I agree with Neil with the cost to make this one into a Neil built (non-concours) GT/CS.

Neil style, restored GT/CS's, are the preferred alternative to concours. Just me speaking, no flaming. I like his tasteful upgrades that allow the car to be daily driven and shown. Reliability with day two modifications.
Eagle eyes.. What are the distinguishing visual differences on the small block that you can see. It's been over 28yrs since I've had my early mustang.

I'm with Neil style. Cars are meant to be driven and enjoyed!

Yes, 4 bolt crank pulley is 1970 and later. Also valve covers are newer style design.
