Greetings! Just picked up my 1980 4cyl 4spd sedan on Saturday. Was a hairy drive home due to a tire separation, but otherwise an enjoyable drive. Got it from a kid who bought it from the original owner to practice bodywork and paint. He did a decent job of straightening the body and painting for his first time. The old 4cyl runs as well as I could have hoped and will be fine to drive for the time being. I'm about to strip and part out my 88 Mustang GT and begin the conversion on the 'Mont to 306efi with 5spd and the 3.73 8.8 out of the Stang. Looking forward to leaving some folks scratching their heads.

Sounds cool! I've done pretty much the same thing, so ask away as questions arise. Except my motor is stock '90.
