Re: 66 428 S-55 For Sale

Those are cool cars... I hope it gets saved, but it might be a real steal for a non CJ 428. If you want to see what a difference a cam, intake, better heads, and better exhaust manifolds can make, just drive a CJ back to back with the regular 428.

Re: Wrecks to Riches Cougar by Barry's Speed Shop

I guess the answer is ... It depends. It was built as a race car. Race cars are not about cosmetic detail as much as really good functional detail. Functionally it was pretty good. The paint was much better than you would expect from a race car. It has a head liner. The dash is functional, but in my...

Global West coil overs up front and some serious brakes.. http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h280/xr7g428/122910192.jpg The rear suspension used lowering blocks. I was surprised to see this, but I guess it got the job done. Nice brakes! http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h280/xr7g428/122910187.jpg

Wrecks to Riches Cougar by Barry's Speed Shop

I had the opportunity to go take a look at this car for a fellow Cougar enthusiast. The car was being auctioned on eBay and it deserved a closer look. The current owner is in failing health, and his family is working on helping him sell off much of his automobile related possessions. They are intere...
