Can't wait to see what happens with this one after that big block Cougar!

HAving trouble finding a 351W. If not that a 331 stroker.
Saw a Windsor on Sacramento CraigslistActually my daughter and grandson I didn't know about until 1 year ago. Her mother didn't tell me about her when we met while she was still in the Army. Funny how things come back around. This Zephyr was built the same time my first one was. I'll have to find out how close the VINs are. My oldest son also born the same year, 10 months later, then my daughter.
Careful what you wish for.
I'm still looking for a 351W and C-4. Getting harder to find. I'd even travel back east a ways to get the right set up.
Those years are the worst. Peak of the EPA restrictions before all the magic went inside an ECU. Vacuum hoses and valves and all kinds of compromises that got solve quickly with EFI. After working for years on the increasing complexity, I was amazed when I looked under the hood of my brand new 1986 Tempo that only had 1 vacuum line that went to the MAP sensor.If this is more of a streeter daily, I'd look at the challenge of keeping most of the stock stuff and doing the power adder thing for kick-ass fun. 300+hp in that light chassis on pump gas and AC has some kind of attractive charm… for me anyway. I guess I've seen so many "typical" build-ups, a challenge like that could have some impressive results. A wicked sleeper when everybody does the big V8 thing. I guarantee you'll get more jaw-drops when you lift the hood than a 385 or LS! Just an idea. Do your thing!
