FS: 460 Big Block running. 9" Rear end.
First, I have a 1978 Ford LTD Country Squire station wagon for sale. It has the police interceptor 460ci big block, 3 speed automatic, and 9" rear end. The car has 204k miles on it - and the body shows this.
The story. I dropped compression in a cylinder in my daily driver, and decided to tear down the motor, rebuild it myself with all forged components. Thus, I needed a car to drive back and forth to work while I fixed my daily driver.
I purchased the LTD from the original owner (80+ year old man), who used to use it to tow, eh, whatever. After charging the battery, she purred to life. The only problem I had with her, was a flat tire, which I replaced. I put maybe 1000 miles on her going to work and back, and she did her job with honor.
Now that I've finished my daily driver, I want to find a proper home for her. I post here, thinking it would be a great car to get drivetrain parts from - build up into another car.
I'm asking $800, and have advertised locally, but I figured people on this forum might want dibs. Thus, for $800, you could get a working big block motor, transmission, and 9" rear end, and drive it home.
I'm located in Greenville, SC.
