'67 Mustang Coupe

Hey all. Over the years I have been doing work to my 67 Mustang. I recently acquired a 302 engine from a man who was trying to fit it into a BMW in Germany. I bought the engine and transmission for $450, sold the tranny for $450 and here I am with an Engine to play with.

First I'll post some pics of the car and what I have done to it so far..

I have redone the interior completely. I replaced a panel that had cancer (rust) and was hideous. Distributor, carb 600cfm, radiator, and a beautiful blue paint job. The Maaco paint job was honestly terrible, it started cracking only a couple months after and they put a dent in the trunk lid. They refused to fix it and claimed it was there before I was overseas at the time and couldn't dispute it. I believe that is all I have done so far. In the first comment I will add the after pictures.


The 302 engine.
The heads are 351s. Rockers are old cast pieces of crap. I have new E351 1.72 roller rockers I'm going to use. The block is from an 87 ford truck. Not sure what the headers are, but I'm not going to use them anyway. The intake is a gt40 intake. Pistons are sealed power hyper eutectics with teflon skirting. The Rods are C80E. I believe that is all the info I have as of now.
Most of my information is from google and just hands on, so I'm still learning.

My goal with the 302 is to get around 600hp area with a BDS blower kit to top it off.
Thanks for reading all. I will mainly post in this as I get more updates.

Pretty excited about this update. It's a very small one, but it means progress. I figured it would be a while before I made any progress. But, here we are.

My neighbor came through (great man, even better friend) and let me borrow some tools I didn't have. I was able to get the cam out and it looks purty. It's a e303 cam. Not to bad from what I found. I'll be keeping the 1.6 rockers on it to keep the ratio with the cam. I'm also painting the block/heads/intake a flat black color so no more weird yellow/blue combo. Here is the list of stuff I have bought so far:


Piston Ring Compression kit Piston Ring Compressor Set Cal Van 14400 | eBay

Full Gasket kit for the 302 Ford 289 302 1963 82 Windsor Full Gasket Set | eBay

A new flexplate because I have an auto tranny Scat SFI Ford Small Block 50oz 289 302 351W Flexplate 157 Tooth C4 SBF 5 0 Liter | eBay

Headers Ford SB 289 302 351 Windsor Block Huggers Stainless Steel Exhaust Headers | eBay

Headbolt bushing kit because whoever put the engine together did it wrong..
Ford SB 289 302 351 Windsor Head Bolt Bushing Kits 1 2 O D x 7 16 I D | eBay

In total I have spent $330.35. I bought the engine and tranny for $450 and sold the tranny for $450. Not a bad deal at all.

The timing chain worried me a bit, seeing as it has some slack.. It should be fine though.

They are meant for 302s why would they not fit? I have shorties on my 289 now so clearance shouldn't be an issue.

Agreed. I have learned more about these little 302s now. 600 is wayyy too much. I just haven't update this yet. Still learning, but got the gist of it all.

My dad had a '66 with the base 289, not the hi-perf, but he always missed it and regretted selling it. With so many sold, I'm amazed at how hard it is to find an un-crashed one, that isn't rusted through, and is still a roller, for under $5k!

They're selling pretty high over here in California. About $10-11,000
