Dodge Dart Sport Hang Ten, This was about the dumbest concept. Anemic engine and all. If the guy would have gotten real right on the price, I was gonna jerk the POS engine and transplant a 440. It didn't happen. Oh, and I realized that it actually released as a '75 year model. Nolan

I believe the 60's Stangs had the left front leg back. This one has the left front leg forward. I am going to say 1974. MII.

Correct. The "trotting" Mustang. Mane, neck and legs in different slower pose, more sedate. Apt, all things considered, IMO.


1974 Mustang II Emblem


1964 Mustang Emblem

Floor to you, redsdad.

This should be easy.

Jack Roush campaigned a unique car with Wayne Gapp in 1975. What make, model, and body style was it; What was the car's nickname; Why did they choose that particular car?

Have to answer all three parts to get it!

Tijuana Taxi

Ford Maverick four door sedan, The "Tijuana Taxi", Wayne explained there was a loophole in the NHRA Pro Stock rule books allowing true wedge and inline valve-engine cars (like the Fords) to run at 6.45 pounds per cubic inch (lighter than comparable big-block Chevy or Hemi-powered cars) with a maximum allowable wheelbase of 110 inches (longer than the typical 100-inch car of the time). On paper, this should be an excellent car. The rules also stated that "1969 or later factory-produced coupes, sedans, or station wagons" were legal, which pretty much left the gate open to experimentation.

For the 1975 season, Wayne Gapp and Jack Roush raced a four door Pro Stock Maverick. Due to the huge success that Gapp & Roush, Glidden, Dyno Don and others were having with the Pinto, NHRA continued to put weight handicaps on the little Ford. So Gapp & Roush looked for a longer wheel based Ford that would not get weight handicapped. The only light Ford that was long enough to avoid the weight handicap was a four door Maverick.

More Acronyms

Thanks Dad, Ok, another easy one to keep it moving.

This automaker used an acronym to describe its parts in the U.S.
Same automaker used other acronyms to describe its parts outside the U.S.
Who is the automaker, and what are the different acronyms used?

Chrysler products used Mopar in the US, used Chryco and Autopar in at least some non US locations.

Yep

You got it Jet, the other names were used in Canada until phased out, to all become MOPAR. Your turn.

What was the quick way to tell a true pre 49 AD truck from a 49 or later
when street rod events restricted entry to pre 49? This should be a gift to Martin SR.!

Gas tank is under the bed on the 48 and earlier, friction shocks instead of tubular, the inside door windlace is held in by a metal trim screwed over it where the later ones have a rubber wind lace that slips over a piece of trim welded to the cab. The rear cab mounts changed from a biscuit type to a shackle type. There are a bunch of others that occurred right about then like the side cowl vent went away and vent wings and swing door handles. But those are kinda sticky as to exactly when, seems like they used up doors they had later on using an "adapter" striker that allowed them to put a swing handle door on a pushbutton door cab (the back of the door jamb where the striker bolts is different).

Did I get it?
