I received some update pics from Ed and Chris, and the 521/C6 is officially in there. Cool There's alot more room than I expected. They also hung the doors and trunk. It shouldn't be much longer now, until we bring her home. I resized the original pictures sent.

Thanks Rick!

I got a call from Ed that my new headers wouldn't fit, after the body was on the chassis. After a brief moment of "what am I going to do now", Ed called me later that night, and told me he made roll cages and custom headers, and had a solution for me. Ed and Chris are something else, and they made me a happy camper. Enjoy the pics he sent me. The tubes he has in the pics are for mock up, and when the tube comes in, he'll bend it to match and weld. While I was on the phone with Ed, Chris made sure I could take the valve covers off without trimming anymore. Where are you going to get customer service like that?

Thank you so much guys. They really are some fiberglass pro's, but I'm sure Danno will run right with them. king My Dad and I got the best news last night; she's ready to pick up!!!! cheers It's my off day tomorrow, so we are taking advantage of the sunny day and bringing her home from CT. They had to do some more re-working of the glass, to make a flat "platform" for the gas pedal, and make some room for the brake pedal and steering column. We sure did test the skills of these builders. They put this 521/C6 in, with everything else on the car in the stock location, with just a 2.5" firewall recess. The radiator is in the stock location above the crossmember. Some guys will stretch the chassis 3" or put the radiator in front of the crossmember for clearance. I will post a bunch of pictures when we load it up, bring it home, and when she's safe in my Dad's garage. It's like Christmas Eve for this guy. Very Happy santa

She's here! We picked it up yesterday and she's home safely in my Dad's garage. cheers I called my Dad this morning, and he cleaned all the dust off the body and engine, so I'm going to take some pics in his garage, with more details. I can't believe the job Ed from New Age Motorsports did modifying the #4 and #8 exhaust tubes on the Sanderson headers I bought. The doors shut solid, and you'd never know it was a fiberglass body. It has a roll up rear window, the push out windshield, and he re-did the fiberglass for the brake/gas pedals since it was too tight of an area after the last pictures I posted. Ed and Chris at New Age Motorsports are simply amazing! king The windshield was the only thing that wasn't there yet to bring home, so the one on there is an original 32 that he had on for display. I'm glad my brother Joe let us borrow his rear rims and tires from his 47 Ford truck, because I like the look of the 31" tall tires, and the 2.5" backspacing. I'm going to sell the 29" tall Hoosiers I bought on Craigslist, and get 31X15X15 tires for the back. Those front tires are Crown Victoria 26" tall spare tires, so we like that height, but will go slightly wider on those, but not too much. I think that will give it the right look. It will have plain steel rims with chrome center caps...not sure on the chrome ring around the rim....Old school look. Cool The radiator is a 4 core aluminum with an electric fan/shroud combo. It's rated to cool 550+HP, so this should do the trick. I LOVE this car and it's my Dad's dream come true. I still can't believe that we were able to sell everything we already had, and only had to come up with about $3000 to buy it. I won more than that in Atlantic City last year. Very Happy





















BTW, Crown Victoria's make nice tow vehicles, but Ford doesn't want to let you know that. My Vicky tows this like it's not even there! Cool I put 650lbs on the tongue with the weight distribution setup, and it handles like it's on rails. Never any trailer sway, and with the electric brakes, it stops on a dime. I have a nice plug in for the winch, and a 7pin RV connector on the hitch. I have heavy duty coil over rear shocks, heavy duty front shocks, and added the rear sway bar. You can't be too much overkill when it comes to safety. Cool

Thanks Mike and Rick. No fenders, I'm using the 3" Dynomax ultra flow's from the Fairlane, and it will come out the back. That drop down off the header, will go under the chassis. I can uncork the headers if I want to. I have a pair of cutout extensions that bolt to the collector, and there's a diverter to shoot it down when not uncorked. The interior will be cloth, because I don't want leather. We will get a local guy to do that, who does nice work. It's going to be the same color as my Crown Vic, which is Norsea Blue. Cheap Ford factory paint. It will eventually get a hood, and some sort of side to meet with the headers, in case we have to drive in the rain on long trips. Yes, it will be driven almost everyday with my Dad retired, and I can't wait to cruise the highway's of Jersey every chance I get. We found a place that makes a stainless stock looking tank, but it holds 20 gallons. I will have them weld in the big NPT bungs, for the -12 line for the ProStar 500 pump and return. This is going to be a cool project... Cool I will keep this thread going.

You got it Harold! Hopefully next year if there's another bash, if not, I'll always be looking for a road trip. Very Happy

Thanks again guys! My Dad told my other brother Jimmy, that he woke up early today, and ran out to the garage to make sure the car was really there and it wasn't a dream. LOL

Jeff - We are thinking around 2600lbs or so. Keep checking in, because I'm going to put the whole build on this thread. Very Happy

Dan - This car will never hook up. Laughing We are going to put a 31x12.5x15 Hoosier Pro Street tire on there, but I'm sure I'll pick up a set of big drag radials and extra rims for the track times that we do go. It's going to be mostly a cruiser. I'm posting more closeups of the glass work, which I know you can appreciate. Ed and Chris at New Age are great!

Here's some pics all dusted off in Dad's garage.....

We received the tires today, and they look great! I took off my brother's wheels/tires yesterday, and finally have the rim size we need to give it the look we like. I just reversed the snow tires/rims from my Crown Victoria, to keep on the car to roll it in and out. LOL Here's our new tires. Hoosier Pro Streets 31x12.5x15 for the rear, and 26x7.5x15 for the front. Cool





I'm hoping Early Wheel can make a reverse 15x10 with a 2" backspace. Their site lists it can do it with 2.5", but I sent Jason an email to see if it can be at 2". This will give us that "look" we like, with the new rubber.

No it won't Danno! Very Happy I'm getting more of a thrill of how excited my Dad is for this thing. I'm so glad we both sold everything to get this. The fun has just started. I'll just keep adding to everything we do. cheers
