The Mustang Project 85' GT

This is my latest and graetest Mustang, LOL.
85' GT 351w 5spd yada yada
Put in a new Summit Radiator today and did some detailing.
This radiator has been sitting in my dinning room since Oct.
When I took kit out of the box it was quite impressive.
All aluminum construction, nice weld and thicker than the
Ford Motorsport that was in my last car.
Before




The old POS

The Install





Hope it works as good as it looks. Not sure about not having a shroud,
if it turns out to be an issue I'll run over to the pull a part and get a
set of Contour or Mystique fans, they fit perfect and work awesome.

I let it idle for quite awhile and it seemd to run a bit cooler. Need a real temp gauge.

Tommorow I am relocating the fuel pump and tightening up some exhaust
leaks.
