the car is as it sits when i bought it hasnt been detailed or anything so as you can see well kept,ive decided to go 5.7 now as ive been told its a lot easier and my motor is already cammed so save some $$$ build time shouldnt be to long have running gear etc just need mounts modified loom extractors starter tailshaft etc and a bit more research,so if anyone has parts forsale let me know

Car looks mint man, but imo, keep it white and pleeeeaaassee leave the interior as is, especially because its Madeira red and is rare as all hell

Should be sweet with 6 litre conversion, good luck

Oops didn't it last post, should be sweet with a 5.7 I meant to say

i know the vn 5 litre kframe goes straight in no worries, so i couldnt see why the vs one would be any different, should be pretty straight forward conversion.i know the transmission tunnel will need to be massaged a bit if u are going to be putting a turbo 700 behind it
