Trunk body's are nice I ran one with the trunk just wired down and got 5 ferniest out of it I think. I got a hatchback in the field now waiting to be built we'll see how it does soon. Trunk bodies seem to wanna bend a lil funny around the rear window support when the back start to fold up
It's the only compact I ever built, but I learned a lot off of here, and off of a friend. A good 2.3 with a carb ,c-4 trans and an 8 inch with 4.62 gears and a mini spool. Flat stacked the leafs, and put a pre ran 76 impala front bumper on it. I put a hard a$$ cage in it with a gas tank protector and roll over bar. I tied the roll over bar into the front leaf hangers so they wouldn't blow out. This winter we built a motor protector/cradle/trans protector for it. i ran it twice with one win. Traded it off, and another win. It's getting ready to run again next week. I'm no expert, but i'd be glad to help
I am working on a hatch model right now...what are some ideas for the hatch? Take it off? Weld what I can then beat the bottom of the hatch and the tailight panel to the floor and put a bar from there to the roof?
NOT-C JO - stands for you hope to "Not see jo" with your old lady.....enjoy thinking about that one...........
Mustangs are great first cars...it might have an 8in in it stock..get some gears and a spool.. also i build a good gage...what your rules allow. Also i ran a hatch it had a 2.8 v6 and it held up great and still runs good. The tranny can be a couple different ones all not horrible. Ive ran the stock bumper and a different one and had better luck with the stock one; totally up to you. I didnt hit with tbe back so dunno what to do to it sorry. Good cars though and their "BUILT FORD TOUGH" (:
