Classic Car Pictures...
Here ya go Spotts, its close to being done.
Ill give some "data" on whats powering the bird, later...
Yeah I have the matching wheels I haven't ordered new tires yet, gimme slack lol...
Ok have have a second before I leave..
I pulled the 400 Pontiac as it lost oil pressure this summer. Turned out its ok, oil pump went bad. Anyways...
I had a 460 ( Yeah, FORD)... That a few buddies and I build about 15 years ago, for a mud truck I use to run. (Yes I was a redneck) Oops still am after this project lol
This was a very well built 460. The heads are from a 429 Cobra Jet, and very well ported, shaved... My buddy worked at a machine shop when I was in the Air Force in Mountain Home Id...He put 100 hours into the port work on these heads. VERY nice flow... All roller 460, a NICE Lunati cam. Compression is about 11:1 so it does run on pump fuel. Crank was polished, the engine was balanced and blueprinted. Manifold ported to match the heads. Just, plain, meaty.
So, after I stopped mudding, it sat. Well After buying a mig welder and having a few too many Crown Royals, I decided hell Ill put it in the bird..
It fit pretty well, of course it needed motor mounts and a new tranny cross member. Plus the hood wouldn't shut so I topped it off with an intake that I think looks pretty damn cool...
I LOVE it when the Pontiac guys give me a weird look when they see a FORD under the hood. I could really not care less what "Brand" of metal slapped together pushes the tires down the road personally. This is what I had, and this is what I dropped in.
Ok I gotta roll, and I'm taking the bird

Nice cars. I have always enjoyed the older cars and trucks.
My youngest boy enjoys them also. This is his biggest project (he has several other smaller projects). It is a long term project, but it is what he wanted to do for his first car. He is 15 yrs old, he has done a lot of the work himself (with some help/guidance from me), and he has paid for most of the car and parts...
It started out looking like this
But like I said he has been working on it
We have this side pretty much done, other 1/4 panel has been removed as has the wheel well.
Maybe some day it will turn heads like your cars........I never let schooling interfere with my education... Mark Twain

Nice early iron, guys...still trying to find a pic of my '68 Mustang I owned at one time...sigh...'twas a fine ride.But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.---Psalm 50:16-17
