  2. http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/321935712735? Reserve is not at $3000, lower than that. See how it goes, hate to do this. Tons of good parts here..
  3. If I was in your situation I would put it on E-bay. I have had friends do that and it's way faster. Good luck Good idea. Never tried to sell/buy a car on ebay but this might be a good idea at this point. Where do you guys think i should set a realistic reserve here?
  4. Taking offers. There are a lot of parts here and most the hard part is done on the body.
  5. 1973 Sportsroof for sale. Clear title. I hate to have to do this, but running into money problems. This is a project. Completely taken down to metal, most of it already primed in epoxy. New floor pans and new cowl. Comes 1971 429 Thunderjet motor with D0VE-C heads, taken apart as well. (heads still together). Comes with brand new solid cam and lifters, springs, guide plates... Have a mach 1 hood, drivers door needs finished as well as one fender and deck lid (deck lid should be replaced in my opinion but I do have one). Many parts in duplicate, including dash. Have tach cluster and gauge cluster center piece, parts to convert front to disk brakes (spindles, directional valve, pedal assembly), C6 transmission, all glass in duplicate except windshield. New big block springs for front, lots and lots of stuff too much to list. $3000 . Located in North Augusta SC (near augusta GA)
  6. LOL good call! Not even sure what i was thinking or how i did that Fixed.
  7. Have these up on ebay. Also have calipers but not pictured (pretty much garbage but worth a core charge i guess) http://www.ebay.com/itm/1971-1973-1974-Mustang-Disk-Brake-Spindles-valve-and-pedal-/321732733508?

  9. Thanks, yea I have been researching it quite a bit, what led me to seeking out a turbine compressor. I am really only looking for specifics about this style compressor and if anyone knew anything about them specifically as I am trying to gather parts. Wouldn't expect this forum to teach me how to paint. Thanks for the tips!
  10. Awesome, thanks Don C. I have a gravity fed gun already, so that should be ok to practice with I guess. Guess I will call Graco and find the part number for the hose(s) I need.
  11. I picked up Graco Croix CX-8 for cheap. I have to buy all the hoses still though as it was just the unit itself. I am a complete and total newbie to painting and these systems. Is anyone familer with there? Do I need a special "turbine gun" or will my normal HVLP gun work? Do I need a "pressure pot"? What the heck is that? Just trying to gather parts right now and looking to practice on some old garbage body panels. Thanks
  12. I will take some more pics today. I stripped it further down and removed all the bondo. Appears to have some hail damage but I don't think it was enough damage to justify the amount of body fill I found. If you want to PM me your phone number I will txt them to you later this afternoon
  13. Are you the same guy on facebook trying to sell that mustang for $30,000?
  14. Picasso Original painting done on the hood of the greatest car ever made, the Mach 1 Mustang. $1,000,000
  15. I have a 1971 model 429 with D0VE-C heads and a C6. It originally came out of a mercury with around 100k original miles. The motor is completely disassembled. I have the pistons, rods, heads, crank, 2 barrel factory intake, rockers and heads. I am located near Augusta GA. I am open to offers and/or trade for a 351 (351c or 351w, no 351m) and a c4.
  16. I stripped it hood back a bit more to see what was under the bondo, no holes are rust. Looks like there are some little dings like maybe it had hail damage. This is a solid hood if someone wants to take the time with it.
  17. I you are right, I said Lincoln but I went back to look at the air cleaner sticker and its a Mercury.
  18. Hey thanks for the reply man. You mean I should consider just going with the 429? I just figured putting that 460 crank in there was free horsepower, maybe not idk. Yea I got a book someone else recommended "how to rebuild your big block ford" or named something similar. Its pretty detailed. I do know a guy local that says he knows how to work the D0VE heads to make them flow great, something about the exhaust port I think I dunno. I would use a split duration cam. Something like this from Lunati. I am sure you can get something similar from Comp. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/lun-80460lk I prefer Quick Fuel carbs but the Summit one should work fine. 750 cfm is good. DO NOT USE A STEALTH INTAKE. An Edelbrock Perfomer RPM will have much better drivability. If you have access to a cheap stock 460 rotating assembly in good condition use it. Ford made a fuelie piston with a 15cc dish which will give you a compression ratio of around 9.5:1 with the small chamber heads with the block 0 decked. However, if you have to buy a crank and pistons I would seriously consider a packaged stroker kit. Make sure to use a pre 72 (straight up) timing set. I like the FRPP 9 way adjustable. A recurved duraspark is a good budget electronic ignition. Heads should be gone through and the valves replaced. Basic port work on the heads can be worth 30-50 hp. Thanks for the reply man! Great info. What do you mean by straight up timing set? I do know a rotating 460 local, dude wants 250 for it which I feel is a bit steep but maybe not. You saying I should reuse those pistons? Sorry for the dumb questions, learning as I go here.
  19. Hi all, Planning and mapping out my 460 build for my '73 and seeing how much I am gonna need money wise to complete it. Can you tell me your opinion on what I have so far? (71 429 out of a Lincoln, D0VE-C heads that are completely stock) COMP Cams High Energy Cam and Lifter Kits K34-227-4 - http://www.summitracing.com/parts/cca-k34-227-4?seid=srese1&gclid=CjwKEAiArqKmBRCOj_qfmuqinnYSJAAkAYwGElB1SvJLb6Og7Xk-mMC6AM--ArVx_xpSSZGMj8zKAxoCTVDw_wcB Carburetor, Summit M2008, 750 cfm, Square Bore, 4-Barrel, Manual Choke, Mechanical Secondary, with DVD, Each http://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-m08750ms Stealth Intake Manifold 429 http://www.summitracing.com/parts/wnd-8012 Hooker Headers http://www.summitracing.com/parts/hok-6115hkr Gonna get a 460 crank second hand and have it turned to replace 429 crank. No idea on pistons, going to need the machine shop to let me know if it needs bored once inspected but its a low miles block and I assume its ok. Would rather stay with standard bore. Looking at those "sealed power" rebuild kits on summit for like ~500 (seems high to me) I want a mean but completely drivable car. Am I over spending somewhere? This stuff is adding up fast. Would this be a good build? What am I not thinking about (besides ignition system and of course the pistons)?
  20. we'll, the more I look at it the more the third scoop looks like shit. I am gonna get the hood anyway who knows. Ill post some pics when I do
  21. The ONLY one I have seen that looks ok to me is in this pic on a Australian (falcon?) But I don't know what scoop that is or what it might look like from the side, but every other one I have seen looks dumb.
  22. I have a really really nice ram air hood I found and need. The guy wants next to nothing for it, but a hole has been cut in the middle (done neatly) so that a third scoop can be added. The guy before had a some sort of monster motor and needed the extra room for his air cleaner. It had a boss style hood scoop on it at one time but not now, its just a hood with the hole. I am having a hard time imaging what this would look like and what scoop I could put on it (and im really worried its going to look stupid. Can that be patched?) Anyone have a pic of a 71-73 where someone installed a scoop in the middle?
