These pictures were actually taken before I had the front end aligned so the tires were more in than they are now. The front end is a Heidts unit and the initial set up was pretty far off when I got it to the shop.
A good friend of mine dropped over last night and we spent about 4 hours setting up the Heidts 4 link rear. This is the first 4 link I've dealt with and the friend of mine has set up race cars for years.
The car sits a bit lower in the back now and the front tires sit better in the fenders.
Of course no one was suppose to notice...............
That car is awesome! Congrats on the trophy. After contemplating it for well over a year I've decided to paint my 69 black. You just can't go wrong with black. Unless you're driving it daily. Hard to keep clean.
The ram air base was hand fabricated using a K&N drop aircleaner and adding to it so the rubber seal would drop down over for the ram air effect.
The shop is thinking about setting up to make the air cleaner out of billet aluminum. It would work on any mustang with the Boss scoop and a holley carb. We're still kicking this around.
As far as it being on Ebay. A car is only new once. The reserve and buy it now is high but still less than the build cost. If I can sell it, I can build another with what we've learned. If it doesn't sell, I'll keep it and enjoy it.
I get bored not working on a car and have too much wrapped up into this one to be able to do another.
If anyone would be interested in a ram air like this one go to www.metalcraftersonline.com and email them. The more interest that's shown, the more likely they are to set the machining up for it.
Congrats Steve on the award!! The guys at Metal Crafters were pretty stoked about it...
Being able to see it in person certainly helped give me some idea's, SOOO I talked to John about painting it, and of course it didnt take much to talk my hubby Robert about doing exhaust and console for mine! I'll take pics of a die hard Chevy guy working on a Ford!! Sorry to hear tho' we wont be seeing it around...
