1962 Ford Falcon
« on: March 22, 2009, 05:54:37 PM »
I'll start this off with some pictures of my falcon.


This is what I was working on this weekend...


The engine is a 1972 standard bore 302 block with stock ford 5.0 HO pistons from an 89 GT mustang. The heads are TFS Twisted wedge aluminum and a Blue Thunder(cobra replica) dual quad intake with holley 450's. The car has a toploader 4 speed trans. The rear is not in the car yet but it will be 9" ford with detroit locker. I really hope to have it on the road this year and start to enjoy it.

Hey John,Diggin' that intake BIG TIME!

If bigger is better,then too much is JUST RIGHT

No such thing as over carburation...just not enough motor!

It will definitely not be over carbureted Don. It's getting two Holley 450 Mechanical secondary carbs. Should be just right! I may even mill off the choke horns for a few more cfm(900cfm isn't enough!).

had to notch the ford pistons a little for the TW  heads


George, does your car have the same optional knobs on the dash as mine?
