I've owned and worked on Ford cars and trucks since 1980, now do you want to rethink that? My first car was a 1970 Ford Country Squire, then a '78 full size Ranger F-150, '86 Mustang GT convertible (1- one of 4 of it's combo sent to the NE and 2- worked to over 300HP), '88 Eddie Bauer Bronco (worked to 275HP and little known fact that the 5.0L was the HO GT motor in the Eddie Bauer not the EFI), and my 01 SES, not counting the bull lowest clock on any of the other ones was 1.2 Million miles, so yeah I know exactly what I'm talking about.
My first.

Is that still your daily driver car with original engine or retired and kept to be restored?

It was sold and I bought '50 Ford.
Daily driver '03 Sable wagon. Also in my herd, '03 Taurus SEL, and '05 Taurus SEL. Along with my '11 Buick Lucerne, that makes 4 and 5 drivers. I maintain them all.

So you have not gone through the change of the engine control systems since the '70s and '80s to today (EEC 1 through 4 and the OBD I & II systems) you have only the OBD II system in those cars, and I'm sure that the '50, if not being restored, only comes out on weekends, it's what I would do.
