P.s i was also interested in the old escorts if they would be better......
Common conversion was a windsor , I would think a 351 injected crate donk woul be a goer , either way you will have to fabricate lots of things as the std v6 was quite a narrow v ,the windsor will with the righ suspension mods push the car to over 140 mph with ease .
Good Luck ( and remember it needs better brakes)
