installing the floor shifter, getting the car buttoned up. complete assembly took 1 week

vinyl roof being removed. next replaced panel behind passenger door. car has 1 carb, but not for long

the car is now painted. painted it the garage. won't do that again lol. whole garage is white but the floor is now sealed.

car now has dual carbs. i am experimenting with different colors. car now in primer at least it all one color.

New front seats and covers.

The scoop is painted white and 1/8th pin stripes add.

Just another view.

The hood is now painted.I just have to paint the grills black and attach them to the hood.

Got these seats from a 2003 Ford escape.

Whooo hoooo 460 in a Fox body. A real "hero" car that's for sure and great use of a now rare and mostly unloved body style. Have you run it at the track yet? Should run a blistering 11something.

Great job, ought to pass anything on the road except a gas station!!!

yes it does pass everything but the gas station. gas in canada here right now is 1.40 per liter premium, nearly 7.00 per gallon
