When one is 76 inches tall, fitting into a car only 40 inches high was never going to be easy. However, with some trimming here and there and locating it 75 mm further forward and a fraction more to the left than it was designed to be, the pedal box is trial fitted. The good news is that my legs end up at a comfortable angle. Now we just have to figure out how to route the speedo cable, hand-brake cable, and the plumbing for clutch and brake hoses in a cavity that is half the size it originally was...
Neither is mine...which is one of the reasons I asked!
Just today I handed my local optical shop the prescription my eye doc wrote yesterday. 'Might have the new glasses by next Monday. The Thanksgiving holiday prevents getting 'em any sooner.
It's partly camera angle (I'm tall), but you might be asking the wrong question Larry. Perhaps it should be "Has there been some modification done to the slope of the car in the picture you posted?" It looks to me like a Superformance, which may differ from the original MKII rear. Here (below mine) is a pic of the original XGT-2, albeit from a much lower angle. The slope looks reasonably close mine (in my opinion). I know that my rear clip was cast from a mould that was used to make original MKII clips back in the day.
This photo confirms there's a definite diff between SPFs rear deck 'slope' and yours. No question. (Run a horizontal line along the BOTTOM of the passenger window AFT to the rear deck spoiler. The base of the spoiler is clearly BELOW that line on yours...and ABOVE that line on the SPF.)
SUPPOSEDLY the SPF is an exact copy of one original MK II or another...as is yours evidently if your info is correct. YOURS 'flows better' visually 'far as I'm concerned...at least in the photo above anyway.
I have to wonder, though, if someone wanted to run dual 4s or an 8 stack setup on a 427 F.E. in a MK II, would there be enough vertical clearance for either induction setup at the rear of the engine (because of the steeper angle of the rear window) if that car employed your style rear deck???
