Thumbs up My Ford

Hi Ford Nuts

Here is my Ford.
It's taken me years to get it to here but I couldn't just let an old classic sit around and die so I gave it some heart pills.

Now I need to take the pills every time I take her out for a spin.
These old ESP's are great but Gees is it hard to find parts.

Cheers fellow ford fans

Chad,

It's a 351 bored out 30 thou
extractors , twin 2 1/4 system right through ( No petrol Tank )
Runs on straight LPG with single 425 mixer inside a Ford Shaker scoop.
Roller rockers , Crane Hi 6 ignition , 9.5 : 1 comp ( 302 CC heads )
3.23 LSD 4 pinion rear end
C10 with 2300 stall
Custom 4 core Radiator with Ecotrans water pump
170 Rear wheel Kw 14.3 at Calder 400m

Not too bad for an old clapper.
Will replace the old exhaust system soon with a full mandrel bent system with X - pipe.

Hoping to run a 14.2 or a 14.1

Cheers
