    Better than buying it based on the photo's and finding out once it arrived

    Agreed. I worked in the automotive auction industry for years and learned how shady some people can be. Never buy a car sight unseen if it can be avoided.

    Am I the only one who's relieved? I really wanted to see the E39 live on.

    Fair enough. Unfortunately it's not over yet...

    My dad got a 1967 mustang S-code 390 automatic car from my stepmom for his 10th wedding anniversary. This was 15+ yeas ago. He started the process of building a 427 side-oiler with an aftermarket block, heads, etc for the car. He then admitted that a mustang wasn't really his style. We have been searching for a 65-67 Galaxie for the past few months. He finally found an older restoration that's in really nice shape and bought it. The side-oiler will replace the 352 that's currently in that car.

    After the Nova debacle, I left a sizable amount of cash waiting for him. He finally caved! It's taken 15 years to get here.

    This doesn't mean I'm completely abandoning the E39. I have to finish paying the old man for the mustang. I do have an LS1 & T56 that needs a home. Highly contemplating making the E39 a stockish daily driver and pissing off some purists with the mustang because of a 6.0 and a turbo.

    Sounds like the best recipe for a fast, reliable Ford product to me...

    Exactly. I grew up bleeding blue. Funny how things change.

    Since the LS engines are far more like a SBF then the modulars, GM simply continued the development of the Windsor engine family for Ford....

    Purist be damned, build what you want and drive the $hit out of it!

    It is funny how you can set an LS head on a Windsor block. They damn near bolt on. The Valves are backwards, but we will call that an improvement to the original design.

    Canít believe itís been almost 2 months since Iíve had anything to say about the car! Truly have not had the time to do anything much to it. Had to finish up a house remodel.

    Anyway, the 67 fastback mustang I was buying from my dad (that I thought was on the 5 year plan) has been moved way up in terms of a timeline. He asked me what I wanted for a bday gift. I told him to credit me some of the $ I owe on the car. After some thought, he decided to forgive the debt completely and handed me the title. Pretty sure this ranks as the best birthday gift of all time. The mustang game has changed significantly since last had one in high school. Canít wait to start this project. He had collected an original 390, some 428 CJ heads, C4 Corvette front and rear suspension, etc. I probably wonít use most of that as I donít want to hack the car up that much. It will definitely get some modern suspension upgrades, not sure what just yet.
