1967 Mustang Questions

My little bro is thinking about purchasing a 1967 Mustang with a built 302 C code in it and a 4 spd manual. The motor 1970 Mexi. block tanked bored 40 over decked and honed roller setup, lunati cam, high lift racing cam, weiand intake, accel coil, reworked 4v heads, headers, 650 Edelbrock carb, velocity stack, dynomax exhaust. What kind of estimated horsepower should this car be turning and what kind of time should it run in the 1/4?

Hows the clutch? What gear in the rear?

Motor wise sounds like you should have about 350HP at the crank. depending on his driving ability, how hard he launches at the track, and gear, and how good his tranny/clutch are, I would say he should see low 13s. Maybe 12s if he is a good driver and has good stuff to back the motor.

so, whats the gear ratio? 3:55? 3:27? I think with either gear, you are gonna see low 13s, high 12's. Tires mean alot too at the strip. If he is gonna want to launch hard, he better get some drag radials,

or add a "second stick" to that drive line, and get a transfer case and a new axle up front. hehee

The car only has 76,000 miles on it and the engine and transmission was just rebuilt this year. The interior has been restored and the car was just painted last year. Anybody know how much is this car worth?

Well, its probably got a 3;27 or 3;55 in it. Value? I dont sit highly on the "value" of cars that some people say. It depends on the person wanting the car. Its value is only as high as you wanna pay for it. But, I would say 10K-15K for it probably is not asking too much, depending on the quality of the paint job, and the interior.

If the car was originally a V8 car, 4spd, and ONLY 76k miles... Don't beat the he!! out of it. By all means, enjoy it. But don't jack it up. Every time I see some failed attempt at making "Eleanor" I wanna cry. If that is the intent, get a 6-popper and cut it up.
-Drive it, drag it, restore it. Just don't ruin it.
