The body is straight and without rust . Unibody is solid throughout. I painted the car just before storing it. Ivy Green, its original color, in laqer. I put 4 coats of color on the parts before re-assembling it. The only body modification is to the hood. I installed a scoop form a 69 Mustang and locking hood pins.
The car was a plain jane coupe from Dearborn. originally a 289-2bbl with AT. Only other option was AC.
Now she has a 289-4v with a 4-speed top-loader manual Transmission and a 1967 -
9" rearend. Traded the AC for the Top-loader.
Currently the engine is bored .030, Mains & Rods .010/.010. It has a Ford 4v cast Iron Intake with a Holly 4150 double-pumper for carburation. Hooker Headers with dual exhuast. The heads are 1968 casting from a 351 windsor with the rail type rocker arms. I've done a few of these for friends. It's as close to the 289 HiPo heads you can get without spending big bucks. Roller timing gears & chain. Crane Cam & Lifters for a 351 Windsor (305 duration, .410 lift). Pistons are flat-topped forged aluminium from TRW with eyebrow reliefs for the valves. The distributor is a Ford dual-point.
As you can guess from the detailed description, I'm emotionally attached to the car. I would like some opinions about wether I should sell or keep the car.
