Re: Found R-Code 1968 Cougar Today

Karguy: I have been sitting back watching you use your perceived defects in my 68 XR7 GTE 428 4 speed to help up sell you car. Congrats on the great find, but what you are doing on this forum and on EBay is lame and weak. I’m not going to go into how many ways my car differs from the one you bought,...

Re: Wanted 68 Original matching pair front rotors

Thanks Don.I guess that is assuming someone will cut them below spec for you. Do I need a disposable cell phone?

Wanted 68 Original matching pair front rotors

Need a pair that are thick enough to cut. They were .935 new and have to be at least .875 to cut. In 68, these were 2 piece rotors. I have the hubs; need just the rotors. No repros please.

Re: 68 R Code

I have been reviewing my 428 4 speed GTE build sheet to help Royce find the correct colors for spring paint marks. He said that there are only about 20 68 R codes accounted for. Of interest for these cars, he says mine is the only complete build sheet. Anyone else know of one that has the build shee...

Re: Carlisle Ford Nationals

Thank Phil and the Delmarva Club for babysitting my GTE at Carlisle. I couldn’t be there but wanted the car to represent our community. Phil, you did a great job on the video! Just waiting for the GTE to come back home.

Re: 1969 428SCJ

The really crazy thing is that, if you look closely, you will see a mate black hood instead of the Ram-Air hood the dealer installed to make this Q code more like an R code. Tom was winning so many races, race officials made him remove the Ram Air because they felt it was an unfair advantage. Of cou...

Re: 1969 428SCJ

The comments so far have been very kind. Most of you know me and so you know a car always leaves me better than I got it. But I maintained the mods the original owner made to make this car dominate Pure stock. Lighter weights in the distributor for a quicker wind up, shimmed and thinner front stabil...
