Fun finds!

A big over-grown 2nd (3rd?) gen '72 Mustang would really dip into the 9's??? That's pretty damb qick, especially for as late as '72!!!!!

The Mustang raced in FAST, Factory appearing stock tire. Ran a 9.84 I believe.
Pretty darn quick given tires. Car originally had a 302. Guy put in a 588 cubic inch 429 SCJ with a C4 trans. Overall, other than engine mods the car does look stock.

With your info, and now that I have sense enough to thing about it, there's no way ANY muscle car from '72 could do 9.84.

I guess the card is pretty misleading. 588 is miles from stock! :)
"Based on stock parts" I guess would be more the case?
Oh well...a small complaint for a skillfully produced casting.

Thanks 5G...awesome article.

The guy is a true Ford hero. Amazing car.

Love the lack of P.S. & P.B., and a single core radiator from a six banger. It all adds up!

Oh, and the use of a beafed up puny little C-4 fascinated me.

C4's are nice for the weight savings. My friend ran one for quite a while before switching to a powerglide.
