I really hate to part with this car, but age and health force me to find a new owner. I purchased this car in 1973 in Fairfield , CA while in the Air Force. Originally it was a "C" Code 4 SPD white exterior and red interior. Over the years I have changed everything to what would have been a "W" Code car plus a whole lot more. The entire drivetrain is new with less than 3000 miles.
I purchased a new Genesis cast iron short block professionally prepared from a FE guru in CA. It included a SCAT cast crank, SCAT "H" beam rods and Diamond pistons, balanced and assembled with original 427 balancer and steel flywheel. 4.250 bore and 4.125 stroke. He also supplied a Canton 8 quart road race pan, complete roller rocker setup, top of the line timing chain and gears, performance oil pump and drive rod and a 427 C8 timing chain cover and pointer.
To complete the short block, a solid roller Comp Cam, bronze distributor drive gear, Holley performance fuel pump, Edelbrock aluminum water pump and a aftermarket dip stick and tube were installed. Next is the upper end. Keith Craft supplied a set of Stage 2 Edelbrock heads which I had powder coated . ARP head studs were used instead of bolts. The intake is a Blue Thunder 2 X 4 aluminum Medium Riser which is also powder coated. The carbs are Holley new reissue of the BC/BD which I was lucky to find. Original type progressive linkage and fuel log is used. The valve covers are 427 Cobra aluminum also powder coated. A set of Hooker ceramic coated headers and Magna Flow 3" stainless steel exhaust system exiting at the rear bumper were used. A gear reduction starter turns it over effortlessly.
The rest of the drivetrain is as follows: 11 1/2" performance clutch and diaphram pressure plate (for ease of pedal) with roller bearing pilot. Lakewood scatter shield with driveshaft safety loop. The transmission is a new David Kee long tailshaft toploader 1 3/8" input/output with a wide ratio gear set. Hurst Comp Plus shifter for use with factory console. A custom driveshaft had to be made for the extra length transmission. The rear end is a 9" unit from a '68 Mustang with a new David Kee 350 Traction-Loc 31 spline. There are also Comp Engineering sub frame connectors and ladder bars to hold everything in place.
There has been so much done to the car over the years that it is hard to remember everything. Bear with me as I try to fill you in starting at the front bumper. First there is a front spoiler with a small chip on the right front. It has a big block 3 core radiator with a manual 12" electric fan, shroud and flex fan. Chrome 1G alternator, Mallory electronic distributor, Accel coil and spark box with adjustable rev limiter. Shaved shock towers with all wiring running through them. As you will notice from the pictures, I have kept all wiring and heater hoses off the intake where possible. Front suspension has big block springs and lowered upper control arms to Shelby specs. Braking system has stock type front discs and 10" X 2" rear drums using Mustang 2 manual disc master cylinder. Works pretty good as there is no room for a booster and I prefer manual brakes. The batteries are mounted in the truck with #1 welding cable running to the solenoid. Also added sequential LED turn signals.
The interior has Autometer oil pressure, vacuum and water temperature gauges mounted in dash replacing the original Ford gauges. There is a 1967 console and 1969 Mach 1 seats in front. Carpet, headliner and door panels are in good condition. The inside of the truck has a carpet kit installed and the spare is a matching chrome wheel with collapsible spare tire which provides much needed room in the trunk. Battery disconnect switch is located in the trunk.
Exterior paint is Diamont base coat/clear coat in Medium Concord Blue Metallic. The white "C" stripes are painted on not the original sticker type. Overall the paint job is in good condition with a few chips here and there. I have received many comments from folks at the car shows about the color and paint job especially the ladies. There is also a trunk lid mounted luggage rack to go with the sleeper look. Unfortunately I had to add the oversized Boss 9 hood scoop because the K&N 2" tall filter could not supply enough air for 1430 CFM worth of carbs. Gets plenty of air now.
I'm sure there will be plenty of questions and I will respond ASAP. While the auction is running, the car will be available for inspection at my residence. Because I am getting out of the classic Mustang and FE engines, there will be bonus parts thrown in with the sale of the vehicle. I will not list them because I have to go through my inventory to see exactly what I do have. But I would advise bringing a truck.
The only other issue other than cosmetics is the right rear floor pan which has developed some rust. Seems someone spilled a drink back there and neglected to inform me of it. This is a inexpensive item at all Mustang parts vendors. Just letting you know the negatives in with the positives. I feel I have a very unique vehicle and have spent loads of money and time in this. My reserve is far less that the 100K+ altered Mustangs from a movie theme.
Payment will be either cash, personal check or bank draft which will be held until cleared. I will not entertain trades. I will assist the buyer in locating a transportation service if needed. Good luck and take care of my baby please.
