  1. I bought it from Eddie at ADCO Mustangs in Harrison AR. It's the fifth I've bought from him (66,67,69 and two 71s). The others are all projects. The one I bought yesterday was for parts. I'll probably sell the shell after I get my stuff off it. If you're considering something from Eddie I can shoot pictures for you. He and his wife don't do much in the way of social media/internet.
  2. Was this a pewter 71 fastback that you bought? It's peeling yellow. The nose is grabber blue underneath and trying to be blue again. Had a half vinyl roof that messed up the metal up there.
  3. I think you did fine. I was doing the same thing today. I bought a '71 parts car this afternoon. It looks to have been "MACHed" from a base model a long time ago. I'll be getting a hood, deluxe interior door hardware, tach, clutch pedals, tail light panel honeycomb, rear end, urethane bumper and front discs. Price situation was similar to what you encountered. Part of the deal is I have to pull and return the engine.
  4. A '66 427 with a '67 hood. Had it for about a year.
  5. Did a dropped tube axle in a '66. I moved the place where the frame gets taller back to help keep the nose down. Lots of room for a any engine once the shock towers are gone. After I got the suspension in the project got put away so I can't comment on how it rides (yet).
  6. The low end performance of the engine is a big factor in happy overdrive gearing. My 2000 Viper has a .5 sixth gear and with a 3.07 ring and pinion. Sixth can be used at 60 mph quite easily. I have the same trans in a '72 Vette and a 3.55 final drive. When it had a 427 in it with a 246 @ 50 cam, 70 MPH was about the slowest it was happy in sixth. When it had a mild 350 with a 196 @ 50 cam it was easy to use sixth down to about 63 MPH. I have an 11.5 :1 compression 406 in a Camaro that required a slower advance curve when I installed a TKO600 in it. It had been fine with the 1:1 four sp
  7. If it was TYCO PRO question I could ask Pat Dennis but I doubt if he's got any thing to add about this one.
  8. Don't know how rare but it is cool. Solid rivet?
  9. There was another strike in '72. When it was resolved about 1100 semi-complete Camaros and Firebirds were crushed as there were too many issues with finishing them. I saw a photo of a bunch of them stacked two high while waiting to be crushed. I wish my '78 was a '72 (not a crushed one though).
  10. Throttle response is going to be insane :)
  11. I bought an Innovate. It just quite working after about three years. I found it very useful. My biggest surprise was observing how at other than WOT hitting theoretical AFR targets did not always produce good drivability. I often had to be a bit rich to get a smooth and responsive running engine. I believe the reason for this is the meter is reading the average AFR of the bank being sampled. Any lean cylinders will hut the way the engine runs a lot more than some cylinders that are a bit too rich. This along with reversion and other issues with a larger cam require added fuel as a so
