Very nice. I like some of the details.

Your upper radiator hose/t-stat housing look different than most Clevelands I see.

@all: ThanksCool!

@will e: Yeah, the t-stat housing is self made that matches up with the modified t-stat and the big FoMoCo 24" radiatorSmile (originally he came with a 20" radiator when he had the 351W)

I have a 67 XR7 that is a one of two car, by color combination, a 68 Cougar that has become a real hot rod,
but my favorite is also my 69. It is sitting in Colorado, waiting for me to finish the engine, after I had all the body and paint work done.
