Re: CMEDROP's Build Up

Now that the panel replacement was done. It was time to decide on a power plant. The plan is to drive this car from Canada to California down the coast. So I opted for an engine that has tons of aftermarket options and is better better on gas than the 390.
5.0L ho efi. Picked up some motor mounts for the 289 that fit perfectly.

Re: CMEDROP's Build Up

Once we had the belly of the car completely smooth, we moved on to the frame.


We took measurements and removed the leafs. From there we started to put the 8.8 diff with disc brakes in place.




We are using the front leaf mount for our lower bars on the 4link.





We are mounting the bags behind the axle. I borrowed the bags off our 51 ford project to help mock up the mounts. I will be running Airlift Dominator D2500s.
