Canton Front Sump Oil Pans Are Here!

DVS Restorations now carries the Canton front sump oil pan for 4.6 modular motors.  The pan is fully baffled and comes with a provision for a dipstick tube.  Mounted here on an 03 Cobra motor, the pan clears the stock windage tray.

    The good people at Canton Racing have once again brought us another one of their forward thinking products, and we are proud to make it available to you.  Canton's new front sump oil pan is just the ticket for most conversions that will retain the original rear steer suspension.  The Canton engine swap pan is a fully fabricated steel T-sump track proven design that includes 5 trap doors, bolt in slosh baffle, provision for a temperature sensor, magnetic drain plug and a provision for a dipstick tube.  Canton is also offering pickup tubes for both 2V and 4V applications. 

The Canton pan comes with a bolt in baffles and 5 trap doors                                                                                           The pan comes with available 2V and 4V front sump pickup tubes


Note: To use the Canton front sump pan in a typical 67-70 Mustang Application,  you will need to cut the shock towers of your car back to fit the late model motor.  See how to do this here:

It's been a busy year!



    The Mustang in Black project made the cover of both the February 06 issue of Mustang Monthly and the March 06 issue of Mustang and Fords magazinesWe'd like to thank both Don Farr and Mark Houlahan of Primedia for their unbelievable coverage in the magazines. 

    We also had the tremendous opportunity to display the car at the 2005 SEMA show.  We were invited to display the vehicle in the ARMO (Automotive Restoration Market Organization) booth, which was an honor.  We were afraid that some people wouldn't "get" the MIB car, being a show of way over the top vehicles.  But we were very pleased with the response we got out west!


Dennis Gage from the TV show My Classic Car  is an ARMO board member and stopped by to check out MIB with DVS' Craig Pattee and George Hall !


So What's Next??
