Well, it has been an EXTREMELY busy week but I have gotten through it. First of all, we were finally able to find the 2013 Lincoln MKT that the First Lady wanted for Christmas. As some of you may recall, she had a Tuxedo Black 2010 and she wanted the same color, except she wanted AWD and Ecoboost on her new one. After many false starts, we found one in Columbus, Mississippi and had it shipped to the ONE Lincoln dealership here in Memphis. As of right now, she has the ONLY 2013 MKT in Memphis.

I finally "pulled the trigger" on my acquisition of the 1969 Mach 1 from my Restorer. This is the one that I am putting the 428CJ engine in that currently resides in "Fire" (my 1973 Mach 1). I am currently trying to decide what exterior color to use prior to re-hanging doors and fenders as the interior has to be done. The external color will determine what color interior will be used. I know over the next several months, I shall be busier than a one legged man in the proverbial butt-kicking contest since I will be working on two major projects.

I do have some pictures of the '69 but they are not worth sharing at this time as everything is stripped down but it is a very STRAIGHT unit with ABSOLUTELY no rust or bondo, the perfect candidate for an infusion of FE powerSmile. Of course, with this acquisition I had to join yet another Site but they have made me feel very welcome and reminded me of y'all with all the request for pictures. I shared the "ugly" ones with them so that they might appreciate where it started from when they view the future ones.

The journey begins!

BT, The MKT is a very cool car. The 1969 is outstanding! Is it going to be mostly stock or a go fast piece? Congrats! Chuck

I am pulling the 428CJ out of "Fire" (my '73 Mach 1) and putting it into the '69. I also have a 428CJ cast iron tailshaft C6 that I am putting behind it. I will be putting a 545 with a Broader C6 in Fire.

I currently have a Comp 294S (solid lifter) camshaft in the 428 but I will probably go with a Roller. I am debating on whether to keep the C8OE-N Heads or go to some Aluminum RPM. I REALLY want this to be PRIMARILY a "street" piece since I already will have some very "Heavy" stuff for the naysayers. LOL

I plan on painting it Raven Black with the red/orange markings. I tell you Chuck, I am really getting pumped at completing BOTH projects. As Roy knows, I have five (5) big boxes of 545 parts (Ported TFS Streets, solid roller camshaft, all the MSD ignition stuff, complete fuel system, modified 1000HP carb, etc,. etc) sitting in my den. The problem has been that I will have to take the 429SCJ (four bolt mains) block a couple of hundred miles to have the screw-in freeze plugs installed and I have been putting it off...but I digress. LOL

I think I answered your questionSmile.
