About “babe”

2001 zinc yellow cobra mustang.I belong to the HPmustangs, Yellow mustang registry, BadMustangClub, liStangs and cobra svt club. I'm at Ford nationals at Carlisle every year, Mustang week in Myrtle beach SC, Autofest at Lowes motor speedway in Charlotte NC, and alot of other shows durning the season. I do points series at RacewayPark, Englishtown NJ.

About “1969 Torino”

You just don't see a lot of formal roof Torino's any more. Especially in the rare "Indian Fire Red" color. I have owned this car for many years. I purchased out in Cleveland Ohio when I was out their working and saw it in the local paper. One look and I said it was going home with me. Cash advance at the local bank and away I went. One Stop to have new tires and fresh oil installed and drove it home to Minneapolis. I even slept in it on the way. The only problem I encountered was the water pump bearing failed on the way - managed to limp it all the way though.

It has been to the Car Craft Nationals in Minneapolis a couple times and a few other local shows.

It has very low miles and is totally solid.

These photos show it with original paint.

I had it repainted a couple years ago and of course we did it in the original color. It needed to be painted due to the factory paint finally wearing through from so much repeated waxing and polishing. Hated to do it, but it had to be done.

I am still putting it together!! Can't rush perfection!!

The car is a blast to drive.

Mods for “1969 Torino”

Totally stock except I have removed the original wheels and hub caps and installed 14x7 magnum 500's

Early in it's life the first owner pulled the front bench seat and installed a set of original matching bucket seats.

Only 46,000 miles so far.

There are plans for different Heads, Cam, Intake and Carb.

I picked up a "N" case posi from a 390 Torino GT.

All suspension and brakes are also being gone through to bring the car back to it's glory days once again!

Car has been repainted the original color due to the factory paint finally wearing through from so much repeated waxing and polishing. Hated to do it, but it had to be done.

Had the Bumpers rechromed - They were very nice, but not perfect. Now they are blinding!!

Lastly, interior will be freshened up and the shifter moved to the floor and a manaul steering column installed so the Bucket seats look more like they belong in the car!
