I can't really tell from the pic if the studs are shouldered or not. I did some digging, and Tom Monroe (Rebuilding Small Block Fords) also claims that the shouldered rocker studs started mid-1968,...

Barnett, I'm fairly sure shouldered rocker studs didn't start until '68. My factory '67 heads definitely had adjustable rockers.

I thought the '65-66 heads had slotted pushrod holes, while '67+...

Yes...that said, if you're going to use the EFI from the donor, I'd strongly recommend looking for an 89-93 donor vehicle. 94-95 Mustangs are...different. The block is the same, but things like...

Never said it should be crushed. I just don't like it when people pretend they have/are something they don't/aren't. Also, there's a difference between a well done shelby or cobra clone and putting...

Barnett, that's not always true. The bushing cups on my old factory shifter were toast. The tops were mashed slightly flat, and they were mushroomed out and jammed in the shifter housing. I've...

Most cars run fine without the hot air choke. As long as your carburetor choke is adjusted properly, you should be ok.

Depends on how original you want it to look/function.

Option 1) Eliminate any smog provisions and call it a day.
This will probably be the least-expensive option. You'll need a new open-filament...
