I think that car has been mentioned on here before,,,?
Ive seen another pic here with 64-5 intermingling and red as well.
I believe that was a YouTube video of a young inattentive dealer, if I remember correctly Fred.
Believe it was posted here last year (?)

Holley makes a kit.
Thanks, Boss. Found the MSD box. Edelbrock also makes Victor Jr. intake for it.
When Coyote engine came out, I thought a swap out of a wrecked Mustang GT into 1st gen Falcon would be awesome idea if ECU could be eliminated.

Ton of money for that creation. Those carb intake for the 4.6 were made near me years ago. Don't think they make them anymore.
First carbureted modular engine I've ever seen.
Is there a supplier for electronic standalone ignition to bypass ECU?

Re: 61 comet, 4dr. Stainless windshield trim pitting

I use Quick-Glo on all of my stainless and chrome after catching it on a Leno video a couple years ago. It's good stuff. They will send you samples with an order to find what formula you need. Regular, fine & ultra-fine. I ordered fine but found the original compound worked best but it is slightly a...

Lamento enterarse de su pérdida. Es posible que pueda recogerlo aquí si el estilo de la carrocería es correcto-

Re: Hello from Murfreesboro, TN

Can't go wrong with a black car with red interior, always been a favorite color combo of mine. Same here :) Had a black/red '66 Mustang & '75 Ranger F-100. Bought the wife a black/red Poncho T/A. Cool to see this one. My '63 was originally black/red until a re-paint. If I could find all of the stai...

Re: Hello from Murfreesboro, TN

Currently trying to figure out all the details and best options for upgrading the steering, I assume it's I6 parts now and should probably upgrade now to the V8 steering. Looks like V8 steering already (5 lug wheels). Assuming it's originally 260 car w/ 289 transplant? Fifth digit in the VIN would ...

Interesting article ; https://www.onallcylinders.com/2015/08/06/the-straight-scoop-exploring-the-science-behind-hoop-scoop-technology/ This part of the article is what I was referring to, in regards to 'ramming' air, John- “The amount of pressurization produced by a hood scoop varies as a function ...

Re: 1964 ram air hood

My Cyclone never had a rubber seal stapled to the core support. Although I have seen them on other cars. It may have been a difference between assembly plants. ???? That's a good question. No evidence of a seal ever installed on my radiator support as well. Have also seen both. Ford parts vendors s...

Re: 1964 ram air hood

Yea I see that Joe. coming in from the grill I'd think. these cars had a rubber seal from rad support up to the hood didnt they?. Yep, stapled onto the top of the radiator support. My hood isn't sealed on either end, why it's lifting. Hinges are in decent shape. Going to keep it that way until I ca...

Re: 1964 ram air hood

But think about the fresh air system, it isn't facing forward,yet it brings lots of air into the cabin whether or not the windows are all up or down. So I would say it is getting rammed in there too. Would be very interesting to see how much turbulence whips up between a teardrop and the cowl. Ther...

Re: 1964 ram air hood

On hoods like Mopar early B body hemi and max wedge scoops, actually don't suck in that much air to the carb the experts say but that hole cut in the hood for the scoop does let out lots of hot air. I would agree w/ that statement. A forward facing scoop only 'rams' air @ very high speeds. The main...

Re: 1964 ram air hood

I love the look of the ram air hod and I have always felt the best part of a scoop is giving the uderhood heat a way to escape! Teardrop hood scoop was used to vent heat in '64. They're running $195 @ Crites- https://critesperformanceparts.com/page7 Cool intake air supplied by ducts from inside hea...
