Thanks.

Of the ~4500 GT's produced in 1973, only 302 were built with the 429. None with 460's. Last time I checked with the registry, there were only 14 documented survivors. It's actually rarer than a Boss 429 Mustang.

Are you going to paint it back red after you get all the work done?

Yup, sticking with the factory 2B - Bright Red. Still considering what to do with stripes and such.

Fantastic story! Between you and Scotty with your bigger car builds it gives us alot to think about. Efficiency and performance go hand in hand when I look at a car to occasionally wind up tight and still want to cruise and enjoy. Maybe even beatup on a newer, fuel injected, car that somebody just bought.Theres nothing like showing tail lights to these guys.
Anyway, good luck and keep the thread going! I for one want to read about that/those fords that couldn't be caught! Ernie

Well you have your work cut out for you. I hate body work like that. I can't wait to see what it looks like with paint on it. This is a super cool car to build. You don't see many of them anymore at all. My 1993 Mustang is a......well just another 1993 Mustang. Keep us updated. Nice job!!

No I don't. Way too busy building engines right now and need it done before this racing season, so I asked a friend to take care of it and handed him a big fat stack of cash.

New engine is coming along too....

Had a little issue with valve clipping at 2.24/1.8, so we turned the valves down to 2.23 and 1.76 to fix it. Picture below is with the valves at max overlap, which isn't much given the 118 LS.

Hooker Header questions; what part number? Is that same chassis as Galaxie or Torino?

Same as Torino, not sure about the Galaxie. Hooker 6126 is what I'm running. Knowing what I know now, I'd be tempted to build my own if I had it to do over again.

Finally getting the heads wrapped up. Machine work and port work are all done. Decided to try out a package using unusually small diameter springs (for a big block). It's a combination for an entirely different application, but it all just happened to fit with the combination of parts I'm suing here. As an added bonus, the small springs bring the weight down to a level that's comparable with titanium parts on larger diameter springs.

Final pressures are set to 130 on the seat and 354/359 over the nose. With the inner springs removed for break-in, pressures are 90/205.
