I have not built anything 4x4 since the early eighties when monster trucks were all the rage, must have built 20 or more! So while looking over the selection at HL I came across this Bronco, what the hey, it's time to go off road. Just not stock!! Here is a mock-up of where I want to go, looks like I'll need a small body lift kit, maybe some blocks under the suspension.

And NO small block!!!

Stay tuned.

I got this far on the kit engine when I decided it was not going to work for me..

So I  dug around and came up with a 427 from a T-bolt, all it needed was a rear sump oil pan, so I made one. still a little rough but getting there,

I'll be putting this one to the rear of the build order, I want to finish my 34, and it's that time of year when model building times gets hit pretty hard, next years firewood to cut, and another million chores to do before winter.
