1969 Mustang race car that I have owned since 1970
 
Mustang is back at the shop. Need to do a lot of work getting it ready to race in A/SA or B/SA. The 428 CJ will be on the dyno later this week. I painted this in 2005 using SPI clear and it has never been waxed. It has been in an enclosed trailer for 6 years in the Florida heat. I wasn't sure what to expect when we unloaded it. After washing it the paint still looks great.

Hubert Platt told me he had a 1969 body for sale with no drive train. It was a Q code that had been used as a Boss 302 test car. It was built in Oct 1968 and had no quarter scoops, had the front fenders rolled, blacked out hood, deck lid, taillight panel and around the headlights. The quarter panels were made with no brackets for the scoops. Hubert saved it from the crusher

This was the first race after I turned it into a Super Stocker in July 1971 before paint.

I think it looks better without the wheels and tires used for storage

Picked up 12 hp with Harland Sharp rockers. Peak hp was at 5850 rpm now it has 512 at 6200 and 509 at 6500. We will be testing the PI aluminum intake next.

Pretty neat car. I worked on the stick shift test rollers at the end of the final line at Dearborn Assembly when that car was built.

Fitting Kirkey seats is not just a bolt in. The problem is the roll bar design won't let me have the seat back tilted enough so I will need to use a different steering wheel with less dish. We are mounting the Kirkey brackets to the stock seat tracks that will need to be modified.

I have that seat in my 68 coupe, but my cage looks to be about 4 inches farther back than yours. I had to fabricate a four inch riser to set the Kirkey mounts on to get the height right. I used the Kirkey back brace. Quite an upgrade from the Jegs poly seats I used to run when I first built the car.

Good to see you dust this off. Keep us posted on your progress.

Modified seat track. This is the passenger side test fitting on a customers 69 Mustang we are restoring.
