Why put a 383 stroker in???
Surely the engine should be Ford 351...
I had a friend in the 80's that had one, often drove it . Stunning car, but should be original at that price🤔 my 1c...

The original was a 4V 351C but it can be stroked to even a 408! Rassie.

Not sure, have never actually seen this car. In my view the wrong engine severely impacts this cars value, well to me anyway.

Conversions are all good and well but in some cases not ideal for the collector car market.
