Engine Decisions 

So the original, numbers-matched engine MEL 430 is going to the engine builder to see what will be involved in a rebuild on it, & whether or not there's anything hindering us from doing this (irreparable damage, budget, etc. . . ) If there are issues, we have a Ford 460 (385) and C6 transmission lined up for swapping. I'll update on what the decision is, once we know. Body work by Rust 2 Rodz, Marshfield, MO Engine by Eagle Machine, Buffalo, MO
