#36 It's a gawd damn thing of beauty
s plain english, how do you look for sites which fit a few things i want to find about? Really does any person figure out how to Read sites as a result of topic or even whatsoever with writer?
#22 I like!
you needed every bit of that 429 to get that car moving,those were very large and heavy, I had a '56 Chevy w/a Small Block that ate those things for breakfast… but that same engine in a Mustang/Mach1 was a World Beater.
The 71 429 mustang and the 70 -71 429 torino weighed about the same.
429SCJ torino was a very potent under rated car as car mags of the time were very biased. They had to be GM needed the edge.
Never knew that car combination existed. They don't make enough fun variations in cars now At least that are affordable!
Your first mistake was in buniyg a Ford. They are not reliable. Their truck line is much better than their car line. Escorts are notorious for problems. Anyway, when temperatures are that cold, it could be that the cables are frozen. If you had someone recenty work on the car and they had to remove the shifter trim, they could have twisted the cables, which would cause you to not be able to shift. Either way, I would contact a reliable mechanic. Good luck.
My boyfriend has a '70 Cobra Torino 429 4 speed drag pack car that is gold that he has had for 12 years and drives around. There is a '68 Merc Cyclone GT 390 car in the backyard that is next to be done. Havin fun in IA.
It is a true American muscle car, but sadly, those are rare nowadays. Back in those days, it is fashionable to have the windshield replaced with an even thicker one like them bullet proof plates. Attribute it to the related gang violence of seeing a muscle car.
