guys near me in the sixties put a 427 Ford motor in a 69 Fastback Mustang.
That thing was brutal!

Nice car.
Interesting how the 63 Ford roof line looks like a 66-67 Satellite.

I remember the cars and they were fast, but they were also heavy and a 63 Max Wedge would eat it for lunch. They'd top end like crazy and with drum brakes all around, that could be a religious experience if you were ever in one of those old boats at speed!  :scared:
