1972 Mustang Grandé
Originally:
My dad bought the car in January 1972.
302-2V, FMX, 3.00 Gears.. Yawn!
Sometimes I kick myself for going Modified rather then Restoration,
but this beast is allot more fun to drive!

Now (most of the heavy lifting done by: Maximum Service Center, Wheat Ridge, CO):
347 Stroker block (Probe Industry), Tremec-HD 5spd, 3.89 Richmound Gears.
Petal assembly from old part Mustang, Centerforce II clutch.
Mark Williams 9" rear-end w/ MasterLine 31 spline axles, Auburn limited slip, 3.5" aluminum Drive Shaft w/ loop.
Edelbrock Performer RPM Heads, 2.02 intake valves @ 170cc; 1.60 exhaust valves, 10.5:1 CR.
Edelbrock Performer Intake w/ Holley 600cfm 4bbl.
CompCam 280H, 230 @ 0.050, 0.512 lift, 2000-6000 RPM w/ rough idle.
Headman Ceramic Shorty headers.
MagnaFlow dual 2.5" exhaust.
MSD-6AL ignition w/ MSD billet distributor and MSD 2-step.
Ford Front Disc Brakes, one "smart" thing I've done.
Calvert Racing CALTRACS.
Sub-Frame Connectors.
Edelbrock Nitrous 100,125,150,200 shot. I've never loaded more than 150hp, 100 is safe.
Holley Gerotor 150 fuel pump, recirculating w/ regulator.
Aluminum radiator and electric fan.
100 amp Alternator w/ internal regulator.
American Racing TorqThrustD 15" wheels (remember Bullet?).
Shown here with Mickey Thompson 235/60-15 "ET Street Radial" Rear Tires.
Cruising 55-60 mph gets about 17 MPG in 5th gear. (if your nice)
Best 1/4 mile ET @ Bandimere (5850 ft elevation) 12.97, consistent low 13's.

See msc or my profile pages 3-12 to see from reality of condition "of body" from moment of acquisition(upon stripping the layers of mud, tar, undercoating) then process of rebuilding it, from ground-up. Stage I. Stage II is the rebuilding of the engine. Stage III is process of tweaking body panels to repainting. (Stage II & III will be entered my profile/msc gallery in weeks to follow.

Nice looking ride. THe engine looks like a good install and I like some of the touches, like the fuel pressure guage.

Why the 100amp alternator? Do ya run a big stereo? Everything else seems performace oriented, seems like that might drag on the motor a little.

Nice car. There is nothing wrong with going modified instead of original in my book!
Nice color btw! ;-)
