I just want to say hello to everyone and introduce my little girl. She is a 73 Mach I, h code, Automatic, C6 color( meadow gold).I got her to refurbish and make into a daily driver. I have taken off the fenders to check for rust and removed the taillight panel, trunk lid, trunk pan, and right front inner fender and battery stand. The interior is shot will have to replace it. I have been scrubbing, sanding, grinding and cutting rust since day one. I found out that my engine is not a 351 but at least 429 or 460, barely fits in the engine bay. Is it a good thing or a bad thing to have a 429?

Welcome to the site from Virginia. Post up some pics of your project. For a daily driver I'm not sure if there is much difference in the gas mileage between the 351 or 428/429! :D

Welcome from Arkansas. I would rather have a 429 any day but a 460 will work just as well

Thanks

Welcome from west Michigan.

 

The gulf coast of Alabama is one of my favorite places. Here in west Michigan we call Gulf Shores the "Dutch Riviera" at least for a week in the spring. :D
