Watched it last night, I agree. Lots of old footage I'd never seen.
Saw it today, great movie, thanks again guys.
Yes movies on Henry Gregor Felson books would be fantastic
The wife and I went and saw it today. I really enjoyed it but I knew who Ken Miles, Phil Remington etc. were before we walked into the theatre. My wife on the other hand tolerates my gear head background and encourages me to do more.
She didn't have a clue about Miles and Shelby or what they all accomplished in a short period of time. It was interesting that at the end of the movie she was all teared up and wanted to know why Miles committed suicide.
Didn't see that coming from her but it sure tells you that even people you know closely can have a total different take on things around them.
The movie is worth seeing guys and Christian Bales pulls off a great Ken Miles.
Thought the same thing but on second look could it be an FE?
The distributor is in the right place for a Ford FE. Not sure about the Holley carb with the auto choke set up on it.
more Shelby fun
Valve cover bolts are in the right place too.
Probably an FE.
A movie about Briggs Swift Cunningham II would be interesting.
It has a set of those el cheapo chrome valve covers on it- IIRC they are about $45. I have a couple sets to use on my test stand, don't care if they get dinged up
arkiehotrods - Thanks for link
Watched the Shelby America documentary on Netflix with my wife and agree with what has been posted here, it is a "must see" if you have seen the movie. My two sons went to the movie with me but now my wife wants to see the movie so I'll be seeing it again.
Couldnt help but love all the power cars but that 63 ford country squire wag that was Kens family car,
was also real eye candy for me not counting others....and the falcons on the assembly line was also a reconfigured work of art as well
In the 17 days after release the worldwide box office is $143 million.
