  • Shaker scoop

    serch.it?q=Shaker-scoop

    A Boss 302 engine with the optional factory shaker scoop.A shaker scoop (sometimes called a shaker hood scoop or a shaker hood) is an automobile term for an air intake for combustion air that is mounted directly on top of the engine's air cleaner and protrudes through a hole in the hood. Since it is fastened directly to the engine, it moves with the engine's movement and vibration on its mountings, thus the 'shaker' name. Some official Chrysler literature referred to this popular hood style as the "Incredible Quivering Exposed Cold Air Grabber". This lengthy title has since been shortened by enthusiasts and collectors to the less tongue-twisting "shaker hood". Like all such scoops, its purpose is to increase performance at high speed by a 'ram air' effect, delivering high pressure air to the engine. However, engines draw air in hundreds of cubic feet per minute so scoops are not practical to raise intake pressures significantly. Other benefits of a shaker hood include elevation to prevent water from being drawn on flooded terrain, a cooler source of air, and a more direct path to the engine's throttle plate. Such scoops were fitted to a variety of cars, including: 1969 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet 1969/1970 Boss 302 Mustang 1970 Plymouth Barracuda Dodge Challenger Ford Torino Pontiac GTO Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Pontiac Can Am Grand Am Ford Falcon XY GT Phase III 2004 Ford Mustang Mach 1

  • Ford Mustang variants

    Ford and several third party companies offered many modified versions of the highly popular Mustang in order to cater to specific portions of the marketplace outside of the mainstream. High-performance enthusiasts seek more powerful, sharper handling, sports cars, while collectors and purists seek limited production and alternate or nostalgic styling, such as is commonly found on many commemorative editions. Still, others were made purely for experimental concepts such as the McLaren M81 (turbo) and SVO, which later influenced production model design. Most variants include both performance upgrades, and unique cosmetic treatments that are typically minimal to maintain the familiar appearance of a stock Mustang. Although most of these Mustang variants were aimed at enthusiasts, an exception was the Special Service Package (or SSP), which was designed specifically for law enforcement.

    1968 California Special GT/CS - Front View In mid-February 1968, the California Ford Dealers (Ford Dealer Advertising Fund) began to market a factory-built, limited-edition Mustang, called the GT/CS, or "California Special". The hope was for a targeted production run of 5,000; however, only 4118 were made, including 251 units that were remarketed in Denver, Colorado, as "High Country Special '68". Production ran for only 5.5 months from mid-February 1968 to early August 1968. Today, classic car collectors consider these cars to be very desirable.
