Isn't this what it's all about? If you decide to fabricate your car into something you really want, it IS more work, but the rewards are greater for you. Restoring really means, using original parts that bolt right in. But, if you want more modern (and reliable) parts, go for it.

5.0Liter and 351Windsor engines are very available. In fact, you could rob an EEC from a doner car and use it right out of the box, injection and all. - Dave
