He-Ho! What a tidal wave of torque!!

Seriously though...is this car still in the project phase, or is it a runner? If it's a runner, enough with the pictures, let's get to the videos.

It's still a project, working on rewiring the car currently between looking for interior trim part for the b &c pillars. Went to install the mini hy-tork started yesterday and found out it doesn't fit, so gotta track a proper one down and get it shipped out.

Joel, u guessed it, there is a 9" pumpkin in the back! Soon I hope to b able to find the weak link (end of year, I'm in the south (Wellington Fl), not really but it's untested so I can only expect some sort of set back. As for the front end the struts are threaded/shortened collars with spacers, it's been near 25 years. Don't remember a whole lot from back then. Right now it's git her on the road mentality and go from there.

There'll be teething issues, but I doubt you're going to bust a 9" with a FSB.

It's a good-looking setup. What's next?

Based on my experience with the design/builder who happened to donate the HP 289 in the engine compartment, teething pains are in between the engine and the ground. We experienced a lot of teething on his Stang which he gave it up. So hopefully he BEEFED everthing up for a street-able version of his dreams! I only hope cause when it hits the ground I want it to continue to rip asphalt and not car parts!

What's next?
Mating a 70 SUN with a Ford drive train (wiring in particular) thers's nooooooo plug and play! Daily contact with a noted aftermarket vendor, it's a work in progress. Then there is the issue of buying parts decades ago and just finding out that they don't fit. S--t o-well, young and stupid I guess or maybe it's just a southern thing (at the time Ft. Laud. Fl.) now Wellington Fl not far from conception!
Anyway, the plans are to assault the asphalt by years end if not sooner!
