Classic Ford Racing Performance: The New Trend


In the year 1964, the very first 427 Ford Falcon propelled Ford’s reputation in street and super stock racing. The early Ford Drag team in the mid 1960’s consisted of names like Phil Bonner, Al Joniec and Dick Brannan and paved the way for future Ford Performance connoisseurs. The Ford Mustang was single-handedly outselling the competition by mid 1965. The Cobra Jet V-8 was initially introduced in its Torino in the late 1960’s. The assembly lines in Detroit were rolled off by a few 428 powered Fairlane Cobras. Many of these vehicles have found their way back onto the street performance scene today, equipped with new high performance short block engines.

Custom Cooling Systems for New Crate Engines

New 302 or 351 base engines are now being installed in these classic car bodies and they equip it with precision crafted Ford racing parts for these street rods.

Here are a few ideas on how you can maximize your new short block engine’s potential:

  • A cooler engine can be achieved by addressing the cooler system with a remotely mounted electric water pump. It can also gain you space under the hood and adds horsepower.
  • AN block adopters which are specially designed ensures that you are using new O-rings of the right size for a tight seal and will also assist you in making that connection to your engine.
  • The connection to the radiator will be completed by proper adapter fittings and fresh radiator hoses. This will provide your cooling system with a clean nice finish when you present it at classic car restoration  shows.

The Purpose of Billet Aluminum

We now move on to dressing up your fuel system. In the muscle car performance parts world, Edelbrock and Holley are the chief brands and these precision crafted products are highly recommended by most enthusiasts. Fuel flow control is achieved through the use of a new fuel pressure regulator. Maximum tuning for steady fuel pressure between idle and full throttle is also provided by a new fuel pressure regulator. Stability is achieved through having the right brackets for your fuel regulator. Also, your new carburetor is made visible by carburetor return springs and the clean, well-groomed look of Billet aluminum holding your throttle cables. Show off while racing on the street by spraying some nitrous oxide at the right moment and leave your opponents behind. Be certain that your fuel solenoid to the engine block is securely mounted by the brackets for NOS. To make sure of tight fittings of parts, purchase Ford throttle cables, cable ends, and return brackets from the same vendor at the same time. To guarantee that you are building low pressure under the throttle plate, you can choose to add a billet shear plate and space plate.

See your new Ford performance engine’s true potential and get to the finish line first with these recommendations. With all its horse power, one thing that will prove to be a challenge is to keep this engine cool. For peak performance, fuel regulation and proper cooling must work hand in hand. Choosing just any other after market pressure regulator will not suffice. Ford racing parts for your street rod that are custom crafted are highly recommended. 6061-T6 billet aluminum is what the brackets for the fuel regulator should be machined from. Give the classic Ford performance cars like the early Fairlane Cobras and Mustangs the best for they deserve it.
