A Windsor would be a cheap and easy swap for power. That sbf you have there will probably be fun. You could go for a modular... I think a 302 is the best. Simple wiring too if you go EFI. Ask around on The Corral. You may want EFI for those cold winters up there. With an aluminum headed 302, I think you can get around 23mpg highway in the newer, heavier mustangs. In the fox bodies, they can get around 27mpg from what I hear.

And get an AOD if going auto for a DD. OD will be nice to have...

I have an extra 302 harness and distributor laying around if you needed. I'm not sure what vehicle the harness is from though, it's not from a Mustang.

Yeah my friend wants $3,000 for that engine pictured i can pick it up tomorrow. that would be sweet and a head turner. But the cheap side of me wants to grab a 302 outta an old F-150 at a junkyard.....
