The car was repainted some time in the late 70’s. It left the factory as a competition green Cougar but was repainted comp orange, as it stands. My intent was to bring it back to its original color and rebuild the original motor while enjoying it as a driver.

The original motor 351C is currently out of the car and has been sitting idle in my shop since I've owned it. The only information that was passed on to me was that the original motor was taken out because it needed to be rebuilt. In its place is another 351C that I believe came out of a 1971. This current motor runs strong, burns no oil, and needs nothing. Yes, both motors will go with this sale.

When I purchased the car, it had a 750 double-pumper on it which I replaced with a new (less than a year) Holley 650 vac sec carb. Gas mileage is so much better! Both motors are intact with proper intake and exhaust manifolds, distributors, and valve covers. The current air cleaner (seen in the photos) I believe is for the same 1971 motor.

At the same time the 351C was matched up to a C6 which it still currently has. I never picked up the original FMX trani from the previous owner and therefore that is missing. At this time, although the trani shifts strong and tight manually, its not shifting automatically. We've checked vacuum and the modulator but to no avail. I am currently looking for someone knowledgeable in the area to take a deeper look into the shifting issue.
