5.0 Mustang GT rebuild
This is my 87 GT that I bought back in August of 2002...It was basically
left for dead in the backyard of its previous owner. I only paid $375 for
it with no motor.
It had a long list of problems including...Transmission only had 2 working
gears,cracked winshield,headlights,tailights,old peeling tint,bent cowl
panel due to the hood flying up,alot of surface rust,and some bad rust on
the hatch,door and passenger front fender.The interior was full of trash
and dust, since they left the window down.
I ended up selling this car after it came along ways to its what was
current estate...but unfortantly the kid I sold it too trashed it then sold
it to another owner who trashed it even more :(.
I then ran into this car in summer of 08...offered to buy it back,went to
go pick it up,and he sold it from under me to a guy who scoops up local fox
bodys and parts them out or destroys them:(. I only wish I knew what
happend to it so I could restore her again...but anyways thanks for

This will be the first in a series on the engine build for my Cobra. This
is a 351W bored 0.030" with a 408 stroker crank. The intake was converted
to fuel injection and featured in a previous video. I will list components
as much as I can.
