There pictures are all from the rebuilding process in summer of 2019

Moving the car to Matilla’s shop. I was afraid to drive it.
Engine removed at the shop I took the car to second. Note the gift from Mattila. in the upper right is my brand new brake reservoir covered with RUST from setting outside his shop. No easy way to get that rust removed.
the broken engine removed.
Top of the engine block. My car has one of those infamous Mexican 302 blocks. Mexico is stamped in those letters. Not sure how this block got in this car. Supposedly NO Mustangs, Shelby or not that came with a Mexican Block.
My new engine on the dyno
New motor. Aluminum heads, new water pump, fuel pump, painted engine and oil pan.
Engine installed with new Holley Brawler carb. Note the one piece Export brace on the fire wall behind the engine.
Ready to install the new motor to my car
