are not all worked out.
Its a 351c with flat tops ARP engine fasteners pretty much everywhere, I'm spinning her to a healthy 7000 rpm, it has milled 2v heads with a comp ratio of 9.5 but will soon have Aussie heads with almost 11.0 static.
The ignition system is a pertronix flamethrower 3 with an MSD blaster coil 3. It has Ford racing plug wires.
The suspension is poly bushing everywhere I could get them with grab a team front springs and 4.5 mid eye leafs with a small block to lower it just a tad more in the rear, it has premium upper and lower control arms. The front shocks are from a company in Germany, but I can't remember the name, I apologize. The rear are konis.
The brakes are big drums in the rear and wilwood cross drilled and slotted in the front with an SSBC proportioning valve, it uses manual brakes with a dual bowl master.
It puts its power through a 2001 mustang T5 that's got a clock on it for when I have to swap in a astro gear set, I'm waiting it out. The rear end is in the process of installing a set of 4.10's with a Yukon differential.
The interior is stock enough for now, with just a tach added for ease, and some gauges where the AC used to be.
For those that are going to complain about doing anything to the car, it is mine, do whatever you want to yours, but on the bright side, it started life as a 1970 mustang v6 with a c4 and ac. So not a whole lot lost.
Let me know your opinions.
