Hi my name is Audie, I have been on the other 460 site and have made some great friends and have got alot of good info. so I thought I would come over here to check out this great site and most of you are here !!! I have been a ford lover all my life but this is my first 460 BB car, I bought this car about 3 years ago and its been a fun project its a 1972 Gran Torino Sport fastback Q code it had been sitting since 1979 without motor or trans but was very solid and needed alot of work, so after 3 years and some hard work this is where im at 466 BB (from LIL Tweety thanks Rick and Susie !!) C6 trans, 3000 stall, 411 posi rear, new paint with my own stripe, all new interior, wheels and tires, and alot of other stuff that needed replaced from sitting. I still need to have the bumpers rechromed, finish the interior just put carpet in and radio, and have the exhaust done then it will be ready for the street, sorry for the long post check out the pics from start to where it is now, I will post more pics when Im done...
awesome site !!!

Glad you made it over Audie. Thats a sweet ride you have Smile ..............Guy's, Audie is a SUPER good guy, along w/his father inlaw and his wife's family. He is surrouned w/lots of Cool fords and has a very nice Torino. LiL Tweety's engine will make a nice asset to a beautiful car.
Audie, We are alittle rowdy on this site but I've met lots of these guy's and they are always willing to help. Have Fun. Smile

Audie,

So the pictures in the seperate links with the blue spark wires are pictures of the engine you got from Rick.I might take my car for a drive again on Sunday if the weather is nice like they're calling for.I wish you lived just a bit closer i would drive it to your house.

Yea Audie, It is put up and under cover for now. As soon as my Brother in Law gets me the rest of the parts for this truck maybe I can get it back to him . I'am starting on Mike Barkers (Goinpostal) engine as soon as the truck is gone. Then I will be doing some things to Tweety. Are you coming to the Seminar? It's a long ride but will be worth it.
Later Rick

Really like the paint! That car looks very nice. I have a real appreciation for these cars! Awesome looks and the ride is great too.
Mine is currently a rusty junk pile, but it does move under it's own power now. Yours really looks good! Thanks for sharing it.

The car has a ton of rust. I took that pic in it's best light. I will fix it up cause it has family history. Was a shine runner from parts of Kentucky that shall remain nameless at the family member's request! The thing had some springs in the back that rode like a hay-wagon when it was empty.
