AEGIS43, read your whole thread, sorry for your loss. she lives on inside. beautiful build. i too have an obsession with that car. i'm going thru a 75 rs and putting a 72 front end on it. not trying to copy you. but paying homage to the movie. my daughter got me the movie at christmas,saw it back in the 70's. ive been wanting that car forever, now doing a basket such as you leaving my tail panel 75 though. food for thought that new block you got. the 10 / 20 cast into the back means its a 10/20 block 10% nickel and 20% tin or the other way around memory fails. that means you have a harder more durable block. you'll be able to spin her up with more confidence. also if you would be so kind would you please send me in the right direction for that big block hood scoop ? and if possible a picture underside of your hood so i know how to cut it. i bought the car with a hole in the hood already and a missing 69 mustang scoop if that tells you anything. thanks in advance the oldman.... p.s. fantastic build thread . you have given me inspiration to keep at it.
