    Looks like it's in pretty good condition. Does it run or is it a project?

    The engine (original numbers matching) was very tired, The valvetrain was shot, Being rebuilt, other than that the car is completely original. It even has it's factory paint.

    So, are you keeping the engine to original specs, or are you tweaking it a bit?

    Hows the interior, BTW? Should have asked that question the first time around, but the last week or two has been super busy and has left me apparently brain damaged. I got my first ticket racing a friend who had a yellow SS 396. 100+ in a 30 mph zone. I had a '66 Olds Dynamic 88 with a 425, 11:1 heads, and oddly enough a big ass two barrel Holley. 9 mpg on the highway with the a/c on.

    Back in the days when gas was 40 cents a gallon, I suppose?
    When you're left out of the club, you know it. When you're in the club, you don't see what the problem is.

    Actually back then, I remember it as being around a quarter for a gallon. Good thing, because I made 75 cents an hour, but didn't have payroll taxes or social security deductions

    It looks great to me! A lot of miles but overall-it's not bad!

    I'm now at 143K miles, still have the tires that came on it when I bought it. Haven't had to do a thing to it other than oil changes, and also replaced the spark plugs about 3 months ago. Still rides smooth as can be and straight as an arrow, needless to say I'm super impressed with the quality of this Ford. If it makes it to spring without any major repairs, my plan is to sell it and buy a 2014 or 2015. I've already got cash saved up for a full exhaust and methanol injection. That will add around 100 horsepower to what it already puts out.

    I'm now at 23.1 mpg average since the day I bought it. Much better than I was anticipating when I bought it.
