Yes, I built that entire car myself including the engine. Had 400 miles on it in 1988 when I pulled the engine down to a bare block. Brass freeze plugs, tapped all the oil galleys and installed screw in plugs, new cam brgs and everything. Had it balanced, fly cut pistons for 1.69 1.90 valve clearence [86 had 0 deck] Car ran 12.80's in 1988, before blowers and nitrous. 31 spline, 5 lugs, 4.10's, Auburn Pro. 5 spd. Was a fun car.

Thanx, chromed gas tank straps, sway bar and oil pan. Drive shaft loop, aluminum drive shaft. Real oil and fuel pressure guages with braided line. Everything on this car is top shelf. SPS rod bolts, Harland Sharp 1.6 roller rockers with screw in studs and guide plates, hardened push rods, ported E7 heads 1.60, 1.94. Car was running 12.80's in 1988 before chips, blowers and nitrous. Still got 15mpg city.

I bought the car brand new in 1986. Got my 70 Mach1 in 1998. Got tired of the Capri and sold it. Then I bought the 67 Cyclone. I have two great cars now, plus I'm broke!!!! :smt005
