I've owned her six months...this is my progress in the engine bay. I know the export brace and MC bar are not original and that I need to seal up the fire wall. The button on the right shock tower is a family thing. Otherwise, thoughts? Criticisms? Recommendations?

It's absolutely GoRgEoUs and is an inspiration to others that want to detail their cars so well!

Nice job! Did it originally come with the disc brakes?

All GTs came with front disc brakes.
That makes sense since the GT didn’t come out until after jan 65 and it was part of the GT package. Duh. Either way from wgat I can see if it, still a great job.

one more question. I think I see two wires from the distributor. Do you have the pertronix internal? Or am I mistaken? I’m asking for a reason. I just got out my original distributor. Currently running a pertronix distributor (had to canex the coil, way too ugly), and thinking of ways to hide the second wire with the original distributor. I don’t know if you know this, but that vacume advance unit, we both have, is damn near impossible to get.
