No, I still have my "under construction" 2007 American Racecars BBF powered dragster:
But, I'm back in the door car biz for now. I just bought my younger brother's 66 Mustang coupe. He's had it about 5 years and I always told him I had dibs if he ever sold it. He decided to sell, so it's mine now. It's not a show car by any means, but it's got a VERY solid foundation for something nice (if I keep it). It's originally a 289 2V 3 sp manual car that's has been made into a street/strip car. Mostly strip since he put the spool and 4.56 gears in. I may put a locker and 3.70's or so back in to get in on the street more.
The car appears to be solid. The frame rails are straight all around with no evidence of a crash. There is no rust anywhere. Floors, rockers, doors, quarters, trunk, etc. Only a little bondo in the passenger door and fender. The only semi-major body work with be around the rear wheel openings where it was "clearanced" with a hammer so he could fit 28X9 slicks.
Over the past five years it has had a chassis build to perpare it for more power.
9" rear narrowed to stock width, had "Torino" housing ends so Explorer rear disks are a bolt on. Rear gears are 4.56 and spool along with Moser 33 spline axles.
Cal-Trac bars, w Calvert mono-leaf shocks and Rancho 5 way adjustable shocks.
The front end was rebuilt last winter with all new control arms. Upper and lower arms along with the spring perches have been rollerized. No bushings anywhere. All roller bearing from Opentracker:
New tie rods, springs, idler arm, strut rod busings, etc. We also did a Granda front disk swap at the same time. Before the spings where put in you could move the front end through it's entire travel with one hand. No friction at all. The wheels are from Holeshot. It has a 6 pt rollbar and Kirkey aluminum seats.
The engine is nothing special, but it'll do for now until a big inch Windsor can be built. .030 over 68 302, stock rods w ARP bolts, TRW forged flat tops. Cam is a Comp 282S that was custom ground with a slightly wider lobe center. Performer RPM aluminum heads w 2.02/1.60 valves were used out of the box. (I built the engine) RPM intake, 700 dp, 1 5/8 headers, Duraspark dist with a MSD 6AL box. It also has a Edelbrock 150 hp nitrous system. Trans a a C4 with full manual valve body, PTC street/strip converter. Also has an aluminum driveshaft. It has all braided fuel lines and two seperate fuel systems for the engine and nitrous.
More pics to come later. Wadda ya think. Year, I know it's not a BBF, but this car is too nice to cut to put one in.
