    Neat little car...

    I'd have been more impressed if it went say 6.70s... A friend I raced with has a '88 Sport Bird, that with a 331 runs 6.90s in the 1/8mi(I believe 6.89 best)... Yeah it has lighter seats, glass cowl hood and missing power options, but still has full dash, power sunroof etc... Has cage and no doubt still weighs 3K+ lbs...

    1969 Fairlane Cobra 428CJ 4-Speed

    1972 Comet GT - 306 C4

    Impressive transformation, yet still a "sleeper". Was the sedan a donor of some sort? Is the coupe using a narrowed 9" or dana (swapped a 5 lug for the original Mitsubishi 4 lug)? Sounds like a fun car, without needing a cage.

    I believe the rear is a 4.73?? something along that line
    I was misleading the thread,,
    the guy traded a mod'ed truck for the complete blue colt and a fully running stock 4door colt of the same year.
    I wanted to show the idea of "before" and "After".

    notice the gas tank access has been removed and blended, nice work everywhere except the Elec water pump,, needs another brace,,, small stuff
