The competition dash is more than just for looks, in the standard layout, the steering wheel will partially block your view of the tach or speedo depending on which you put over there.Really like the competition dash look! I would second the Russ Thompson turn signal and power steering as a toss up for me.
Rick,I have made many changes to the car as I built it, not too much after. I believe that I'd have to say my best "change" was cruise control, that takes a lot of worry out of highway cruising, I also like my home made 5-link rear suspension. Full length deep well foot boxes on both sides come in a close second (or third if the case is such).
408 kit instead of a stock rebuild, not really that much more money. Kept the same smallish carb so it's quite tame. Second would be rod end RCAs and QA1's greatly improved the ride on a 3-link (Mark sells a package). Scott
Bob,I made a lot of mods over the years. One of the best was a roll control. I used it all the time. Made it real easy to get started on a hill. Living in the mountains, that's kinda important. And it was fun for big smoky burn outs, too.
Another good one was replacing the front lower control arm bushings with rod ends. It did not increase harshness, noise, or vibration like I thought it would. But it allowed the suspension to work as planned, instead of transferring wheel movement to the rest of the chassis. A noticeably smoother ride with rod ends.
No, I actually cut off the bushings, and welded in rod ends. A slightly different way to get the same results. If that spherical bearing kit had been available, I would done that.Bob,
Do you mean the spherical bearing inserts (or something similar)
