Edelbrock has the "Performer" for your application : )
Check out the Jegs or Summit catalogs (online), or practically any
Classic Mustang parts vendor who handles more than straight
restoration. In fact, go straight to http://www.edelbrock.com/
Auto Parts link. When you get there you can browse, download their
catalog, etc. Take a look at their carbs and matching intake
manifolds. You could even go Edelbrock EFI for your classic, which
would be great for mpg, quick response, etc.
Keep your foot out of it and the 4V level doesn't kick in. You're
running, essentially, a 2V except when you kick it. That will help
quite a bit.
As for plug wires, I'm running Ford Racing with Pertronix Ignitor II
aftermarket. I think it's a matter of personal choice. I could have
picked about anything, but I like the blue color. : )
