I had brought this car to the POCA Fun Rally but it was not running in fact it did not have the drive train in the car. It sat out in my barn for quite a while, with the economy I just did not have the money. This year we have been working on the car and the motor is getting built right now. So I thought I would share some photos.

Kevin -

You have to be careful posting up pictures of "Group-5 like" cars...

Some might call it "Hideous Butchery" (you have probably seen the thread)....

Cool

Your car looks good, good luck with the build!

PS.... I'm just joking... I don't want anyone to get upset....

Yes it does have a group 5 look to it. As I understand it the car was a stock bodied car running at riverside and slammed in to the wall. after that it definitely had some hideous Butchery going on.(Yes I saw the thread. I love the stock bodied cars, but I also love many of the other looks also) So now you know why the fiberglass on the front and rear.
Les had found a 351 Cleveland for sale and we bought it for $300. Supposedly had been rebuilt and came as extra motor with the guys Pantera. We pulled a valve cover and it looked rebuilt and still had assembly lube showing. Took it apart and found out it was a Boss 351, 4-bolt main, Boss Crank, boss rods,but with milder pistons and 4V heads. Standard bore! We pulled it apart and went through it and had it checked out, cleaned and gone through. Block is ready!

Also one of our club members had a set of CHI aluminum heads he had pulled out of his car when he had blown his motor. Bought them after having them checked out to make sure they were not hurt.
Had them reworked and all rebuilt with a little massaging. The heads are done.

We had ordered a custom set of Ross racing pistons, with dome especially made for the heads. They just came in, but I have not taken a photo yet. Everything getting balanced. Just received cam. Les had a brand new set of Boss lifters still in Ford boxes.
