Here is my 36 work in progress. Changed to 8ba this winter with the T-5. Can't wait to drive it and see the difference. It has been lowered a bit since the picture.

I have left the car looking stock but have added an '80 Granada rear end with a Chassis Engineering mount kit, an S10, T5 tansmission, 12 volt wiring kit, electric fan, Fenton Headers, dual exhaust, 39 pedals with a dual reservoir master cylinder, front disc brakes (ECI Kit), front sway bar (CE). I removed 2 front spring leaves, reversed the eyes, put on poly slide liners , lowered the rear end 2 inches and used 2 inch spacers on the rear wheels ( to match the width of the front wheels with disc brakes). Also I have wheel adapters so I can use the original wheels with 3" WWW radials from Diamond Back. Some of these changes are not in the posted pictures. I made these changes in order to "keep up" with our local car club on their cruises. I can now cruise comfortably (and safely) at 60 mph on our rural highways. A couple of issues to still address is excess steering wheel play and road noise. "It works for me!"

I think you screwed up a good old Ford.

Finished 30 year restoration in 2002 and my wife and I selected the colors, although not stock, we really love them.
