Hot Rod did an article on the Georgia Shaker 428 Mustang of Platt and Payne


Here's some of the things they did to make it a winning drag racer:
 • Every other impeller blade was removed from the water pump and a larger pulley installed.
 • A larger pulley was also installed on the alternator.
 • The right rear spring hanger was made longer than the left.
 • Each leaf spring was tied every 4 inches ahead of the rear axle.
 • The car’s right side wheelbase was made 1 1/2 inches longer than the left side to enhance deep staging.
