    Nice workmanship so far but are you ready for some questions and critiquing?

    Never mind, build for fun. I'll avoid the tips and critique. You can learn as you go.


    (For those following this thread and being confused, I had offered a list of suggestions in this post but deleted them because it was a bit much and was probably interpreted as insulting.

    Many of you know that I often offer advice based on my experience with drag cars. Sometimes it's appreciated, sometimes it's not.}

    Shove it!

    Very fine Ford, but then most all of them are. Nice detail work also.  Is this a kit or did you do some kit-bashing and clean fabrication?

    Yes this is from the bob glidden pro stock,things i made or added were the fuel pump,oil tank,front and rear coil over shocks plus other mods.

    Yes, the AMT instructions related to the exhaust are pretty ambiguous. Stock class NHRA rules in ‘66 required the stock exhaust and muffler(s) to be intact and any performance headers were allowable but they needed to be routed thru the stock exhaust. Open bypasses were allowable so as long as the stock exhaust pipes are connected to the headers up near the engine, it should be legal. In hindsight, I probably should have connected the dual stock exhausts to each header near the header outlets (“the open bypass”), much like the Moebius ‘65 Plymouth SS and A/FX kits.

    Bill Jenkins was notoriously secretive about his race cars, I was never able to locate a reference photo of the underside of this car so who knows what the headers and exhaust system actually looked like.

    Good work buddy!
