Currently my 66 sits at 23 3/4" up front and 25" in the rear.
Tires are a 225 50-15 up front and 225 60-15 in the rear.

Ride height will be changing soon with the addition of new headers

Dang.... That car in the above post looks like one of those Miata-Mustang conversions!

25" in the front. 27" in the rear.... but I've cut out the rear wheelwells a little to fit a 275/60/15 tire.... so the rear number isn't really valid. Front tires are 165/15 VW Bug tires, which are around 25" tall.

My car still has the mushy 40 year old stock springs on the front. I used to have stiffer ones on there, and for STREET duty with all the curvy roads here, they were a major improvement.
