I think Edelbrock Performer would be fine, along with "Full MSD Ignition"

And I would include just the stuff they can't see unless its rare because of it. Like the floor shifter, they can just peek in and see that if they're interested.

I would just put your HP numbers and a basic overview of your engine - if they want things like cam specs, they can ask you. They'll know its got a serious cam in it if its making power.

I wouldn't bother with the dimensions or weight, either, but like everything, thats just me. Everything looks fine technically.

Basically, I would just list the cool mods that make it special, moreso than an intake or what pistons are in it, or that it has A/C, unless that was a rare option. Car guys will know just by looking at it most of the general stuff.

But like I said, do what you think you should on it.

i think i would put what make and say "converter". same for rear. state "rear end gear ratio 3.91" and type of rear if not stock, and whether posi or not.
ex:
converter: 10" ATI 3200 rpm stall.
rear end: 9" ford, 3.91 richmond gears w/traction lock.

I have seen some people search their build numbers and put them on also, like how many were made with that particular package, where it was made and which dealer got it first when it was new.

You may have just left it out of your post, but do you have a title? Like Year Make Model?

Just my opinoin but I would change:
Rims: Ansen Sprint A69 Rims (5 Kidney)

to

Wheels: Ansen Sprint A69 (5 Kidney)

I've always associate the word rim's with "Pimp my Ride"

Just my $.02
Just to add about the rims. they are usually called "slots" as in Slotted wheels. Stu

Not sure if build number and such apply as it’s a Starsky and Hutch Replica;

Completely forgot about title!!!

I would go with;


1976 Ford Gran Torino
Starsky & Hutch Replica

Another question;

I did not perform any of the restoration or customizations myself. The original Starsky and Hutch replica was created to order from Zebra3 in San Diego (They built four of the Starsky and Hutch show cars for the Movie), The engine and mechanical upgrades were done by Legendary Motor Cars.. Legendary Motors cars are well known around here, and their TV show “Dream Car Garage” shows regularly on Speed Channel.

So should I be mentioning the builders? Something like:

Replica created by Zebra3 of San Diego
Engine and Mechanical upgrades by Legendary Motor Cars

Or is this not a good idea? I am not sure.

Thanks!

Yeah, I think I would put that information on there... but I'm not a real car show buff so I dunno what the norm is
