History of this Vehicle
The history of this car is unknown before about 2000 or so. The previous owner bought it around then. The car was an original 351 car. It had a 351 Windsor It would have been a 2v engine. There was a 351 Windsor in the car when the previous owner bought it. The transmission was a FMX automatic. The previous owner paid a large sum to have the body restored and all rust removed. Unfortunately he was misled about the quality of the workmanship of the guy he hired. The “moron” working on the car used bondo and pop rivets to do the rust repair. A lot of the structural steel was bent or rusted. The car had been hit in the left side sometime in the past and someone did some lousy repair work. So far I’ve put new fender apron/shock tower assemblies, radiator core support, core support braces, front cross member, firewall, heavy gauge torque boxes, all new 1 piece floor pan, front frame rails, partial rear frame rails, and other metal. In the near future new rear quarter panels, wheel wells, and trunk floor will be installed.
Plans for this Vehicle
The car is going to be a Boss 302 clone on the exterior. It will be painted 1970 Grabber Orange (it’s currently 2007 Mustang Vista blue). The car will have the factory stripes and factory style rear wing and chin spoiler. I will be using a Boss 302 Hurst style shifter and Hurst T-handle.
Under the hood there will be no resemblance to a Boss 302 as the engine is a 351 Windsor block using Windsor style heads instead of Cleveland style heads like a Boss engine does. Eventually I hope to fabricate a cold air induction system utilizing the top of a 1970 Mustang Shaker scoop on a custom air box. This is due to the fact that a factory Shaker air cleaner assembly would sit too high with the Victor Jr intake I’m using.
I plan to use the car as a weekend warrior and cruiser. It will also see some time on the drag strip with open headers and wrinkle wall slicks. Because of this, it will never be a “show car”. I plan for it to look clean. It will never be “original”. It will never be a garage queen.
