Brief history:
We purchased this truck
from a nice gentleman
in the Monroe, NC area.
The truck is a 390 c.i.
with Auto Trans, Power
Steering, and Power
Brakes with disc brakes
conversion.

The engine bay was
cleaned and sanded. A
fresh coat of black
enamel was applied. It
has a coating of pollen
on it already from sitting
outside the shop which
we'll clean up when it
comes back inside.

The original 390 was
removed to freshen it
up. The engine was
cleaned and painted.
All new gaskets were
installed from Mr.
Gasket. Ford Racing
chromed valve covers
were installed. Engine
was then re-installed
into the truck.
