Just picked up the reins of a project my old man started in the mid ninties. Want to fit a front clip to make it more drivable and wonderer what people prefer.

Mustang 2, Fat Man, Heidt, GM etc

My preference has always been GM as its a GM product. It defenitely wont be a Jaguar clip.

Also looking for recommendations of some one to fit it as it's beyond my capabilities and facilities.

Thanks

Andy.

why not jag out of interest?
I like to keep an American vehicle, American and i think the track is too narrow with the Jag clip on the second series 55 onwards trucks.IMO

Andy....Do you know Tony Roots? He's clipped a number of Chevy trucks using GM parts. Can give you his details if you need them and he's local.

Do not go Mustang 11 as a guy I know did and the turning circle became a problem. A 2nd gen Camaro or Firebird subframe/clip is what you need,it will give you good disc brakes and power steering. The important thing is to get someone who really knows what they are doing on the cutting/welding....

Have a chat to Paul at Burnham Autos , he's done loads of clip swaps over the years , his quality is bang on and his prices are honest too .

He'll probably try to talk you into using Jag though , the width is easy enough to adjust and the quality of ride and steering is superb , he's used them for years . That said he's got a good stock-pile of yank stuff if you really must . To be honest though lots of people use Jag for one reason , its the best .
