Welcome aboard Intergr8. I have to say that Fords that look like Capris, only muscular, are some of my favourite looking classic cars

Not sure if you mean the Mustang is based on the Capris or the Capris is based on the Mustang which neither is true by the pic you posted not to knock you but wanna get the info straight... that is actually an Australian XC 2 Door COBRA V8 Coupe/Hardtop, (1978) - limited production run coupe at recent "All FORD day" these are Falcons not Capris...And it is from what ive seen that the Falcons were based on the Mustang...
This is the website i found info at...

Ya...I know. You're way too young to actually "know" the original "angels."

I never said that the picture of that Falcon was a Capri; I sent it as an example of another Ford besides your 1971 Mustang that resembles a Capri. I wasnít saying that Mustangs are based on Capris or visa versa; I see Mustangs as being like Capris and not the other way round because Capris are more familiar to me. Thatís because they used to be built in England whereas no muscle cars have ever been built where I live. I already knew about the Falcon in my attachment but thanks for the additional information.

This is an update to a post I made in January under a different user name...

My T-bird has gone 15.2's@91mph with the LSC engine, off-road h-pipe, dyno max super turbo mufflers and dumps, stock replacement spark plugs, k&n air filter, junkyard spark plug wires, a horribly clogged fuel filter, a trans that decides to just drop out of first gear 2 or 3 times under hard acceleration, as well as stock "open" rear with 2.73 gears(not 2.76 as I posted previously) and skinny 215/70R14's....oh yeah, my cyl #7 injector is stuck wide open all the time too!

I've since replaced the fuel filter, wires, installed Autolite AR133 plugs, and removed the fenderwell air intake silencer. I've noticed an immense improvement in performance as well as efficiency...I felt the biggest difference with the AR133's, MM&FF showed hp improvements of up to 20hp over other plugs.

I think she'd dip into the high 14's once I replace my cyl #7 injector...especially with my nifty new 255/60R15's...when I get some chassis dyno time in I'll post my results.

Finaly i get to meet some nice stang owners. I have a 66' mustang fastback with a 460 Big block with dual double pump Holley 4-barrels. We added a 32 cu in. blower. It has a Dana-spicer 4-speed manual limited slip racing kit. My dad bought it for me when i was 15, and we worked on it together until i was 16. It has so much power it's illegal to drive on the street where i'm from, so i have never drove it yet. I also convinced my dad to give me his 76' falcon when i was 23. Just got it painted cherry red (the original color). It has a 302 BOSS and dual headers. Single four barrel carb and posi-trak rear. Not sure what else it has but i got alot of interior and engine work to do. It sat for 10 years in the back yard. I am going to keep the detachable 8-track player in it though. There are alot of Ford mustang owners in my hometown a town picnic looks like a muscle cars convention. Last summer there were 17 mussys (including mine) and 1 '67 Shelby GT that my uncle bought when it first came out, under 34,000 miles and all by him. Not to bad for a poulation of about 250 people. The Shelby sits next to his '65 Vett (about 23,500 miles). They still have the hint of the new car smell. I'm trying to get a Shelby GT next.

I highly doubt you have an original Boss 302 in a '76 falcon....an original Boss 302 engine is probably worth twice it's weight in gold, that and I'm sure it would be nestled safely and securely between the fenderwells of a 69 Boss 302 'stang. Unless daddy is makin' 351C head to 302 block kits or found a swap kit.

Not sure what he did but he owns his own auto shop and lots of Ford engines went through there. There is a drag strip near our town. I know that it had a inline six as original equipment, wish i had that instead. The BOSS was put in later. My uncle dose engine rebuilds for racers. The big problem I have is the front end is heavy with the 302. It has air bags on the back to give it the lifted look thinking of splicing and putting bags on the front to ballance the wieght. I'm sure the 302 was a kit of some kind or built to be one. He says it's a BOSS. I find it ironic for him owning a shop the car wasted away in the back yard. That is why I am trying to fixx it up.

Green Demon

I got a 73 Mustang Grande with a 351 Cleveland and C-6. Original block and tranny. Switched out the 2v heads for a set of the 4v's. Got the others sitting around still. New comp cam bump stick, roller rockers, forged pistons, holley 4v, Edelbrock Performer intake (351 Torker intake waiting to get put on). MSD blaster 2 ignition with a Crane Capacitive Discharge box. New NASA hood awaiting ram air kit. 2500 stall converter. 9" rear, detroit locker, 4.11:1 gears. Weld Racing wheels. Hoosier rubber. Classic green gold paint. But with the body work, it's gonna go to lime gold. And some new vinyl for the roof.
