Higpockets (new guy) 63 Fairlane 427" 351W based stroker 4 speed. Most of the work was done by the owner. Maybe he'll stop by and fill in the details.

I've never been stupid enough to get in the car with the boy, but I have seen a few guys comeback from a "road test" looking somewhat pale......

High pockets,

That's an awesome ride! Very nice!!

Why do you call yourself "highpockets"? You must be generous. I have lowpockets, and short arms when the check arrives.

Highpockets is one of those "walk softly and carry a big bump stick" kinda guys. The workmanship on the car is outstanding.

I left finger nail imprints on his seat, dash, and arm rest/door handle. No rollbar or cage to hold on to. A 600hp or more 427 with a 4spd on the street has that effect on me Helluva ride that was! Thanks again Doug D)

I had no idea you had such a hot engine in that car!

Sounds like a GREAT combo!

Sounds pretty exactly like I'd spec out a stroked 351W for street/strip duty. I'd like to see it at the strip on a set of slicks! My car is enough of a handful on the street without the nitrous... Yours is making as much or more power without the bottle as mine did WITH it.

Has Kent tried talking you into installing a Dominator yet? It would probably be good for power, but they are not supposed to be very street friendly. That cam and compression just SCREAM... "turn the bottle on!"

Good Luck!

I have an out of the box 9375 (1050 cfm)on the 63 557". It's terribly sloppy with even the stock jets in it. I think they were 90s. I usually run around a 95 or 96 at the track. REAL sloppy!

But by playing with it I found if I just run itty bitty 84s in the primaries it runs great on the street. I leave the fat ones in the rear for WOT.

I ran it on the chassis dyno with the "street" jets and it was down about 30 hp, but it's hardly noticeable on the street.

I wouldn't try the Dominator just yet because he has no cage in that car at all and it is in the low tens as it sits with some slicks but no roll bar or cage Once he gets a cage in there then I want him to come to NY where we can dial it in of the bottle and on the bottle and also try my 9375 HP Dominator to see if it helps or not. It would also be a cool match race between Dougs Fairlane and my car. Maybe both running low 9s side by side on small hits of nitrous.

Are you coming to Woodward this year Mike?

I've ridden in the car as well...Highpockets was just fooling around rolling into the throttle and short shifting at 6000rpm...but it is definitely a strong unit, absolutely had my attention. Really a nice street car, rides nice on nasty Detroit roads with the MII frontend.

I'd love to, but probably not. That's a LONG haul for me... as I'm in central West Virginia. I'll be doing good to get to Carlisle, which is around a 7hr drive. I'd REALLY like to take the mustang to Carlisle, but it's a really long tow.... for my 4cyl Ranger. That, and its a tight time schedule. I -may- get to go along and spectate, but that Friday the 3rd is our last scheduled day of school for the year... and the only day of racing. We'll just have to see.

Isn't there a race in Maryland several of the bunch try and attend? That would probably be do-able.

Well, I got the "Special" ride where he went all out in all the gears at around 3-4ish in the morning Thur or Fri night after letting Doug use my tools since he was having clutch linkage problems so he gave me one hell of a ride when it was finally fixed. Totally deserted streets near Woodward and the hotel and a driver that is happy this his clutch works again o it can be cruised again on Woodward another day and there's the mix to scare the crap out of the passenger(me). I will not forget that ride for a long time. One thing that stuck in my mind is the fact that car actually hooked pretty good for only being BFG street radials (though fairly wide). I was impressed with the hook and he went though 4th gear several times. We even went on the highway That was a night I will not soon forget. Nothing to grab ahold of except a seat and door handle I'm getting an adrenaline rush just thinking about it again. With a good launch on slicks, a roll cage, and tuned it should run a low 10 or possibly a high 9 with a few little changes and bolt ons OR just turn the bottle on with slicks.

Mike, I would seriously consider figuring out a way to make it. I knew it was big all those years I heard about it from the other forum members that attended until I finally went last year and honestly might have been the best time of my life. Endless cool cars and friends I have known for years but never met in person and feeling totally at home. You must make it I am bringing my car this year so I can scare those who scared me last year (Doug, Bill, & Kevin) and some others too.

Thanks guys.You all have cars that are nicer,better,faster than mine,so it makes a guy feel good and gives testament to how great you guys are for not having a "holier than thou" attitude,when you say nice things about other peoples cars.
Rick,hopefully you will have one of your cars there this year and we can trade rides "off the beaten path"
Mike,I would like to get down to Kanahwa this year so maybe we can get together.How is the work on the engine coming along? I dont think a trip to Woodward would be any longer than to Carlisle from your place.
Kent,I am going to make it up there for at least a long weekend this summer.Should be LOTS of fun.I am going to hold you to giving me a white knuckle ride in your car also. I have not gotten a ride in the Battlestar yet either.From what I hear thats a get in,set down,shut up ride that you will never forget even if i does only last 10 seconds.
Johnny Ray.you need to stick around longer this year bud.
Gor for it 63Kcode,you only cringe till you get past the point of no return LOL.

You say you used Kooks headers... are they for a FOX body? Do FOX body headers work with the Mustang II front end kits?

It looks like a good way to transplant a 351W stroker into a mustang... and still have plenty of room to work.

I see you have a motor plate up front. Does your car also use a midplate in front of the tranny.... or is it just the motor plate and the trans cross member?

Thanks!

Hey Mike. Yes they are fox body headers. With my motor placement and raised port heads they were almost perfect.Not sure about any other application.
No it does not have a mid plate.Just the front plate,some custom(as in "homade")solid motor mounts and a custom tranny cross member that ties to the sub connectors. The tranny is on a rubber mount.

Fastymz.Thanks. I have yet to have proof of a ET. But I am having a ball with it anyway!

Are the headers FOR the 225 heads in a Fox body, or standard exhaust port height heads?

Hmm.. a motor plate AND motor mounts.

Again, awesome car!

Thanks!

They are for the AFR 205,225, Canfield, Avenger. Part #5031 I tried a set of Hooker #6116 for a 66-69 Fairlane/67-70 Mustang they fit the car very well but
1 5/8 were the largest primaries in that style. And a set of #6223 Supercomps which fit ok,but I didnt like the adapter plate and I am not possitive but I think 1 3/4 was the max on them. I know the set I had was 1 3/4 and they were gonna choke the ports off cause they had the close bolt pattern. I am sure you know how they are made and all about that adapter plate.

Yes Greg I am REALLY hoping to make Carlisle this year.

I have the annual match race set up with Travis/Green65Galaxie for Friday night, so I will have the 63 Galaxie for that.

I'm not sure if I'll take a car to the show on Friday. Gets to be a hassle trying to do the show AND the races....

Saturday, not sure, might take the Edsel for the show.....

I have just made plans to be there by Friday morning this time instead of Saturday like last year. I have to see you and Travis run the match race. I may also trailer something down there myself for the track. We'll see....AND Doug(highpockets) said he would be there last year but he never showed. He better make it this time or else....

I still say wow.

A mustang II front end and a mild tub job and 4-link (with a 351W stroker 4-speed) sure would be nice in the mustang....

Of course even a running engine seems to be too much to ask right now..

Hey guys how accesible are the mustang mark 2 front ends

cos i was a naughty boy on the weekend and had to spend some money buying back a 63 model that i owned years ago....

Has 15x15 on the rearwith a four link....but the front end has had a holden front end grafted on ,,much the same as yours highpockets...but its a fraction 2 wide...so it heas issues turning...and I am seriously thinking of doing the same conversion down here in Aust

Oh...told you that you got me all enthused...totally sandblsted and primed my engine bay of the other 63 i own over the weekend....came up beautifully...wont be long before i get the engine bay in paint
