If I may suggest, you should consider looking for a 351W EFI? when I had my old one in an extended cab it was getting like 18mpg.

Christmas 2008 he bought a running EB that we will use for the 302 and body and misc parts. Here are some pics and a video of his first time driving an early bronco last week.

I should add that we now have bought 3 broncos for this project and parted them out. He sold his Quad this fall to pay for this recent purchase.

Sold This:



For This:



Also came with two sets of doors, full and half hardtop, D44 front, 9" rear, clean running 302, Power Steering, Power Brakes, 3 dashes, spare driveshafts, and all sorts of misc. parts. Pretty good use of his resources (of course with some of my influence).

Very nice. Any advice from the child's point of view on how to optimize the experience in terms of personal reward?

The personal reward will come when its drivable and getting it dirty for the first time.
