Damn, that looks great.
Nice car! It’s going to look great with your new Crites hood.
Here’s a pic of the disclaimer tag that Ford put on the light weight cars:
It takes them a while, they're a mom and pop shop. Mrs. Crites answers the phone and Mr. Crites builds the stuff. They're great people. My son...
Good for you, man. I’ve managed to string together 22 years. Smartest thing I’ve ever done. My thing is that I love feeling good when I wake up....
A dollar to some and roughly $3,900 for most.
Fuckin killer. Love it.
Hey, don't sell yourself short, Rytang, that's what we're all here for. Seriously, though, you're killing it. Great work.
That will be a sad day, indeed.
I'm so sorry for your loss, Ardun. My thoughts are with you and family.
I love gloss black. My Harley was black, my OT Mustang was black with white stripes. Both looked tits all cleaned up, ready to go out......for...
Look what came in the mail the other day:
It's going in my son's '63 Galaxie.
Here's what we did to get rid of the offset shafts. I made a couple bushings that pressed into the original nut then used a grade 8, 3/4 inch bolt...
Are you still running those goofy offset shafts? We got rid of those things on my son's '63.5 Galaxie and it made a huge difference in the way it...
Man, I'd love to take a peak into that motor and see if there's any goodies in it. Looks like a dual point's still in it. Shame to see the old...
Look at that, Larry Hovis, Seargent Carter of "Hogan's Heroes", wrote the screenplay. So obscure there isn't much info on it.
Those are cool hats and all, but that car is awesome. Good luck with the search.
Tim is from Canton, Ohio (my old stomping grounds) and a childhood friend's cousin. I remember being at his grandma's house and there being a huge...
Thanks, Charlie. I have old NHRA rule books on my old computer, I'm going to have to get all that stuff off of it before I forget it again.
Don't pay any more than what you could recover in parting it. People are asking $1500 and up for rugged original 427 blocks. What heads are they?...
Maybe IHRA or AHRA version of NHRA's C/MP? I don't think it's a Nascar class designation.
Mt. Pleasant, Ohio is in the SE corner of the state,...
The 460 wouldn't really fit in with the style of car you're building, in my opinion. I'd build the 289 or better yet an FE of some type. Lots of...
Here's another build thread with some pretty good info in it:
A friend and I used to sell at the Columbus Super Ford spring meet in the late '80's early 90's. We always bought right so we could sell right....
Your welcome! It's a cool build, even if it has a off brand motor in it :) I'm an FE guy.
His name is 1971BB427, out in Portland. He did the same frame work as The Strange Bird. Here's his build thread:...
And doing it well, I might add.
