Just bought my first car.

Hello everyone, my name is Augie. I just recently bought a 1971 Grande with a 302. The guy I bought it from said that his friend pulled the motor out of it and put it in an F-150. Then, the guy I bought it from bought both the car and the truck from him and took the engine back out of the truck and set it in the car.

 

So far I have managed to get the proper fly wheel and torque converter for the car and installed the engine back into the car.

 

I'm from a little Swedish town of about 3500 people in central Kansas. Currently attending welding school working towards an associates degree.

Welcome to the forum from WA! Make sure to post any questions/findings/comments on here that you have as it can enrich the collective knowledge of these great cars. :D

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, you sure as Hell don't have time to do it right the second time.
