    well to start the car was on its way to the crusher and was intercepted by a buddy and sat in a field for almost 3 years when i got it from him for $500. it was stripped good, it had no seats, engine, trans, efi harness, and alot more. so here is the best part, the pics:nice:
    this is when it was still in the field

    here is the start to the engine, it is not going to be staying because im getting another engine to build up some but this one is from a 1988 E250 van (5.0). the whole efi wont work so i found a hell of a deal on a set of heads, oem intake W/ TB and all sensors but no egr, dizzy, and oil pan kit for $30, so that got me on track for efi not carb like i was going to do.

    thats why it was stopped buy my buddy, not only is it nice, other than the hood and wing it is original paint and has never had body work done. it has a small rust spot on the driver fender but its not bad at all. i think the previous owner used it as a parts car.:shrug:

    yeah it was rough looking but had to much potential not to buy, someone broke the center console below the radio and broke the hell out of the arm rest and took the rear speakers but some time and ebay got the arm rest replaced and a friend of mine, (188slo50) sold me the center console and a bunch of other stuff i needed. it also had no keys and title so that cost $170 to get keys and title but now i have title in hand its time to start bolting things on

    its a GOOD day, i went out after work to cut my stock H pipe out to take to the scrap yard for some quick cash and thought the cat back looked clean so i looked closer and it already has a DYNOMAX catback with super turbo mufflers. that saved me a nice chunk of change and it should sound good with the 1-3/4 BBK long tubes and BBK h pipe i got the other day. anyone have that catback? how do they sound?

    Good save man, nice to see it come together.

    Does the shortblock have valve relief pistons?

    i dont know? i did not plan on pulling the heads on this engine. its a non roller engine and all i plan for it is a small cam. a buddy has a roller 302 with edelbrock performer efi intake for me to build to make some power. whats killing me is i have this engine for my 67 just setting at the shop.
