Midget with 302

Hey,
Thanks for all of your replies. The reason I wanted to go with a "Mustang II" style front end is because of the self contained nature of the set up and because of parts availability. I've seen other Midget projects with a 302 and understand that I will probably have to cut out the transmission tunnel and fabricate another one. I know the motor will fit without lengthening the chassis. Its the brakes, coil springs and shocks that concern me, the stock set up is just not up to the task. For the rear I had planned on going with a 9 inch Ford with a 4 link set up. My plan is for this car to look absolutely stock on the outside except for the roll bar. Oh, and it WILL sound scarey!

Mike
