Vehicle Overview

Dream car since I was in high school. It’s a local car and bought new in December 1982 in San Antonio from Gillespie Ford. It’s is a 1983 Ford Fairmont 2dr “boxtop” It has a 4cylinder, 4 speed, bucket seat and manual everything. Great base model with a nice patina and minimal rust. My first swap and big project.

Future Plans

My plans are to swap a Mach 1 4.6 4V DOHC from a 2003 Ford Mustang Mach 1. I currently have the 4.6 4V motor, TR-3650 5speed, 1994 Mustang SN95 8.8 with 3:73 gears, 31 spline pumpkin, 31 spline 5lug axels, 2003 Mustang Cobra front and rear brake calipers and rotors, complete UPR tubular suspension with coil overs for the front and back. I also have the complete cooling system from SVE, which includes the radiator, dual electric fans, and catch can. Lastly, I have a set of 1998 Mustang Cobra wheels or Ford Crown Vic steelies. I haven’t decided which to use yet. I still need a Holly Terminator X Mod Motor 4V kit, fuel management system, and power steering system.
