I just bought a '76 Cougar street stock. It had 2 races on it when the guys motor blew and he didn't want to continue this year. I bought it less motor and trans. I am getting a 351 Windsor for it in a couple of days though. Could you give me a sequence of steps to go through to A)check it over, and B)get it ready?

Mainly the car. As far as order of process to get it race ready for you. As far as the motor goes, I think I'm ok on that. My crew chief is a brainiac on engines, so I think I'm good there. Thanx!
