History
Bought 2 years ago as a project with an incomplete bumper swap and incomplete 302 conversion. Getting parts when you dont know how it is supposed to be put together requires a lot of research and junkyard time. Thankfully, many Ford parts can be had from multiple vehicles.....some of which I can get my hands on!
