    well there was one just like it at carlise for $12,000, but it was modified. Mine is still original so its got to be worth more.

    actually $1500. All it really needs to be fun is a gillis valve.

    Hey, try to save her for me. I'd like to come out and see it sometime. We'll see what kind of money I'll have after I get these mustangs out from behind the garage. :nice:

    Well I have been seriously considering one for a while now and it will be good to have another car to drive while I do the swap.

    yeah it might cost that much the driver's side axle is bent, the C-clip got caught in the ring and pinion and pieces of them seemed to have gotten caught in the spider gears. Its all toast now.
