Have a 1970 Torino 8' Fastback with 1973 Lincoln 460 Engine. Just getting into the car, first ever project car. A majority of car has been revamped for track racing. Still street legal. The previous owner passed away and his brother sold the car as part of estate sale. NO documentation for work performed. Electrical nightmare with switches going to I dont know what! LOL

I am looking for some parts and will be looking to this forum for advice for my novice a$$. I am mechanically inclined, a plus... but without documentation on this beast - I need help LOL!

I'll post some pictures once I figure out how! Shocked

Welcome Greg! Sounds like a pretty cool Torino! I have upgraded you to a full member so you can post photos now.

Here are the instructions on how to do so:

Like Vince mentioned, sounds like a great project to play with. Wiring nightmares are decidedly uncool, but you'll know every square inch of the car when your done, so look at the bright side! We love pictures here, and these guys are top notch about answering seemingly unanswerable questions - a real wealth of knowledge here! Good luck and maybe start a project page so we can follow along as you get her going.
