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?

+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)
