Re: My 1971 Mercury Montego Mx

I've been really slow on this build. The frame mounts I made out of 3/16 plate and some square tubing. The oil pan I got from a 2000 lincoln continental. It's a front sump. The steering I have out because I'm going with a rack and pinion setup. You could easily use the stock steering. I notched the shock towers to give me room to run the air conditioner lines and just a little extra room. The motor did fit without doing that but there was only about a half inch on either side. You could easily just put a 4.6 in and use a seperate engine controller to get it going. I'm using all the stock stuff from my donor 96 mustang.
