Re: Radiator Overflow jug a factory option?

I'm using the windshield washer reservoir for a catch can on mine, as I'm not sure I've ever used the washers in 30 years of ownership. Drag strips won't let you run without a catch can, so it was an easy decision.

Re: Bullitt Mustang and my Cougar

Thanks for the info. Do you have a photo/link to the Marti for the 559 car? I’m guessing 558 is the stunt car they pulled from a Mexican junkyard recently? I know I've seen the Marti report, but I can't seem to find it. If I do then I'll send you a link to it. Here's a link to the Historic Vehicle ...

Re: Green 1967 Cougar XR7 Revival

Nice work! Sorry I wasn't more timely with my response, but... I replaced a bunch of the same sheetmetal on mine, but included the torque box. It would have been easier to add one before you got things welded together, but you could still add one. I ended up notching the tab that fits between the fr...

Re: Bullitt Mustang and my Cougar

Per the Historical Vehicle Society and the Marti report, car number 559 (the one you saw) was built on January 8, 1968. I haven't seen confirmation that 558 was built the same day, but it's very likely. I've been a Bullitt fan ever since I saw the movie (at least the car chase) on my 13th birthday. ...

Re: 390 Horsepower rating timeline?

Well, it's no wonder things have been a little confusing! I see every rating I mentioned between 1966 and 1969.

390 Horsepower rating timeline?

I tried doing a search and didn't manage to find anything, so here's my question... There seems to be quite a bit of variation as to what the S-code 390 was rated at. I've seen 315, 320, 325 and 335. Does someone have a timeline for when they had those ratings? I had always thought it was 320@4800, ...

Re: 67/68 Shock Replacement Recommendations

I put Koni shocks on mine. I used the Mustang part numbers both front and rear, but added extensions on the rear ones. I have very few miles on them, but so far everything has worked alright. I had the same question last year and there was a pretty lengthy discussion on it at that point, too. I ende...

Re: Augusta Green '68 base

Yes, it's still a 390. He's NHRA Stock class legal, so the number of modifications is actually relatively small. It has to be stock compression ratio, factory heads, factory intake, and factory lift on the cam. I think he's still running C6AE-R heads that meet all of the factory specifications. The ...

Re: Augusta Green '68 base

All I could find quickly was this video from about 10 years ago. It still looks about the same, but is running a little faster. The audio just doesn't do it justice. It sounds REALLY nice in real life. This car is one of the reasons I'd like to do an FE swap with my car (in spite of the headaches). ...
