    I was looking around the other day for what the quarter mile times were for classic mustangs, completely stock. Of course I found the times for the Mach 1's, and the Boss 302/429s, but no plain old coupes! Does anybody remember what the classic mustangs ran with a factory set up on the coupes?

    i would have to look it up to be sure, but as i recall the early c code and a code cars ran in the high 16s to mid 17s in the 1/4 mile, depending on what options the car had.
