Re: 351C performance question - Please chime in

My 351 C is pretty sluggish off the line. I'm running a 2.75 open final drive behind the three speed-stock from OEM 351W 2V stock motor-which I believe is the root cause in my case. Pulls hard when revs come up. The previous owner had the engine rebuilt. It came with 4V heads, an unknown cam, Edelbr...

Re: The German Cousin

Beautiful Merkur Chris! I bought a 1985 when we lived in Pittsburgh in the early '90s as a winter car to keep my '89 LX 5.0/5 speed convertible off the street. Amazed at the differences when comparing the cars from the same company built at roughly the same time but at different global plants servin...

Re: Anybody near Plymouth MI? I need a Maverick Inspected

I'm local and I'd be happy to take a look at the car. I've owned a crusty 4 door Comet back in the day so I've got that going for me! I could make it over Thursday late afternoon, Friday morning, or this weekend.

Re: Detroit area 1969 base convertible

Friday night parade was fun. Had my family with me in the car and saw my Mom and Dad and favorite Aunt and Uncle for dinner beforehand. I swapped on my small round air cleaner to my oval Cougar air cleaner for the parade and the Cruise (as well as to help my Dad get his Corvette running). After the ...

Re: Detroit area 1969 base convertible

Wash and polish today to get ready for Berkley Parade tonight. I also need to realign the steering wheel a bit and figure out the turn signal cancelling system as it's a bit wonky now.

Re: Detroit area 1969 base convertible

I mounted the door panels last night. I've been helping my dad get his split window on the road for the Dream Cruise tomorrow so I've been postponing the installation. John's plastic panels mean no more wet warpage of the fiber board stuff. Door cavities sprayed down with Eastwood heavy duty anti-ru...
