I just picked up a '78 with a 351W, with the intention of doing some serious work on it. The full plan is to make something that can bomb down logging roads and through the desert and be able to do so for a week. It'll get a 30 gallon drum in the bed for a fuel tank, tube bumpers with skid plates, a mild lift, some custom suspension, a cage over the bed, and eventually a turbocharged 460. For now, I'm just trying to get it running and driving. The fuel system is hosed, so the drum fuel tank will be the second modification. I've already done the first, which is some 15" Cragar D-windows that I had been using on my Mustang. Then it's getting a dual exhaust with Cherry Bombs and shorty headers. The roof needs to be totally replaced. The vinyl top and sunroof made Swiss cheese out of it. Good news is that the engine runs and the FMX works! Just not with the key. Gotta replace the ignition switch, I think. And the fuse block is all corroded. Gonna take some work, but it's gonna be seriously fun!
