So where does the consortium stand with regards to the 289 Roadster replica from Ross Henry and SPF?


Asking for a friend  ;)

I'm kinda' tired of scoops, side pipes and roll bars. I can dig it but I'm leaning towards the 427 or the USRRC/FIA 289'S. We're all a little picky?  ;)

Maybe a PLAIN Jane Contemporary?

I'm appreciating the cleanliness of the CSX3300 cars these days.

Too late, the red Contemporary in the background is on a ship to France  ;D

I thought about it but I'm deaf in my left ear from sidepipes. I'm tired of stripes to but I could learn to live with a 427? Go figure?  ;D

Where are the Autocraft AC MKIV pricewise? Original builder with modern - well 80s - 5.0? Motor Trend was testing one and I had it for a couple days so I could undo the damage done when a Hot Rod editor happened to put it over a curb - ala late model Mustang leaving Cars & Coffee. It was a nice civilized package sold by Ford dealers with a warranty.
