Blue as the eyes of Thor!
Was built in Kansas city as a raven black on red, inline six car. Sold here in Seattle. Restored and outfitted with a 289 by unknown guy in Oregon about three, four years ago. Bought by me from a guy here in Ballard (Seattle annex) this summer.
1964 Ford Falcon Futura (Blue as the eyes of Thor!)
A 289 with "ported 351" heads. What ever that entitles... Performer RPM, Holley 570cfm 'street avenger' vacuum carb and a "Eldridge engineering" (?) custom ground bumpstick that sounds wicked and runs pretty well. Will be replaced with new, known parts this winter that will double (at least) the power.
Sony 10 disc CD changer resides in the trunk with the radio/cassette controlling it and the modern speakers is hidden in the glove box. Not that I listen to it much over the nice rumble of the engine...
Springs and shocks n' stuff! All I know right now is that it got Edelbrock air shocks in the back and Monroe in the front. A one inch swaybar in the front and one of unknown diameter in the rear. Will look it all over this winter too.
Wheel and Tire
Cragar/Weld racing 'Draglite' all around. 8" wide in the rear with 3.5" backspacing, the will be replaced with 4.5" backspaced ones since the rub the tires on the outside and there is an 1.5" clearance to the spring on the inside.
