The 1962 Shelby CSX2000 was 4 in. shorter, 5 in. narrower and 200 lb. lighter than the first-generation Mazda Miata, yet, it has a 260-cu.-in. Ford V-8 stuffed under its aluminum hood.
A major attraction to the 1967 Ford Mustang Convertible is an enlarged engine compartment that will accept—if just barely—Ford’s big block V-8s.
