'72 build

Post by floatingcowboy »

looking to have fun with this one, on stands, drivetrain out and interior mostly out, was gonna swap in a mustang ecoboost but have decided on the Taurus SHO ecoboost and all its guts. :wink: I am evaluating rust damage and body work at the moment so power plant is on the back burner for a couple years.

Cool year, I have seen a few really nice '70s Mav/Comet builds, made me want one but need the '64 on the road first so probably will never happen.

See Ya,

Cool idea, wonder where the sump is on that particular motor. I know the late 90's continental had a mod motor (4.6 v8) with a front sump oil pan that was desirable for engine swaps into older cars. While Mustang and Mark 8's with a 4.6 had a rear sump that would not work on stock suspension older Fords. Good luck, those motors really run strong in a very heavy SHO, it will be really fast in a 72 Comet.
