BOSS, I'm in the process of building my 69 formal street strip car. Highly interested in pics of your yours if you have any. Doing a 460/C6 Caltrac/Calvert leaf car. If I had 6K I'd snag it up, save me some time and lots of $$$. Good price.

Also BOSS you have the PN on the hooker headers?

Onlyfords...interested in your build as well.

Here is my some of the build of mine, mini-tubbing it. http://s632.photobucket.com/user/mik...brary/Mini-tub

Ended up going a little different route. Found a '68 Falcon w/ a new 302 in it. I'm going to warm that over and build the rest of the car and go "385" block at a later date. Watching all "Fairlane/Torino" builds w/ intrest as most of those parts will work on my Falcon. J

Wow car sits/looks badass. I have a black 68 fastback. I will be thrilled if I can get mine to sit like that. Gotta get the motor back in it first. Nice car.

68 torino 460 etc..
