Bad thing is that it looks to have started as a real XR7.

Sorry, I just don't believe any naturally-aspirated 302 is good for "550-600hp" even with tunnel rams.....that's just my opinion.

Oh wait, it's been bored to 306. I stand corrected.

Delete my account.

Also....I didn't see the tell-tale vertical drop in the rear window. Is he SURE that's an XR7?

Yeah the drop is just hard to see being black in a dark location but go open your T-birds trunk and look at the opening, and compare it to the cougar in the picture.
