    When I working in the garage the owner scored a LX for $50 because the motor was blown. He dropped a 460 in it! The front suspension did not like it at all. He ended up putting a GT front end under it. A month later the frame was twisted from the power of the 460.

    exactly its a project car, cant complain about what i paid for it either, the interior is mint though it doesnt look worn at all, all the rough spots are on the outside, and i successfully finished off the 4 banger in it

    With the mint interior and the price you paid for it I think its a great buy. I bet that ford will be badass when you get it all together. Did you get any video of finishing off the 4 banger?

    I am not a huge fan of foxbodies but cant beat that price for a project car.

    As said before the 302 is a cheap and easy motor to get parts for. the 427 SCJ would be awesome but much more dinero.

    sadly no i didnt get any video of it, i literally turned the key just because i wanted to laugh at the sound of the ford dying and it ran for 30 seconds and died....im going with a 302 for sure just for cost wise, itll probably be FI even though Carbed would be nice,phoebeisis it is pretty up here, it does almost make up for the fact it gets down to the negatives in the winter

    The pic of your truck towing the project car on the trailer was the only good one of the lot, as it's the only one with a GM vehicle in it!

    No, you don't want to do this motor in that car. This is a big block and very, very heavy. No good in a car like yours. Too much weight in the front end. I would get a 351 crate motor, maybe a plug n play unit with fuel injection and the electronics on it, if you can afford it. Would look real nice in there.

    In any event, it sounds like it could be a fun if not very time and money consuming project. So I hope you can post a thread with some pictures of your progress some time down the road.
