    Gould #15 project

    I had recently picked up an older Gould car #15. A friend of mine had it forever and was on the cover of Muscle Mustang Fast Ford magazine March 2002. He took really good care of it and he traded it to another mutual friend for an 03 GT that used to be mine. Well to make a long story short he stripped the car and I bought the shell. It had alot of really good parts still left on it and i threw it together with a bunch of junk I had laying around. Here is some pictures of when I first bought it.

    Once I got it home a threw a stock bottom end together with an E-303 cam and ported stock E7 heads. I also bought a bunch of the original parts from the car as well like the Victor 5.0 upper and lower, 75 mm TB, 80 mm MAF, 42 lb injectors, and MSD distributor. The suspension consists of Competition Engineering struts and shocks with Eibach drag springs. It has a complete Aeromotive fuel system, tubular k-member, aluminum driveshaft, and a stock rear with 3.73 gear.

    As soon as I got it together I took it to the local car show and got a trophy. Must say something about the paint which still looks beautiful! I drove it around for a while like that but it just wasnt as fast as it should be, so the other day I got with Mike Bell and bought his 347 out of the vert. I bought the 28 oz flywheel from Rich (thanks!) and went to Jegs and bought some new Comp Ultra Gold 1.6 rocker arms. I sat the motor in last night and Im working on getting things buttoned up today. Hopefully have it running tonight.

    28 oz flywheel on a stock bottom end 5.0 HO? Am I an idiot, or should I be confused?


    The car looks great in person- beautiful! Good luck with the build.

    You missed the part where he bought my 347, it's 28oz balance. Looks great Brian! Can't wait to see my engine back on the road pumping out some power.

    Thanks everyone! I got pretty much everything buttoned up today and Im so close to hearing it run. I still have to adjust the valves and set the timing. I bought the March alternator bracket at Jegs only to find out Ill have to get a new shorter belt.
    Also on a crappy note... I was in the garage with the door closed when the wife started yelling for me. She said there was something smoking in the basement so I hurried and raised the door and ran inside to find my sump pump had took a shit! I got that squared away and went back out to the garage and if you`ve seen my garage you know what Im about to say! With the hood open and me opening the garage door it smacked the hood and put 1 huge scratch about a foot long in the hood. My day has turned to crap! I need a bigger garage and now I also need the hood painted again! Ill post pictures of it tomorrow!

    I think it was just a way for me to get a different hood! Im wanting the H.O. Fibertrends extended cowl hood so its in the future now for sure! I`ll have it done in the next day or so. I mounted up the fan and overflow today but didnt have time to post up more pics.

    Thanks Bruce. Scott took pretty good care of it. Ive always loved the cars you guys have put out. By the way I talked to Bundy the other day with #14 and he asked how you`ve been and if youve done any other Mustangs.

    Well if your up for it you may be getting the hood to fix and paint. Its not real bad just an eye sore . Also Im looking for a Cobra rear bumper cover to get rid of the GT40 bumper thats on it and it has a few different colors on it as well
