I grew up racing karts at age 12 and winged dirt sprint cars at 14.
After having success with race cars we bought a mustang from Texas. I have been building this car for over 5 years. After driving it for a day I tore it down to change a leaky oil pan gasket which turned into a complete teardown. All but the exterior has been sandblasted then restored, improved, or upgraded starting with the fabrication and intall of the mustang II tubular front suspension from Rod & Custom.
So the car's full undercarriage, interior, trunk and engine compartment were blasted then worked in my little fab shop and repainted. The fenders nose and doors were obviously removed but have not had any body work.
Next was the fab and install work for the tubular, fully adjustable, pushrod style rear coilover suspension from Unique Performance originally designed by Total Control Products that utilizes a Watts Link and a torque arm.
Same story for the subframes which are part weld on and part bolt on.
The engine was built by a friend who started out building street and drag race motors, then Sprint Cup series stuff with Chip Ganassi's NASCAR team, and now road race motors for the TransAm series.
Its a 302 c.i. SBF bored 0.040" over with real light pistons, huge hand ported heads (aluminum heads are on the way), and real nasty cam shaft.
I run the Victor JR intake manifold and a large Barry Grant Demon race carb. An MSD Ignition system with engine accessories from Jones Racing Products.
5 speed TKO-600 transmission from Tremec with road race gears.
The rear end is a Ford 9" with 4.11 gears and a detroit locker.
I've bolted in a Fuel Safe racing fuel cell with a bladder and fabricated aluminum case.
I use a real wood Grant wheel and authentic Carroll Shelby Signature Series Auto-Meter gauges and seats.
I welded in the cage and tubbed the rear to fit 11" rear wheels. I was able to fabricate and modify some stuff to retain the factory interior panels after the wheel tub work. I used to work as a fab guy for a Craftsman Truck team.
I have blacked out the tail light panel with a light weight aluminum panel found on the deluxe exterior package back in the late sixties. There are also LED tail lights.
Here I put the car on the scales and setup the suspension including the toe, caster/camber, ride heights and rake, cross weight, alignment, etc...
I hope you have enjoyed looking, cuz i love checking out everyones rides here on CarDomain.
I gotta thank the folks that have helped me including all my buddies. George, Kris, Dru, Andrew, Scott, my engine builder Mike, Brandon, Alan, Kevin, Rickert and the guys from Chop Shop.
