      Hey thanks. Yes, it's a full interior although I do need to do something with the front seats. I have cheapo race buckets in it and they're not very comfortable. It does have the full back seat and all in it, full carpeting, door panels, etc. The 331 has been rock solid. I've had it together since about the year 2000. I Reringed it in about 2004 although it didn't even need it. It's funny you mentioned you have an '87, I have one that I finished a complete restoration on about two years ago. It's an '87 LX with T-Tops which is pretty rare. Anyway, I got a set of out of the box 195 cc Canfields for it. I'm going to pull the 331 out of the '84 and put the box stock Canfields on it with about a 236 or 240 degree cam. Something very streetable and yet should be able to run somewhere in the mid to upper 11s. I have a 347 Sportsman block that I built for the '84 with gas ported pistons, all forged with a zero balanced crank. All lightweight stuff in this one whearas my 331 is a heavy duty nitrous motor actually that I just chose to rev the **** out of. It took it well although it leaves some hp on the table for high rpm use. My new motor, the origional plan was to shift this thing at 8,600 rpms (I have a custom solid roller cam for it) but since I've had so much transmission trouble even behind the 331, I've backed off on that. I decided to go with a custom solid roller and shift it at about 7,800 rpms like I have been. That way, I think the trans may live a while. Tell me about what you have in the '87 so far.

      Hey, welcome to stangnet. Here's a launch vid. YouTube - Launch It's not that high of quality but you'll get the idea. My car is in the closest lane. This pass was last summer. I had a new best 60' time of a 1.450 but never got to finish the pass because the trans locked in 2nd gear. My previous best was a 10.92 with a 1.576 60'. Didn't get to run it this summer though. I'm putting a new combo together and have just been so busy with other stuff....
