1967 Shelby Arning upper control arm drop deduction?
« on: February 28, 2016, 12:56:45 AM »
My '67 GT500 has the Arning drop. I don't know who it was done by, but my vehicle was a one owner vehicle and has been off the road since 1977. The previous owner has since passed , so I can't ask.

The question at hand is would this one be penalized point wise for this modification?

Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.

Every boy looks skyward with longing dreams of flight. Finding shapes in scattered clouds, wishing on falling stars ideas are born.

+1 . Are you planning on concours competition or popular vote? If for concours(Mustang and Shelby venues) it is expected to be all Factory stock.

Thanks again. I had a feeling that would be the case.

You should fix that, it isn't that hard to do.
I don't always downshift, but when I do it is near a Prius so they can hear me hurting the environment.

I could, but I'm not going to. It's not a trailer queen. I will be driving it. So It will stay. I despise the rear low rider rake too, so the vehicle sits balanced and level. I am doing most of the vehicle to look completely correct, but I made a few changes to the engine that can be reversed relatively easy if the need arises.  8)
