    So ive been collecting parts for a future av8 build for a while now. My buddy laughed at me for putting a early ford parts wanted ad on craigslist. I got a call from a guy the other day and he said he had what i was looking for. So i made the hour and a half drive and made a deal on some cool parts

    Nice stuff. The axle drop looks really smooth, I wonder when it was done. The 35/36 rear end came with the pile, too?

    lots of nice items
