1972 Gran Torino Sport 429
My Dad bought this car about 20 years ago. It was set up to drag race at
the track. He bought strictly for racing. It was races for about 5 years
and has sat in a garage for the 15 years. Well today she moved on her own
I had to replace some brake lines, clean out the gas tank and a lil bit of
motor work. Some Exhaust, tires,
wheels license and insurance, it will be ready for some Sunday cruising.

**BEST 11.61 @ 121mph, 1.69 60ft all at 3800lbs!!! Had the mph for a bottom
eleven and still didnt have all the bugs worked out. Didnt get to turn the
wick up to much, only ended up shifting at 7200, though the motor makes
peak power at 7600, so there is much more left in it. NEW COMBO : all new
427, G-Force GF4A 4 speed, etc.
