    I have a 1977 302 motor that came out of a modified Pinto that I bought from a friend. The motor is in excellent shape but has been in storage for about 15 years.

    So I bought this Fairlane back in May. It has a '77 302 (the shortblock is from from the mid 90s) and a three on the tree. At first the plan was using it as a daily driven project, but that didn't happen. I was offered to buy it for $1700 after my Dodge had blown two engines in four days. So...
