I have a 65 convertible, C Code, 289 2bbl. I know very little history of the specific car, but it does run. It does appear to be the original engine with few new parts to have get it back to running ability. It does run, but I'm not confident in her reliability and safety on the road. So my project begins. My thoughts are to pull the engine, c4 auto transmission and replace with 5.0 EFI, new rear-end, disk brakes (basically modernize the car) and keep all original parts in case I ever want to restore later in life. My main goal is to be able to reliably and safely drive the car. What are the forum's thoughts? Thanks in advance for advice.
