What mods do you have?

I have Luminics 6000k bulbs in my low beams, Silver Star's in my fogs, Silver Star in my front turn signals, window vent visors, K&N replacment air filter, 22% tint, and blue reverse bulbs. Getting some clear corners by next Wed. Saving for chrome sport tubes, exhaust system, supercharger, Ground Force lowering kit, and 20" chrome rims.

Wheels and tires. That's more than plenty since Ford built 'em right back in the day (unless you count my fancy primer-gray paint scheme ).

Well, I've got a 460 bored .30 over, Crane 260-H cam, cloyes pre-71 timing chain, Edelbrock 750 carb on an Edelbrock intake. New re-curved distributor and dual 2 1/2" exhaust with X pipe with no cats. All smog equipment is long gone and she purrs like a thirsty kitten. Check out the gallery.

Other than that, no mods but I'm getting a 4" lift in a year or so after Debbie and I pay for our wedding.

Rebuilt 1968 460 recently placed into my 74 F250 4x4. Replaced the stock Carb and Manifold with Eldelbrock Performer dual plane Mani and a 750 cfm carb. Next will be to replace the stock points dizzy with electronic ignition. Not sure which to choose on that yet. Any ideas?
New HD clutch and flywheel from L&L, Hooker Headers, Hooker 460 engine adapt motor mounts. Right now running 33" wheels/tires, but with all this torque I'm prolly gonna go to some 35's. Still quite a bit of rubber left right now so it may be a while for the tires. (especially at todays gas prices!)
The 05 Super Duty is bone stock... Some day I'll open up the exhaust on that one.

oldfordsnstone, you need to look at a Mallory Unilite distributor. I got one for my 72 Ventura II and I've never regretted it. I got mine with mechanical advance because I want to run a bigger cam, (read less vacuum), and since I have drum brakes, no problem, but they have a vacuum advance model too. The timing is right on the money and it NEVER, NEVER moves at all, it's rock steady. I got it at Summit Racing when I lived in Sparks and in 4 years, I've never had to mess with it.

I would highly recommend a power filter with that distributor. It plugs in-line with the rest of the wiring and it just keeps the L.E.D. unit inside the distributor from scrambling if you get a power spike, and it's only $15.

The best part is, Mallory is based in Carson City out by the airport, so customer service is right at your back door. My JEG's catalog has a dizzy for $225.99.
