History My car was built on 11/24/67 in San Jose, CA. It was originally a 289 with a C4 automatic. I swapped in a 5.0 roller motor out of a 2000 explorer. I also pulled the C4 and installed a T5 manual transmission out of a 93 Mustang. It originally had 4 wheel manual drum brakes, I installed 4 piston KH brakes that were available on the 65-67 Mustangs and the rear has a Cobra conversion fitting 11.65" 04 Cobra rear disc brakes.

I recently installed a 9" axle with an eaton truetrac and 3.70 gears in favor of the stock open diff 2.79 geared 8" axle.
