It's an FE engine, which is all you can say from looking at one. Chances are it's a 390, but you can't tell from looking at it. It does seem to be a good price for a relatively complete and restorable car. Fastbacks bring more $$$, but FE coupes are cool IMO. I had a '68 FE couple once. Get it.

I thought in your post update here we'd see that you had bought it.
Given the circumstances of the car, I think $7500 is more than fair
for your reacquisition price.

Yes that looks very solid. The quarter panels look very good, might be a small dent on driver qtr and that chunk of bondo on the door could be the worst of it. You most likely will not need much metal work. I agree with the others, I would definitely get it at that price.

Exactly my point. 390 coupes weren't exactly growing on trees
even back in the day. I actually saw more fastbacks.......

Congrats! "Page 1" of the journey, is now over. Just get ready for the rest of the pages as they come. You can always listen to Bob Seger's "Turn the Page" as you progress! Remember, it's a long, but fun, page at a time!

Glad you've got it Now you can proceed at a pace that works for you.
Don't get discouraged by the challenges that come up, just know that (a) they will, and (b) nothing is unsolvable. Especially after a frustration break, followed by a brewski or two and a chance to have a second look at things when needed. Gonna be a nice looking car when done!

[/SIGPIC]67 Fastback GT -- original colour (Frost Turquoise), orig engine. Pic is of me and the Mustang taken in May of '67, with original F70-14 Wide Ovals. Same car is now restored to "as new" but 3 speed tranny swapped out for 4 speed back in the mid '80's, with tach dash, original Equalock rear, Koni's, Opentracker UCA, LCA, roller perches and idler arm, roller bearing pedal cluster, Cibie headlights, 4100 carb (old 4300 put in storage probably forever)
