Newbie Ontario 71 Convert 5.0 EFI T5 5Spd
Welcome to the forum. Nice to see someone else from Ontario with a 71 convertible.

May see you out on the roads.

Howdy from Seattle. Love that color. More pics when you get a chance.

Hi from Phoenix. I read the details. First, a lot more love on this board for our years. Wink

The engine swap sounds great. Not surprized you had to stiffen the chassis. When you get a chance maybe do a write up on the swap with some pics in a build thread. It's interesting the exhaust manifolds worked with no mods, that could be valuable to someone looking to do a similar swap.

You will find a nice home here.

just a quick picture under the hood.
Yes some unfinshed things like the power distribution front PS corner and the clutch cylinder resevoir, and fuse box mounting.....but has been 100% operational for a long long time.
Will try to accumulate notes and details on the swap, btu really busy right now.
The aluminum cowel support braces are not REQUIRED, but make life much easier under the hood on these cars
