What could possibly go wrong?

One on right needs some overload springs.

More pics (including the front, unfortunately)

1970 Ford Torino King Cobra prototype, btw...

Pic #2 looks like a Datsun 240Z.

Gravdigr 06-18-2015 04:47 PM

I thought the same thing. A 240Z on steroids.

You might find a used one in NC.

ps, where do the eyelids disappear to?

Gravdigr 06-19-2015 02:12 PM

If you refer to the Torino, I think the headlight covers come off, as opposed to retracting/disappearing. By hand, I assume.

xoxoxoBruce 06-19-2015 04:12 PM

Agreed, there's no sign of anywhere for those covers to go. As a matter of fact there's no obvious attachment points, I wonder how they were held on?

Magic, apparently.

Magic or magnet. But these were supposed to stay on at 200+ mph so probably a little duct tape too.

I just realized the link to the used cars I posted, is the same dealer that has this Ford on ebay. :smack:
