History I have owned this beauty since January 2015. In January 2018, I had started building a custom 302/306, with a new Performance C4 transmission to boot. Expected to push 375-400 HP (will post results when done and dyno'd).
Tinted windows. Factory hood scoop.

Complete redone interior. In process of converting to bucket seats w/console, floor shifter, factory tachometer and Shelby style steering wheel.

In-Car Entertainment
None (the sound of the Flowmaster exhaust is entertainment enough)

Under the Hood
Brand new, custom 400+ HP Ford 302 stroked out to a 306, naturally aspirated mated to a built Performance C4 transmission.
Edelbrock aluminum heads.
Edelbrock dual plane RPM intake.
Edelbrock cam.
