Hello,

 

this is my march 71 `vert which I purchased 1 year ago totally disassembled (preowner stopped project 15 years ago...)- so now I am organizing all parts which are missing

 

when car will be 50 years old project should be finished

 

pre owner mixed up transmissions  :huh:  - so now I only have C4 from a 66 fastback with 289 bellhouse but I think I will have to mount in a >=71 C4 or new C4 ...

 

I am looking forward to learn much from this forum and to change knowledge

Welcome from Western Australia, yes very blue and mine will be very red, at least you have most of the bodywork sorted which is a major effort although one thing that takes a lot of time is finding all the bits to put it back together.

Nice !! That is a beautiful blue!! Keep us posted on your progress. The early transmission from the 66 shouldn't be a problem. I am running one in my 71. The only difference is the input shaft splines for torque converter. As long as yours came with the proper torque converter you wont have an issue.

Hallo,

 

Given the cost of fuel there, you might want to look at finding an Automatic Overdrive Transmission for that car. Any from the late 80s Ford with 5.0L engines would work and you would not have to modify the car to make it fit.
