Well I like to keep a stang out the wreck yard so this one will be fixed to stock and bolt-ons, gears... And will probably sale. There's not enough 5.0s here. I need help tho. Should I keep here 4 eyed or should I do the 87-93 lx conversion? I can get any at the local junk yard.

Gahhhh a 4 eye! Lol. I would convert it, but if you're trying to sell it after fixing it up then just restore it to stock. Looks like quite a project. Is the front end damage all it suffered from? How's the interior and top?

I would defiantly do the conversion , especially because you need a new nose any ways.

I'd stick with keeping it stock, just to be alittle different. But if your gonna be selling her, go with the popular vote and update the nose.
