67Cougar 4.6 dohc restomod

Allright, here goes. First of all, I want to say what a great resource the VMF is, and seems to be a really fun community that I'm glad to be a part of. I have learned a lot reading through old threads, etc. Thanks in advance to all of the help and support!



I had a '67 Cougar XR7 in college, 289ci, 2bbl, C4. I got married, had kids, sold the Cougar and drove a '88 Nissan Sentra. Fast forward 25'ish years and bought a '67 Cougar base 390 locally. A family friend bought a place 10 min away with a 25' x 40' barn and was kind enough to share. We bought a big compressor and some toolboxes, ran air lines, and 2.5 yr later I am making progress.


I'll start with some pics of when I got it.

I love the Old Cats. All the work for the SOHC small displacement engine that is so wide is more than I would wanna do when I could build and hide a wicked stroker between those sexy towers. Always wanted a black 67 or 68... Have fun ! !

I was excited when I first saw it that the floor panels had been replaced. Not so much.

I bought a Hobart 140 on the recommendation of a friend at work and went to work. I started on the rear floor, then the fronts, and added the torque box on the RH side. Installed the NPD 'vert style seat pan, which may be a PITA later.

The cowl was in rough shape. I didn't want to completely disconnect the structure, so I used the patch panels each side one at a time.

Yeah, just wanted something different. My original plan was a coyote, but I happened upon a '98 SVT Cobra DOHC 4.6 that has really low miles, came with a T45 5-spd, all for about 1/4 price of new coyote & controller.


We'll see how it goes; I can always add to it.

Just like with installing a Coyote, you will need to eliminate the shock towers. I put a 4.6L DOHC into a Factory Five Cobra replica. It just barely fit, but I loved the way that engine reved. Look carefully at the available Coyote swap components, see if you can find one that will accept the larger Mustang Cobra brakes. The beauty of the Factory Five was that the kit was designed to use most of the drivetrain components.

Hopefully you got the computer, harness, tank, and other electronic modules with it. Having all the parts from one donor will make the installation much easier. That said, you will still need a programmer to remove the PATS.

Another resource for transplanting the 4.6 is the FFcars.com forum. Many people used these engines before the Coyote became available.

9" rear rebuild, kept 28 spline axles, tru-trac with 3.73 gears. My first rear end setup, was pretty cool. I watched some you-tube & bought a book, it went better than I thought. I guess I'll find out how well it really went once it's moving under it's own power.

yes, thanks! planning on Ron Francis wiring harness & engine harness, plus they can do the PATS delete, post-cat O2 sensor delete, I think. I did not get the computer, but I have seen several available & I think I know the numbers that I need.
