Re: 100% original barn find 85 GTS, upgrade or keep?

I have been thinking about a swap after getting this one out, wasnt to bad and a first try for me. This is probably all over the boards, havent really looked yet, but what is the biggest engine that will fit without mod's to engine mounts? and without spending a fortune.. http://www.flickr.com/photo...

Re: 100% original barn find 85 GTS, upgrade or keep?

Well longrain. This I why I ask, it's hard to tell early on when some rides are better to keep origanal, this ride is all but radiator, 100% off the show room floor original. I can have fun driving it either way :) glad some shelby owners didn't :)
