Great job!

Got any "upgrades" into the motor? A real 5-liter stick car will always be desirable. You are miles ahead of the guys that picked up clean 4-cylinder cars and converted them to V8.
I know right? That thing was a mess. I have no idea how many miles are on it actually..the speedometer wasn't working when I got it. I'd guess it's close to 200k, but I don't know that for sure. Same problem with my GT, speedo was broken on that car too when I got it, so it's probably over 200k as well, though the only thing original on that car anymore is the chassis.

Anyway, no upgrades. It's completely stock minus the rusted CAI and some headers that I had laying around from after I converted the GT to long tubes. It could use a few more oats though, so I'm considering hunting down a set of GT40 iron heads and a explorer intake to help liven it up just a little. I've also got a set of stud mount 1.7's laying around that I'd like to trade for pedestal mounts so I can throw some on the convertible.

The remarkable thing about this car is, despite being so badly neglected, it's completely straight and rust free. I've yet to find any real rust anywhere..just the typical really minor stuff on the steel bumpers, and that's about it, nothing I can find anywhere on the body (well, if we ignore the surface rust on the floor from the leaking window that I sanded off and painted).

My only mod plans for this car are pretty simple. Full Length SFC's, strut tower brace, springs, shocks, and maybe that GT40 swap. The SFC's and strut tower brace I'll need to buy, but the springs/shocks I'm going to swipe from the GT when I upgrade it to MM's coil over setup.

Very nice job on an extensive rebuild!!! So many people may have just thrown in the towel or called the Garage Squad!!!
