Hello all,
my name is aaron. I live down in Winlock, wa with my wife and 2 kids(lab pups)...I am follwing in dads footsteps (kind of) he got really big into torinos and then ran across a few of the 70.5 falcons....this will be my first "real" car....lol....I had imports in high school and the moved to jeeps....
My dad gave me this car a few months back....1970.5 Falcon.....He has one and my little sister has one....My dad uses his as a race car and cruiser, 351C.....sister's is a driver, and her little show car, 302...Mine is the only one in the family that started life as a v8 car...when I got it the motor was missing, and we finally decided to take my moms left over parts from her torino build and put them into a block I have laying around.....

thank you..........My original plan was 351 then maybe stroke to 408....I picked up a small blcok c6 9" rear end...when I went to pick up the 351 and 460 the 351 ended up a 302...........
THe my mom stated rebuilding her 429(after 6k miles).....and offered up all her old parts to me...So I am going that route.....as long as I don't have to hurt the car(I want the option to go back to stock some day
