Welp, I've officially stepped in it...

Picked up this morning.
New 9" housing with the correct 3 link brackets installed, Currie 9+ axles and a nodular 3rd member with 3.50 gears and a Truetrac.
Rebuilt wide ratio Toploader, SKF bearings, billet input shaft and a SFI bell housing....I'm pretty stoked! He also gave me a nice roller 302 block that was used as mock up and a bunch of fluids. The moving company was giving him a hard time about some of the parts so, I win!

The 4spd even came with a nice cover he machined.

So do I!

I couldn't pass it up, I pretty much paid for a built 9" and got the rest for free. Now all I need to do is replace the "15 year anniversary trip" money before the wife finds out...we might not be able to go to Red Lobster this year.

My pops sent me a text yesterday, no words just this picture. I called him immediately and asked what the what? Turns out he was lost up near his house and stumbled across this lil sweetheart. The wife was super eager to get it out of the front yard so he gave her $350 and hauled it home!
I'll pull a few things off of it and he'll end of parting/scrapping the rest...Its just funny to me because my family gives me a hard time for draggin stuff home. I always do well when I sell or part something out, doesn't matter, I still get grief.

Wonder where I got it from.....

Hey Dan,

I thought I'd throw you a couple teaser shots of my latest mess (further progress will be very, very slow):

R.I.P. Lil Falcon....hahaha! You know those old vettes didn't handle that great to begin with right?

I'm leaning toward a torque arm in the back and some kind of something in the front....ford had some great designs throughout the years.

Thanks Craig, I'm looking forward to getting it in the garage and hacking away. I have some ideas and goals for the car, should be fun!

Paul......you're crazy! With that being said I'd love to see more of how you're putting that lil Falvette together. 2 things...Did you look at the Ford IRS and what are you drinking these days?
