goodmorning ladies an gents, my grandfather is giving me a 1970 Ford Torino Cobra 2 door sports roof had the 429 engine in it. It’s currently just a rolling chasis. I plan on building it over the next few years and not going the traditional way with it. I’m sure I’ll get a lot of hate for it but I want to put a 1JZ-GTE engine in it and was just wondering if anyone has ever done it or attempted to do it. I planning on modernizing it putting in digital cluster, touch screen radio nice speakers some classic wheels made in to 18s. Any input is appreciated please no negative comments I understand it’s not the traditional build for one of these but I want to build it the way I want with no regards to resale or “restoring” it to its original condition.
