Cool site, too bad there was no pic of the 292 Yblock powered 87 Mustang However, there is a pic of the 11 second Y block Maverick, & 9 second roadster.I made my first ever 1/4 mile runs in my 57 Ford Sedan Delivery back in the early 70`s, later the first engine I ever rebuilt was the 272 from the same car. Thanks for posting it.

Was hoping to get the Mustang to Columbus this last Labor Day, but he didn't make it.
Have also heard of a 30 something coupe in the Houston area running a Y-Block, waiting for pictures from him.

Seems like some of the best Y-block info around...gives me the drive to hurry up and get the 312 in my '57 rebuilt and add one of those adapters for an AOD. That's a great site you got there Jim...I found out about it from Rod & Custom mag.

We have a racer up here with a pretty famous Y block drag car from the late 60`s-early 70`s. It is a blown 312 57 Ford Custom business coupe, which was called the "Legal Cheater", & was owned by Larry Walker out of California. In the early 70`s, it was sold to the fellow that still owns it, although the last time I seen it race was 1975 or 76.As far as I know, it sits in exactly the same condition now, as it did then. Very cool car, I hope he brings it out again soon.
