    Update: Got the driveshaft back and in. Fit like a glove! Also re-shaping the shifter so it won't hit my bench seat. Took a tubing cutter and going to have it Tig welded. Working on the exhaust today....have to re-route around the new trans bracket.

    Looks like the shifter I had in my 67 Mustang. Is it?

    It's one I got off ebay...supposedly for a 63-65 Falcon. But it is similar to many Ford products of that era. Mustang, Galaxie, Falcon, etc.

    I was wondering where you went since you haven't posted since last year 12/31/10. Looking forward to more updates.

    Putting a cut-out on each exhaust...waiting for the dropped tie-rod ends to get here from Speedway. They were on back-order, but shipped last week. Need the extra 2" to clear the exhaust extensions and to clear the pan. Ready to drive it after that to check out the 4-speed. After a couple of weeks, I'll install the blower and see how it goes. I have a 4-barrel (Holley 390) on first, then a Holley 600, and finally, 3x2's to set up. Should be interesting! I'll send more pix as it gets closer to installation of the blower.

    Sorry to be so quiet recently....got a new part-time job with a big box DIY store on weekends. Also working on another project requiring a patent attorney (not automotive related), so my truck project has been put on the back burner. I will try to finish the exhaust system next week and get it back on the road. Thanks for your patience.

    Here is a picture for your amusement. I flamed this car about 12 years ago. When I got the pictures back, I couldn't believe I had bought black & white film at Walgreens! I didn't think they even made it for general distribution! I liked it for this car though... so I didn't take any more pics! :-)

    This guy made his own manifold and adapter to a C-4 trans.

    Update on the truck. Got the engine fired up and the tranny shifts into gear (still on the jackstands, though). Hooked up the exhaust system and today I'll hook up the cut-out cables and drop the truck on the ground for a drive. I'll be installing the blower in June...want to drive it some since it's been down for months! Pix shows the driver's side exhaust and the oxygen sensor for the A/Fgauge.Oxygen sensor.JPGs side exhaust.jpg

    I can't believe I missed this thread. Sweet looking set up. I can't wait for the youtube vid of the first burn out.

    Yea...I've got to go to work now (my three day week - Fri, Sat, Sun) but I get 4 days off to work on the truck. I have the Edelbrock heads with the big chambers, the stud kit, copper gasket set and just need to get the 6-rib belt when I mount the blower. Need to hook up various gas and vacuum lines to finish up. I'm really close now. Just need to drive and see how the T-10 does. Later...

    OOOOOoooo.. I wish I had that schedule! Now I'm on the road for 2 weeks minimum! Then Home for a week. It kills the car building time!

    The truck is on the ground again....put in reverse and 1st gear and it moves. Haven't taken it on the road yet, but that will come tomorrow. Probably need to adjust the clutch a little....grinding when going into reverse. Cutouts sound good and loud....little trouble with the control cables, but hey, it's a truck!
