    What would be the best build for a 66 289. I got my hands on a 289 and want to see what can I do with it and add to it. It has already been rebuilt, but lacks parts such as an intake manifold, carb, etc. I want to be able to use the most I can from what the rebuilt block came with, but I am not...

    I have a 1967 convertible with (as far as I can tell) the original 289/C4 combo. The paint is not correct to the vin and I have already upgraded to a 4bbl intake/carb, front coilovers and wilwood disc brakes. I am tossing around the Idea of a 351W/T5 swap. At this point, does it matter that I am...

    I have been taking time off to try different combinations of what can be done with my car and I have been thinking of using a v8 289 I already got. Or thinking of switching to a 250 I can look for. Or use the most extreme option of using a Barra 6. I asked before for some build ideas, but with a...

    I have been relying on online searches and my mechanic grandfather's expertise to work on my restomod '69 Grande. However, I am no longer living super close to my grandpa and I am sick of searching the internet for hours and not even finding the right information. It is long past the time I...

    Hey all, I'm Logan Kitchen, but my friends call me "Kitch". I'm a software developer living in Utah. I have a beat up '69 Grande that my Grandpa and I fixed up while I was in high school. I mostly just did what I could to keep it running and looking alright, but slowly it just wore out. It...

    Hello all. Iā€™m sure by the title you all know that I have a ā€˜66 fastback. I am doing a restomod and want a new engine in it (it had no engine when I bought it) and really want to put a 427 stroker in it. This is not a question of should I do it (I know the answer is probably no) but more a...

    Looking for a solid '65-'67 Coupe of Fastback Roller. Does not need engine or anything, I just need a solid, original body with no rust. If you have a body with engine, etc. thats fine. I'm looking for this to be a restomod project. I know the price differences between the coupe or fastback, so...

    If I set a budget of about 20 to 30 thousand, instead of buying a newer mustang, what can I do to my Mustang? Can I restomod it to make it a daily driver? Can I change my i6 to a 302? My goal is to have a daily driver that is reliable and fun. I would have this budget include labor as I don't...
