Re: To be honest, Santa has sent 2 Boxes ....

This is just a observation/question because I don't know - does this carb have a A/T kick down linkage? It looks like it does. Should it? I thought a 68 kick down operated off the gas pedal so it would not have it on the carb.
Looks great by the way!

The nice thing about tubular upper front control arms is you can usually lower the pickup point 1 3/4" I think to get the best geometry without using angled ball joint spacers. (1" is the usual "Shelby drop "with stock UCA's)

Another option is the concourse mustang forum. http://www.concoursmustang.com/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=3e28f70b907e58d0ca822548d297b1c8& M...

Re: Prototype Boss Bronco found (There's still hope for the Eliminator prototype.)

I have the Kar-Kraft book but haven't had time to finish reading it. I checked last night, it has four pages about the Boss9 Cougars and a few paragraphs about the Trans-am Cougars.

X code production numbers

Were all X code cars XR7's or G's? I was talking about it with my brother and we cant recall ever seeing a standard Cougar with a 390-2V.
Thanks in advance. Mike

Re: 428 CJ 50th Anniversary

5 year/50000 mile warranty in 1968? Is that a misprint?

Re: '69 Spoiler restoration

Mine are pretty straight so I did not try to fix the bowing, But I would probably turn it upside down and place some weights on it to straiten the bow. I have seen that done on fiberglass hoods to take the bow out.

Re: '69 Spoiler restoration

Mine was split between the top and bottom on one end if I remember correctly. What I did was epoxy the split together, then when that dries drill a small hole at each end of the split and fill them with more epoxy. When the epoxy was dry I made a "V" grove with a dremel tool along the split. Then I ...
