latest project
#1
Latest project for winter. I am in the process of finally putting my daughters 77 back together. It is going to school on Monday for collision repair class to be painted. There is going to be an awful lot of sanding before paint or primer.

Finally making progress on the 77. The front clip hood and trunk lid are all sanded and primed. The doors will be primed next week and after christmas break will be starting on the body.
The delima that I have now is do I go with the 4 cylinder or go with a 302. Can't ask the daughter because she doesn't know it is being restored. I'm leaning towards the 302 but not sure.

I would go with the 302 and keep it mild

Keep in mind it uses a unique smaller c4 bell housing if it is an auto.

302 for sure. I think it would pay off in the long run.

Maybe an EcoBoost V6... well, maybe NOT! Big Grin

A turbo 4 banger would be cool, an SVT Mustang II
