^^^Thats funny cuz our trucks look kind similar too. lol
Thanks for the comments!

Actually they also made a 170 I6 as well as a 200 I6 in the older mustangs.
Probably gonna keep the I6 til she blows. It seems to be a good motor. I haven't started it yet. The gas lines from the tank to the carb are rusted through and the trunk needs a few patch panels before it will hold the weight of full tank. I don't have a battery either. I want to get it in great shape mechanically then start on the body with the missing trim and new inner fenders and such. All the outer panels are solid.

Good luck with it. I had a '78 Pinto, which I really miss, but I sold it because it would cost thousands and thousands to fix it.

I used to date the daughter of the guy who hosted My Classic Car and the biggest piece of advice he gave me on my '67 Mustang was "It ain't fixed til you sell it."
