I am very happy with my G, but would love to have a GT-E someday. Oh well maybe when I strike it rich.

Check the registry for production specs. It has the info on the locking rear ends. The one I used to own had a 3.50 Traction-Lock as well. Registry shows standards (24 3.50 with 427 cars and 6 more with 428 for a total of 30 with the 3.50L) and XR-7 (57 3.50 with 427 cars and 11 more with 428 for a total of 68 with the 3.50L). There was also 1 with a 3.25 locking rear end and 2 3.90 locking. Although I don't know how many there were some with 4.11 locking I believe.

Regards,

1 of the 3 has a factory 3.50.1,
Funny it’s the only car of the 3 that has “factory “ headrests!
Maybe Ford,Lincoln Mercury decided it was mandatory,,lol

1 pegleg
1 has 3,50.1 T-Lok (my modification)
I think I know this car. I know two of the previous owners and wish it was my cat. Now black exterior, right?
Correct Scott


I now have a Trailer queen, a Nice Driver,and a used original example. (Thanks to WCCC, it’s now pure stock)
