    Down in the weeds is the plan. Dark green, black roof. Loud pipes otherwise standard to keep costs as low as possable.

    A good mod to the '64 is to fit the disc brakes from the '65 - really helps the stopping power

    I drove a 64 once and was horrified how poor the brakes were !

    Also I fitted a front anti-roll bar to mine - absolutely transformed the handling to a point it almost can negotiate roundabouts at speed

    I had many engine/gearbox mods in mine but that will kill your budget by the sounds of it

    Good Luck with the project

    Sell the engine to finance an all AMC car - source a 390 or 401 lump, some ally heads and you'll have a unique car - AMC stuff back in early 70's were running rings around GM & Ford in their compact sedans - they just didn't have the budget to go far enough - some images of my '68 343 Javelin back in 1975ish!

Lower performance and later 427's didn't always have the 'cross bolts' and may have come with a single carb and hydraulic cam. I remember a metallic green/grey '62 TBird around some years ago have had 427 badges on the front fenders (although it wasn't) - I stand to be corrected but Ford never put a 427 in a Tbird as stock.
