Default 1971 Torino 500 2 door hardtop

Im building a 1971 Ford Torino 500 hardtop. It has a 302 2v Autolite 2100 carb completely stock engine with a C4 and a 9inch rear. I also have stock Iron cleveland 4v heads and the matching Iron 4v intake and just need a block. Im trying to decide to either run T/SA or U/SA with the 302 2V or G/SA or F/SA with the 351C I just need a block and a Holley 0-3310C or I could just build a footbrake bracket car. Im not really shur what direction I wanna go or what would make the most sense? I also have a Jim Paquet C4 4800 stall converter.

Isn't that like the Starsky and Hutch car? Put a red stripe on it and make it the reverse paint job. Was the Torino available with the 429? Godd luck in what ever way you decide to go.

The Starsky and Hutch is the next generation Torino. It was a Gran Torino and that generation had a full frame as opposed to this car being an unibody.

Yup, but I don't know if he wants too..You might find out soon.
HP too high on the 302.. Should run under, but not a lot , without opening the wallet wide.

So i looked in the guide. Is the 429 not considered a good combo at 350hp? Lots of compression big bore short stroke .500 lift cam.

Theirs was 76 model. Different body style. My mother bought one withe the 351 2V. she would let me borrow it, to go to Irwindale and OCIR. it was a gutless wonder.
