The tires are the same, except the rears are wider
The old rims didn't come on a Cougar, those are '69 Mustang Rims IIRC. The rims on the Cougar now are '67 Cougar ONLY rims. Dad found a Company that remakes them and had them made. He had to get new rims anyway, to fit the Disc brake that are now at all four corners.
The cat also now has a chin spoiler:
Dad is also working one rebuilding the hideaway lights/grille assembly. Been having problems with them working. In the long term.
And I just got off the phone with my dad a minute or so ago, it looks like She'* gonna be 302 Powered within two weeks!
Remanufactured 302 Longblock, hasn't been fired up since it was rebuilt. Thats a $1300 motor, dad practically stole it at 1k less
He sent in the 289 heads to be ported and polished, and since they are the same as the 302 heads those will go on the 302. He already sold the heads that came with the 302. And the 289 will be going to the same guy.
