Don - just wondering what your opinion was on that GT-E hood scoop is - do you think it might have come originally with that?

My X code G also had a GT-E hood scoop and I meant to take if off and see if it was an original GT-E scoop and wondered if some G’s might have come with them.

It was damaged many years ago and all that was reproduced at that time was the GTE scoop seen here. Also note the exhaust tip$ and G center cap$ are missing. It does not come with the 67 air cleaner shown but rather the correct 68 still in need of $norkel, $ tube and heat $hield.

I like this car a lot. What more have you done besides the gas lines/tank/fuel pump to make it a runner (if anything)? And can I saw again how much I enjoy your videos? :sunglasses: It wasn’t that long ago I did all that work on on of my Mustangs, and having your lift looks kind of like a miracle – especially since it’s not quite as easy as it used to be for me, crawling on the ground under the cars these days, high-lift jack stands or not! And I’m envious how easy you make getting all the clamps and the rubber lines off…my knuckles all have scars from twisting and pulling and yanking, only to have something finally break free and a chunk of meat gets taken off my hand from slamming into some sharp metal protrubance nearby. :imp:

If you aren’t bleeding from at lest three good scrapes, then something must be wrong. At least that is the way it works for me. I can look at my hands and identify different projects by the scars that were left behind.

There’s definitely a little editing that goes on, to make thigns flow a little better… no sense in making a 3 hour video showing the full struggle to get the fuel pump out :laughing:

This one is for sale again… Contact me for info.

Is this still available?
