my 1993 notchback project

Posted May 9th, 2008 at 09:39 AM by BWAL

i took delivery of a 1993 4 cylinder notchback last night. it was too good of a deal to turn down. i'm not too sure what i'm gonna do with it yet, but it will definitely be a long term project for me. it has the straightest body i've ever seen on a foxbody. no rust, bondo, nothing. not even a dent. it runs great too and starts on the first try every time. i plan on keeping everybody updated with the progress of the car with this blog. here is the condition i got it in. the fenders, hood, bumpers, quarter windows, and interior are all out of the car, but everything came with it. putting everything back in/on the car will probably be the first thing i do. here are some pics.. don't pay any attention to the current paintjob though. i think whoever previously painted it might have been slightly retarded. i definitely have my work cut out for me...

    no way that fixed up car is that same hunk o junk as was in the first picture.

    You say you threw on a turbo charger?
    how was it as easy as just throwing it on?

    well v606er, i just stood back about 10 or 15 feet, and gave it a nice little toss.. landed right in place, and it's been running great ever since

    and dantheman, it's just for looks.. the pipe doesn't lead anywhere lol

    That's a nice looking project. Have you considered a 2.3Turbo Coupe engine build/swap? Easier and more affordable than a turbo 5.0 swap and you can make those little 2.3s scream, especially if you stroke it out to 2.5.

    yeah that has definitely crossed my mind, bigfatts, but it's just something about a turbocharged v8 that makes me pitch a tent in my pants

    it's not really dual exhaust.. one of the previous owners thought it would be a good idea to just hang a pipe there for looks

    it looks like somebody "came" across a nice project car here, though it does look like it must've had something in the "rear" since it's basically missing, make sure you "stick" to it man... lol.. couldn't resist dude
