This one was a full blown rotisserie restoration. It was built as a weekend poker run car. It has all the looks of a killer race car but really is a drivable sunny day cruiser. The body & paint was done on top, bottom & inside for a very impressive build.
This Fastback has been stored in doors and sunny day driven since completion. The paint & body look great and would be comfortable at your weekend shows & cruises. The hood is a high quality unit with a fiberglass upper and steel frame. This one was built for the summer and as such it the cold & rainy day components were not used. The rear window is a GT350R reproduction with an open top for ventilation. The heater, wiper & door glass were deleted. Each could be installed but were not retained with the car. All components are easily available though.
Inside the interior looks great. With the addition of the Shelby GT350 R package tray, which has rear seat delete and spare tire mount, custom racing seats, custom roll bar and a Rally Pack this is a very fun & purposeful interior. If needed you also have window nets should you wish to contain any nervous passengers ;).
Under the hood lives a 302 that has been upgraded with TFS Aluminum Cylinder Heads, Edelbrock Victor Jr Intake Manifold, Edelbrock Carburetor, Performance Ignition and Ceramic Coated Tri-Y Headers. This motor was built for the open road and cruising so it has a mild camshaft and produces about 375 horsepower. It could easily make more with a larger cam & carburetor. The C4 was rebuilt with a mild shift kit. The rear end is a custom heavy duty 9" assembly that has been narrowed to fit. The carrier is a Nodular unit with 3.89 gearing which works perfectly with the roll out of the rear tires.
The chassis was modified for those HUGE 325 Mickey Thompson tires. The frame rails were moved inboard about 2" allowing for these behemoths. For added strength convertible seat boxes were added. During the restoration the floor pan was replaced with a 1 piece unit.
The braking system was upgraded to 4 Wheel Power Disc, a HUGE upgrade from the stock drum brakes.
