Dizzy rebuild GT-E ?

The GT-E was only available for a few brief months in 1968. Total production would not have kept the assembly line busy for more than a half day. If you know anything about a GT-E, it is important, and this is the place to share it. The GT-E registry is maintained by Jim Pinkerton.

I would recommend Tim O'Connor (http://428cobrajetcars.com/), but I hear that he has closed - at least for now.
JohnSlack on the Boss forum is stepping up to the task, but I have no info on how his work is.

Brian,
Do you still have the distributor and is it for sale? My GT-E is a March 12 build date code.

If John Slack puts his hand to anything it will be meticulous. Follow the link to the BOSS 302 site and PM him.

If you need a good place to restore an important Distributor (since Tim has quit doing it) try Bill Upshaw at Mansfield Mustangs. He just finished rebuilding a 69 CJ distributor for us. Very, very particular and he understands Ford Big Blocks from the performance era...427s included.
