I have the Roadrunner in the body shop and I have a 440 6 pack engine being looked at by a auto machinist. And have been collecting parts for this engine since it was apart and had only the block crank shaft and pistons and rods and heads.

Welcome..... Looks like a great project !
Did you race it?
How long have you had the car?
Do you have most of the parts to get it back together after the paint and body are done?

Nice story, I've got a 64 Ford that has family ties, they say sentimental value has no value but I think its priceless.

I am looking for a bench seat for my road runner and a friend said that a duster bench seat with an arm rest would fit. So what do all you folks think?

This would be a good time to take out that inner fenderwell bump to get a large tire up in there.
