What are long pants? Temp exhaust welded up.* A couple throttle pops for those who like big torque!* Whole car jumps over!* What a beast!!* I little more radical than I thought it might be, but all the better!!* Enjoy!!

Hood back on with large cutout for the old Weber 48 IDA's. I had a cold air system on the Webers with a large flat plenum filter on the hood so I could run open stacks

This crate motor with the Edelbrock Super Victor is one tall combination. These pics are with no carb spacer, but the plenum height and air gap of the Super Victor makes me think a carb spacer will not help performance or cooling much on this manifold. I have a Ford Racing 14 inch drop base air cleaner on order. It is blue with the slant edge treatment similar to the valve covers. Anyway, nothing a Boss 9 scoop will not cover!!

The topping on the cake! Ford Racing dropped based air cleaner on the beast. It has a slant edge look like the valve covers. Small cut out on the edges in the hood under the scoop, to go around it. Again, this is one tall motor combination.

I think it looks bitchin!!! Boss 9 scoop will cover it all up. Need to install the plastic trim ring around the large hole in the hood

Dudes,
This 1965 Mustang 289 4 barrel, 4 speed, ended up in my garage in December. It is a 2 owner car with $72k original miles. 25 years ago the owner had it fall off the jack stands while doing a clutch job. Fortunately he had some chunks of fire wood that kept it off him!!

It had been sitting for many years, 25 years ago, so I finished the clutch job and got it up and running again. He drove it 50 miles and put it away again in his basement garage and there it set.....

So Deja vu, here it came back. The fuel system was the most horrible condition I have ever seen. Full on black tar everywhere. Carb, and gas tank got the treatment for cleaning. Blew down and cleaned the gas lines. Threw away the fuel pump. Slowly and carefully rolled the engine with the dizzy out pumping the new oil through the motor. New tune up parts, and she roared back to life. Redid the brakes, master and wheel cylinders. She stops pretty darn nice.

He is going the paint it and get it back to a nice driver status. It has so many original Ford parts on it such as shocks and suspension stuff. The semi-heated basement has kept it very nice.

Rob
