Here's a factory 427 4 speed car that my dad did about 10 years ago.  Fun car to drive but hot as heck with that big block.

Beautiful car!  66?
Yep 66.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Hereís my dads. Iíve posted my Torino many a time on these threads. He bought this truck new in 1976 and has been working on it ever since. He literally spends hundreds of hours a year perfecting it. Use to be his main hunting/wood hauling truck since I was a kid. About 7 years ago he bought a Cummins and started transforming it to his show truck/hot rod. Donít let the big tires fool ya. This truck burns rubber all day with a modified 460 marine motor.

My goal is to restore a 70'S High Boy and drop a 7.3 Powerstroke in it.  Got my bro-in-law looking for victims.

My goal is the same but with a 70's crew cab. Love the look of those. It will go good sitting next to my 97 crew cab 7.3L.

I recently put in a set of Swamps injectors and 6 position TS chip along with rebuilding the fuel filter bowl and wow. Woke my truck up. Best 2k I've spent.

I also want to get a 67 Mustang. Been searching for a few months with not much luck. Had 2 of them in high school. Should have never sold them. They were 6 cylinders though but would have made great a restomod project.

I had a 72 crew cab with a built 390.  That would have been a fun rig to drop a 7.3 in.  I also have a 97 F-350 with a 7.3.  It's my cow, hay and boat hauling machine

Yikes is right! I've got 10.5 years until I have to do something similar! Have to figure out a way to slow down those years!
