American Iron Foxbody Racecar Motor is IN!!!
This has been a long time coming. We completed the motor almost two years ago now and the car has been sitting in the shop for over a year waiting to be washed. So we gave it a bath first.
Once all the water had been wiped off of it we brought it back into the shop and set it back in its resting place for us to be able to work on it here and there. We also pulled the engine off the stand and set it on the floor.
Up next was mating the transmission, clutch and bellhousing all to the motor. Here’s a video of us doing that install and mating the components together.
In that video you’ll see the install of the motor as well and the “oops” moments we had.
All in all the motor went in without any fuss. We also put in the taillights we made to look like 93 Cobra taillights. Something to make it look like a complete car. Ha!
