I have searched all over the Internet but cannot seem to find the Drag Coefficient of an SC, does anyone know what it is?



BTW

~I dont have an SC yet, but have wanted one for years and now that the head gasket has blown in my 85 Cougar(3.8) I am going to buy one in a few months.:cool:

aerodynamics wise, the SuperCoupe was the Lowest wind resistant drag coefficient of any car manufactured by Ford up to that date(1989).

basically these cars really slice through the air , better than most out there in fact.

sorry i dont have more concrete numbers.

Road and track tested the T-bird SC at Cd=0.32?

I know that a Ferrari Modena has a Cd=0.33.

Robert Keck now living in Waco, TX who owns 2 SCs did a wind tunnel test on a SC for a project in college. I have a copy somewhere. Forget what name he goes by but seldom posts. He has a 4.2 stroker and may use that name or similar. I will have to find my copy and post or will ask him if OK to do so. It is sorta big and I may need to send to scguys to post it somehow.
