Re: Little heavy
My question is WHY!!!!
the car wieghs in about 5K Lbs + -
street brakes are not for racing, any kind
also you'd be hard pressed to get bigger wheels\tires under the car
In 66 you either had a 390 or a 428 although good engines they would need a lot of work
to get max HP out of them... they are FE engines, and a build is a little more expensive
then you might think.
Not trying to sound negative, just giving you a heads up..
on the other hand, if you must use that car to go racing
I'd drop the engine and trans and get a 385 with a tremic 5 spd
drop the rear axle and install an axle out of a late 70's Lincoln or Granada
with upper and lower control arms and disc breaks...this would require some fabrication
Best of Luck
