Re: 1971 351C to 460 BBF

I haven't done a conversion, but I do own a 1971 cougar 429. Should be an easy conversion since it was available from the factory. I'm sure someone sells mounts etc. I can say that the big block fits these cars so much better than the earlier cars.. the engine compartment is wider and longer than a ...

Re: Wanted 3 spoke rim blow steering wheel for 70 Cougar

I think 71-73 xr7 would also be the straight wood grain. Probably easier to find than a 70 straight grain rim blow center.
The rim blow wheel with cruise would be a neat setup to do to an earlier car.. it wouldn't be easy but it could be done.

Re: 1971 XR7 429 CJ 1-owner garage find!

I've known about this car for 8 years.. it belonged to a friend of a friend. The original owner knew it was special and kept it up as best as he could. He didn't want to sell it publicly because he was afraid someone would buy it to butcher it up or cut it up for parts. I inquired about it every onc...

Re: 1971 XR7 429 CJ 1-owner garage find!

Royce, thanks for the advice on the timing chain I will definitely check it out. Don, I plan on keeping it exactly like it is wheel covers and all. I just want to get it driveable and cleaned up as best I can. It's a Michigan car so it has some crunchy spots in the quarters but the underbody floors ...

Thanks for the compliments! Here's an interior shot.
Neal, loved your road trip story from your trip to Dearborn for the 50th.. I've made the drive from Seattle to Detroit a few times. It's a long one. I just wish this car was as nice as your blue 71!

1971 XR7 429 CJ 1-owner garage find!

Just picked up this 1971 xr7 429 CJ c-code from the original owner! Numbers matching engine, runs and drives. One repaint in the early 80's, off the road and garaged since 1983. Nice interior, and it came with the original window sticker and dealer order form. It's pretty loaded with a/c, power wind...
