    .bmp  1987.bmp (Size: 285.52 KB / Downloads: 1)I have owned my 73 Fastback since '87. It was my first car and started as a 2 barrel Cleveland with an open rear and vinyl top. I changed it to black, lost the vinyl top, added a ram air style hood and rear spoiler. When the bottom end went out I built another Cleveland, approx 11.1 4 barrel motor, c6 and 4.10 gears with 31 spline axels. I sold that motor to a buddy 10 years ago and started to strip her to bare metal and repair rusted parts. When my wife had our first kid the car got put on the back burner. I have slowly started to get things moving again and have a 460 short block complete and waiting on funds for the heads. PST front suspension and sway bars front and rear. Need to finish up the bodywork and hope to in paint it by spring

          WELCOME aboard, Dave!

          I am particularly interested in your choice for motivation in your Mustang. What block do you have: D0VE, D1 or D9? Have you decided which heads you intend to use?

          I look forward to interacting with you on the forums.

          Again, Welcome!!

              The block was out of a 73 Lincoln which if I remember is a D1VE block. the motor had 40,000 miles and sat after a broken distributor. The crank didnt even need to be turned. Bored .30 over and added forged h-beam rods and forged pistons. I am planning on using the Edelbrock Performer RPM heads and will be about 10.5 to 1. I would have gone with cobra jet style heads but headers would be really expensive and I think I can get good power from my choice and overbuilt the bottom end so I can spray it if I want do any drag racing

                    I believe you have made some GREAT decisions relative to the motor. It certainly sounds as if you have put some real effort in your decisions.

                    I am a STRONG believer in putting the BBF motors in the '71 - '73 Mustangs as the engine bays are "right" for the swap and based on what was done with the '71 429SCJ, we know it will DEFINITELY work. For "swappers", Ford has already "plowed the field" so it is just a matter of following the template.

                    Again, I look forward with interacting with you "on your journey."

                      So I'm guessing your running a 460. It seemed like the right thing to do. Ford built this body style with plans for big block power. Too bad their plans were cut short but we can always take over where they left off!

                      What have you done with yours? I had considered going with a stroker crank but since my stock one was in such good shape I opted for the scat rods that are used with their stroker so i have that option later without having to repurchase rods. I am expecting about 550hp on pump gas and mild converter so it will be very streetable but able to handle plenty of NOS to make track days fun
