Bought it as a "roller" just over a year ago. Ended up having to do a lot more work than I anticipated, but it's getting closer now. I've never driven it or seen it go down the track so I'm hoping for the best.

Just from the small picture in your avitar, it looks very similar to a Falcon that one of my friend's had.
Unfortunately, it was Chevy powered, and had been Chevy powered from 1969 up until like 2009 when he sold it without the motor.
Some other guy bought it and planned on putting a 427 SOHC FE motor in it.

Hmmm, my friend sold his here in the Victorville/Hesperia area. It was already caged and tubbed with a narrowed 9" inch rear and the front shock toweres had been trimmed back to clear the Chevy with fenderwell exit type of headers.

It was kind of a hack job, it was built in the early 70's and was rather crude in its execution....but it sure did boogie!!

I kept bugging him to put a Ford in it, but he was like "Then I have to start all over again".

So he sold it and bought a 71 Nova thats got a nasty 540 big block in it....makes 930 horsepower on the motor.

But the guys who bought his Falcon, they had a local guy here do a bunch of chasis work and current updates to it, and he chopped off the old stock type front end, and made a tubular style setup with a straight axle. They guys who bought it said they were going to put a supercharged 427 SOHC Cammer in it.......now that's justice!!
