  1. Thinking of selling the 5.0. It's rarely driven anymore and I now need the space that it occupies in the garage. Located in Bethesda, Md. Priced to sell...

    This is a 1990 740 that I installed a '93 Ford Mustang 5.0 in, using the Converse Engineering kit. Converse is best known for the supercharged 960 that he built for Paul Newman years ago. It was a very complete kit that included everything needed for the swap. No fabrication was needed on my part and it was a very straightforward project. I've been wrenching for 35 years (25 on Volvo) and am very particular with the work I do.

    Completed the project in 2003 and used the car as my DD for years until I picked up the S70 I'm driving now. Since then the car has been taking up space in the garage and been driven only occasionally. The motor was rebuilt before it went in the car and it has a few performance parts on it. Wanted it to be a reliable DD, so I didn't do much performance-wise. Small list of options include an Edelbrock Performer aluminum heads and intake manifold, Ford Motorsports headers, larger injectors, larger mass meter and t-body, and roller rockers. Engine has less than 35k miles on it. Trans is a Ford AOD automatic with a shift kit installed.

    Car was completely painted original color in 2006 and has been garage kept since. I removed everything (bumpers, lights, door handles, etc.) before painting and the job came out great. New bumpers were installed then also, since the original ones had faded badly. Interior is clean but nothing special. Probably much better than most cars of that year, but it does have wear on it. It does have power seats that I installed from a 760. Car is very complete and everything works, including the A/C. I've always driven this car with a dealer tag so there is no catalytic converter installed, although I do have a front muffler installed in that location. It could easily be removed to put in an aftermarket performance cat. Thanks for looking! 

    This is from earlier today...

    where the heck is that with all them volvos outdoors on lifts!

    My shop in Maryland. Cars on top are mostly junkers/parts cars, and cars underneath are customers cars. Space in Bethesda is limited, that's why the car stackers. Oh yeah, and the stackers are on the roof of our shop.

    That yellow was just for sale for like $7900. I recognize the fake hood vent and how multiple parts on the car have been repainted.

    It definitely has been well kept, just needs to correct a few things in my opinion.

    The car is fairly clean. Definitely not worth what he paid for it.

    Intake and charge pipe are now on the car. I was told to get a 45 & 90 coupler for the new mini Snabb intake pipe. However I would contest that two 90* sections are the way to go as I was forced to leave the filter straight and not include my intake box (say what you will I like it)

    I like that look also! Could always use the Jag CAI. I used a smaller battery, but turning the battery sideways works too...
