A friend of mine here in Fl. has run a Ford clip for years now on asphalt. He just put a new LeftHander chassis together with the Ford clip and he's been very successful running at New Smyrna Speedway and some others.

i build mods on the small gm metric frame, 68-72 chevelle frame and have built some of the front steer ford mid 80's stubbed cars. they seem to work well. i use the 12" gm impala spindles and rotors with the afco extended upper and lower ball joints in the front with tube uppers. they are a strong frame plus a wide track width. if you want to know more check out my website being built, it has most of the info you will need. any questions email me at

There's a guy out of Winona, Minnesota building "Dirt-Dueler" modifieds off of Ford front stubs. There are only a few out there right now, but I've raced against them and seen them race a few times in the last few years and have been impressed with thier performance. They're running a z-link-pullbar rear set-up, and seem to be at more of an advantage on dryslick.
The guy building them had a write-up done in the builder's issue of our sanction's racing newspaper last month. According to that, he's a former Ford motor Company chassis engineer, so I guess that's gotta be worth something.
I met him once near the end of the '99 race season..had to go apologize for nerfing him. I lifted so as not to wreck either of us..he seemed grateful for that. Seems like a nice guy and a clean racer.
Anyway, his name is Les Duellman. His ad gives 2 phone numbers.
