Picking up my first Conquest this Sunday, no motor or tranny, non-SHP, and needs some work. Good news, however, is that it was $600! Been wanting one of these things since I was 12 (currently 17.)

Anyways, I bought it with the intention of a 302/t-5 swap and am considering doing a build series on YouTube covering everything I do. Would anyone be interested? Videos will probably be fairly short and be posted every week or two depending on how much I get to work on it. (By the way, I'm not a random teenager who doesn't know anything about cars. Own a family garage with my dad and have been basically raised a mechanic. I can do bodywork, paint, engine building, fab work, etc.)
At the very least, I'll be posting pictures on all of my car's Instagram account @grabberblue69

Motor already lined up (roller) - definitely going to be carbed for now however a nice fitech hopefully after Christmas!

I'll be watching. I also have a roller with empty engine bay. I was thinking maybe a 351 with a FItech & turbo. 351 since the blocks are stronger. Although I do have on hand a Ford 400 & closed chambered Australian heads with all the hi po parts to build it out.
I'd at least consider blocking the 'Comments' on youtube. They can be brutal. Stupid & very ingorant, but brutal .

Do the vids!

First video up! Just showing the new car so the progression can be seen. Sorry for being so skiddish, not used to this whole talking to a camera deal. Since the video I've further put together the interior and a few other odds and ends. It's by no means a perfect car, but I have a feeling a nice coat of paint will make this car look a million times better. (Also... not digging the flat black wheels., might polish them this week.) I'll be doing some interior restoration, buying new seats for it, etc etc.

Here's the video link: https://youtu.be/f4CgawAUNs8

I'll stop posting in this thread from here on out. No need, anyone interested can click on my YT channel or the first video and get to my channel from there.
