This car is my baby .... It is one of 4 Foxes I have owned and was a replacement for my 84 GT350 that got crushed. My dad bought it for me for $100 and it wa... Show mores sad looking white car with a big hole int he hood but there was not a spot of rust and ran like a dream ... If a 2.3L 4cyl can be called a dream :) lol...
I took this pic the day I got it
This was just after paint ... Its not even dry yet .... My dad made the Cow scoop to cover the big hole .... And you can see a dent in the right fender . That thing just kept coming back lol
This was after it was all dry .. The auto store mixed the wrong paint and we ended up with almost flat black. It does not look it in the pics but within the next week it went flat and then some lol
At this time I was driving it with the 4 cyl still in there but on the first day I got a bit .... out of hand ... I decided to take a friend for a ride at 80mph down a dirt road sliding around corners and we hit a lil rock on the rocker panel and dented it ... I also lost the brakes on the way back lol
Well the next year I was looking for a bit more power and my dads friend had an old V8 that nobody knew what it was from or when .. Well I got that engine and my dad looked the numbers up in his books and found out the engine was from a 1968 Mustang and that just made me love it more.
It took a couple days but we got it in there and got it on the road but after driving it for a month we decided the lile 14" 4 lug rims just were not good enough so we converted it to 5 lug and put 15" rims on it and that made a huge difference...
That fall I was still driving it and hunting season had just started so we took a trip down to my uncles and my dad drove ... Well we did not make it. Fall in Maine is no time for a mustang lol we hit black ice went broadside into another car and down into a 8 foot deep ditch with 2 feet of mud/water with the other car rolling behind us and it stopped 10 feet behind us . The towtruck pulled us out and you could tell something was off on the car but we just could not point it out except the front right was pushed back ... The cop told the guy to load my car up but my dad wanted to see if it would start back up and it did ... everything still worked fine so the cop let us drive home ... 150 miles at night in a car with the left headlight pointing to the right and the right ones we could not even tell lol ...
The next day we went out to the garage to check the damage and we were shocked . The nose was pushed back and the car was twised really badly and the hatch and hood were wayyy out of alignment. We managed to get it straightned out and replaced the fender, nose, and a temp hood ... We used the hood from my 80 Mustang Ghia and the nose from my 85 LX
Thats the last pic I took of the body but that was a year ago ... The car its much better yet lol ... My Cowl hood is back on but we pulled the 302 to rebuild it and discovered it only had about 40,000 miles on it. I am dropping in a 351W with a 4bbl for now .
The 302, This is about a month ago after I put on my valve covers and put the Booster and racing master cyl on it but no I did not clean it up yet lol ... It it now but I have not taken a pic yet
Thats all I got for now but I'm in hopes to get some more pics if this stupid camera will work ... Show Less
