    What to put it in ???

    Picked this oddity up the other week
    Its an alloy headed supercharged intercooled 3.8 V6 from a1989 FORD THUNDERBIRD
    Gearbox is a Mazda M5R2 and has a sbf bell pattern

    It looks as though it may have been an oem replacement or rebuilt then sat under a bench as it looks like its never been started


    So im looking for something odd to fit it in (no escorts, cortinas, too common)
    Its not a powerful thing with just 180kw and 445nm so small and light is the key BUT it must engineerable lol

    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    There is a dude local to me that has been trying to sell a T bucket looking thing for about 5 years atleast. No one wants it coz it's buickmoo powered.

    The ford v6 would slot into it nicely..
