Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
Mine was very much like that, but blue.
What a beast. What a babe magnet.
The 390 engine made itself known. It was a good car for a young man trying to make his mark on the world. Of course, I bought the car used. And because I drove with my foot in the carburetors, it burned a lot of gas.
Best looking of the early Mustangs. Want.(And I'm hardcore Chevyman.)
I only built Chevy's too, but really liked this body style - esp. Boss 302 and Boss 429. IIRC, to change at least one if not two of the spark plugs on the 429, you had to jack the engine up off the mounts to gain access to the plug.Good times!
Nah,just drill a few holes in the inner fender and put rubber plugs in them. You can get to the spark plugs with an extension or two. I put a 429 in a 66 Fairlane many years ago.Basically the same unibody.
I used to have a collection of modified tools for various old car tasks. A box-end wrench with half the end ground off, the only way to get that #2 cylinder exhaust manifold bolt on a 440 mag. Another wrench that i heated to cherry red and bent a couple of extra 90's in order to reach the back intake manifold bolt. No more old cars, but I still run into some of those scrap pieces in my garage.
Better yet, Panasports......
