It appears that the rear quarter panels and the floor was replaced before I purchased the vehicle.

E-mail me with any questions, Please check the You Tube link below showing the fresh engine running.
Here is some more information on the engine. 1967 428 CJ block (possibly from a Shelby Mustang) that was freshly bored .20 over, oil gallerys modified & the block was deburred. Probe forged flat top pistons 10 to 1 compression, total seal rings, factory CJ rods were magnafluxe, resized and ARP bolts. The stock crank has been machined & the entire rotating assembly was professionally balanced from the harmonic balancer to the flywheel. The heads are 1969 CJ heads that have had the normal rebuild including valves, seats, guides and surfacing. The engine retains the stock valve train with the addition of Isky double coil valve springs to accommodate the Erson hydraulic flat tappet camshaft (296 duration / 551 lift -3000 to 6000 rpm). The engine was professional assembled by Mark DeGroff's machine shop. The factory intake manifold has been matched to the head ports (FE intake manifolds and heads must meet correctly for the valve covers to line up). I have personally build several Ford Engines but I decided to have Mark do this one for me since he performed all the Machine work and is very experienced with Fords and there idiosyncrasies.

I am going to include the Ford 4 SPD Top Loader transmission that came with the car ( its highly race modified) it does have the correct case but the tail section is longer then the Mustang application & is not particularly clean. I decided to just keep it and have another one custom built for the car. Another center counsel ( needs to be restored) and of course the instrument cluster with the factory Tachometer and clock are included.The Steering wheel included is a 1970 Rim Blow that needs to be restored.The body rocker molding is included as well. I also am going to include a custom radiator over flow tank & vacuum canister to assist Power Brakes to deal with the performance Cam Shaft.
