Are you going to put some meshies like they used to have on em or you gonna keep those cragars?
I would have to take out a loan... at 14mpg... gonna be a big loan
I'm not actually positive on any of the facts on the V8 Pangra I bought this year...son told me dad built it, dad passed a few years ago... they didn't buy it new but had it by the mid/early 70'sI know the DSO code for this one was Illinios as I recall, not a california Pinto. I have seen a few of the California Pangras in person and except the front seats it sure does look correct for a Huntington build but... when the family says it was built here and the DSO confirms it's not a California Pinto... what can I say unless someone comes forward, that worked at Huntington, to say they recall this car getting built for someone out East (Illinois or Minnesota) I gotta go with Built from a kit???
We did however have a midwest dealer that could get most all if not all parts to build a Pangra, i think he was in Chicago area.
I'll see if i can dig up the name somewhereThe ONLY way someone with a kit would get the emblems and dash would to be an "authorized Pangra builder/Dealer".
This car should also have the suspension kit with koni's and a front and rear sway bar, the recommended american slot 7" mags and recommended Conti radials.
some had Shelby center caps some had American center caps....
Supposedly my (Huntington Ford's ) Black Demo car was the only one with the smoked rear vented windows (pain in the butt and leaked) and "fuel altered type" wing on it....
Brian, Do the Mardi Auto Works report on the car.
I'm thinking aluminum slots
that sounds correct, some had Shelby center caps some had American center caps, we bought them from a local speed shop in Arcadia on Balwin Blvd.
I'm with you, I think your car is pretty rare and it would be cool to find original build details. I would LOVE to find my former "Gold Bee" Dealer race car. Good luck and if i hear/find anything else out about your car i'll sure let you know, like wise if you do, please let me know!!
If I remember correctly; the tires / wheels were sourced from Performance Specialties. Brian, can you get a 'good' shot of the tread on those Continentals?
