What year is the frame under that car? I always wanted to run a ford. I am a huge ford man but when I started racing chevy is what was the easiest to get into now thinking of building a ford. What chassis would you run if you had any choice. I was told that a 72 torino could be set up better then a comaro or metric. I was wondering what your thoughts where on this.

Well i have two of these now and they are both 75 Torino frames. Really i have been told that the Crown Vic frame is the best and a lot lighter than these Torinos. I was always upset at weight on these cars but with learning what to do they are fun and fast and people are amased at what they can do. I will put a pic of the car we are running currently and we will reskin it and probally sell it or use it as a back up next year. We have won several heats and B-Mains but yet to win our 1st feature but it got to be just around the corner..... Maybe tonite lol But until then we will just enjoy building these fords and having fun. This is this years car in Jan. LOL it dont look like that anymore........ How sad

Good luck on your ford, been a ford fan for a long time but run a chevy for economical reasons. Been sitting on a 70 351c motor since 74 and been dying to put it in something, mabee the tow truck.
