I dont think I have ever seen this kit on a Mustang..
When I was a teenager I would occasionally go by FiberFab's yard and see what they had sitting outside and actually got one of their bodies for a dune buggy I built. I never saw one of those Mustang kits but remember them advertising them and I think (???) Hot Rod magazine (or one of the other car mags) might have done an article on them...
Just send in the dollar for the brochure and get the info from the source already!
I sent in for my 50 cent X-ray glasses the other day
Ya think that add might be a tad out of date there John ? It does look interesting though, never seen one in person.
I don't see a date! They still make Mustangs too.
Kind of gives the front end a 'Mustang II' vibe. I wonder how the aerodynamics are, especially on a fastback?
Probably similar to a King Cobra Torino Andy. More down force on the front that needs a big spoiler on the rear to equal out what the front produces.
It looks too much like the King Cobra Torino and Cyclone Spoiler II to be a coincidence, don't you think? Hmmm.....
For that Mustang that will actually hit 150+?
Design-wise, I think it would work better on a fastback. Everything aft of the cowl is pretty squared off on the coupe, whereas the fastback would pick up the curvature of the front end.
Never saw that kit on a Mustang, but there were a number of these running around from a local dealer.
Hopefully the number is not more than 1.
Man, if you could move the core support forward, you'd be able to fit a 302 or 351W under that hood.
Yeah, I can see that. It'd be interesting to drive; I'd love to drive the King Cobra Torino.
The only reason I remember the Pangra was there was a Pinto wagon with a 302 and the Pangra nose that lived at a local upholstery shop. Very sporty little critter. That and the V8 Monzas, V8 LUV trucks, a good number of Triumph Tigers all out causing an appropriate amount of trouble.
Probably get your rocks off like everyone else that has driven it. Steers rather docile until you get past 180 then you can feel the rear start to lighten up. Getting to speed is the trippy part. 500+ cubes flatten your eyeballs in the low range then you do what ain't natural at about 120 mph, let off the gas and hit the clutch, pull the lever on the side of the trans hump back toward you to set the two speed rear for warp speed, then slam the shifter back into first gear and row thru the gears like you did the first time. First time is close to inducing heart failure, then on it's way too fun bordering on doing something really illegal and not getting caught. Yeah, it be interesting is an understatement.
I've seen 302's in Pinto's, without that ugly mod.
And so have I usually butchered up, because only the Mustang II 302's accessories are short enough to not require the radiator relocation.
