    Yes it is, the front end is the ugliest thing on the car, i suppose the reason why you havent posted any pics of it. Assuming this is what the front end looks like. (71-73)




    I suppose you couldnt afford a nice looking mustang? Im torn between your mustang and the mustang II, which is uglier?


    Heres a nice mustang, like i said, after 1970 you might as well scrap em.

    To each his own, but the majority of people will tell you any "mustangs" made after 1970 shouldnt even have the name mustang on it.

    Do things for other people.

    I happen to like the top one better. I think the front end looks more aggressive.

    I'd love to have a 69 Fastback with a 427 in it. That would also qualify as a "big block"

    I bet you wouldn't turn down a 351c big block

    I know a mechanic used to restore old Mustangs then trailer them to Cali to sell at auction. A 351c is more than enough to turn one of those cars into a tire shredder. I hope you are at least planning on converting the drum brakes to discs.

    When I think "big block" and old school muscle cars, it's always the 427/428/460 from Ford, the 454/455 from GM, or the HEMI from Dodge that comes to mind.

    I still think of the 396 as a big block in the Chevys as well.....The 351c is probably the smallest big block....I plan on converting the drum brakes over

    A 396 is a big block....tard. The displacement doesn't determine wheather or not the engine is a big block. And once again, a 351C is a SMALL BLOCK. Ask the owner of the car, he would know.

    Maybe you should just stick to something you know. Like cutting grass or washing people's cars?

    Ok. Do you realize what this is actually telling you? Here, let me break it down for you...

    FORD did some research on the 385 big block series for performance enhancements. From there, they decided to take those enhancements and apply them to a different engine block. In this case, the 351. Just because they applied the 385 technology to the 351 block, does not make the 351 a big block!

    Throughout the years, there's been differing values used for determining if an engine was a "big block" or "small block". Some argue physical size. Others argue displacement. Others argue production HP numbers (ie, non-modded engines). Still others argue the crank journal sizes OR stroke OR....well you get the point.

    One make does not fit that mold. That would be Pontiac. The external dimensions of their blocks - from the lowly 301 all the way up to the 455 - share the exact same external dimensions. That's why its so popular to take a 301 powered car and drop a built 400/455 into it. Even all the accessories move over from one block to the next.

    From one classic car owner to another - nice car but you don't know much about it. Please take a few minutes and do some reading on your car so that when you actually take it out to a cruise, you can speak intelligently about it.

    Here's mine:



    1978 Y88 Pontiac Trans Am - PHS documented
    **Y88 denotes Gold special edition car. Included gold accents on T-tops which I have in storage, gold emblems instead of red, gold turned dash bezel, gold steering wheel spokes, etc.
    L78 Pontiac 400 V8 engine. This is the lower of the two Pontiac engines, the higher performance being the W72 package.
    AC/auto/PW/PL/PT (power trunk)
    Big 3 done in 4 gauge for now
    Knu Konceptz battery adapters - top post. I converted from the stock side posts.
    140A 1 wire alt - stock was 60A 3 wire


    Currently the numbers matching engine is sitting in my basement and a 1970 4 bolt main 455 punched 60 over is sitting between the wheel wells.

    Audio wise - Pioneer single DIN mounted in the map pocket with Pioneer 4 channel amp driving (2) Pioneer 6x9 4ways in the rear package tray. Cost me a little over $300 which was in my budget for audio. Future plans include adding (2) 4" speakers to the center console to bring the stage forward and a sub - probably 8-10" in size in the trunk.
