200+ MPH Club!!!
Jack tools would have come in handy 2 days ago when I had a flat. Bought 2 new tires.
seriously, what in the smurf?According to the old timer that i bought it from, his 19yr old grand son drove the burb over and parked it blocking access to the back of their property. He asked him to move the truck and this was the most insulting thing the teen had ever heard so in defiance he set the interior on fire. upside is the fire department was fast and put it out before it spread too far ...
YUNOBOXYOLDFOXBODAY?The chassis has arrived!
Its a 99 V6 Auto car originally. cloth interior but power everything. A friend of mine got it new in 99 and drove it until 2011 when he sold it to another friend who pulled the motor and was going to terminator swap it but ended up having a kid. Its sat since then and he finally asked me if i wanted to buy it since i was eyeballing mustang chassis's for this build i wanted to do. We made a deal and here it is.
Already has a GT 8.8 under it with 4.10 gears and came with lots of extras including some mosier 31 spline chromolly axles.
Going to test fit with the bare aluminum block i have to see if i am going to need an oil pan or not (i think im going to) and then slam the cam/valve springs into the motor and get it ready to drop in place. i think im going to end up needing to hammer the trans tunnel out a bit but ill find out once i start test fitting stuff. excited to get to work.
That fits nicely.wife and i went out this morning to do a test fit with the bare alum block i have. wanted to see truck oilpan clearance as well as trans tunnel etc. slammed the spare truck pan i have as well as the spare heads i have on it to see what we have.
You can see how thrilled she is. she doesnt exactly like mustangs but gets the cheap racecar idea.
LIKE A GLOVE!
oil pan hangs really low. going to need to order the muscle car pan.
headed out to install the cam into the motor and see if the heads on it are castechs and if so they are coming off and the 862s i have on the shelf will be going on. Next update should have lots of fun motor pics while we are working on it.
Might also setup the gopro in timelapse mode to video it.
