Re: close ratio with 3.0 rear?

Only experience I have with like ratios is my T5-Z. Not the best first gear ratio. I know Ford/Mercury built cars that way. I parted one out about 20 years ago. I would recommend changing the rear gears to 3.25 or 3.50 with a traction lock unit.

Re: Oh no!

Right on! As a fellow Miata owner, I fully support this decision. They are not fast but they are so much fun. Love the BRG color and hardtop. If you were to sell the hardtop separately, it would be worth over $1k. Yours is known as a NB, or second generation. I have a NA, first gen., with the pop u...

Re: 1968 XR7G 36x48" Mercury Dealer Showroom poster reprints for sale

This is one of those times where I have to put on my man pants and tell my wife where it will be prominently displayed in our home and not ask "if". I will let you know how that goes, :mrgreen: ! That's funny. Let me know if you need advice on convincing your wife. My older reproduction of this pos...

Oh no!

Some of you know that in September my 2015 Ford Focus was totaled by an inattentive driver, or he was just trying to pass my by going through my car. Well, I got a decent settlement for my car.

Re: Treating inside of door - advice appreciated

It looks like your door was drilled for the extra seals that some cars got. https://secure.cougarpartscatalog.com/d320.html?attribs=79 I have only seen them on one car originally from the factory.

Re: Found R-Code 1968 Cougar Today

Sold for 26,766.00 Not a bad profit margin. I hope the high bidder is a real bidder and does not try and get out of it. And I hope to see it restored to a high standard.

I had a 69 Standard hard top that had 2 locations in the trunk for the spair tire J hook to be held in place. One it the correct location for a hard top under the package tray and one where a convertible would have one on edge of the right hand drop off. That one had had the hoop cut off. Are you s...
