I purchased this car in 1990 from the orig. owner , a Calif. car built at the San Jose plant , the car had 0 rust and 0 rust or damage repair. drove it a few miles then parked it in my shop. around 2000 the resto. began then was completed in 2010. The motor was built at M&R machine in Glendale(no longer open/retired) by Danny Grill . . The motor is a 351 Windsor /brodix heads/edelbrock/holley/jba headers/MSD etc.etc. .he claimed it to be around 425hp but we never dynoed it. . The trans is orig. ford toploader all rebuilt at Transaction by Brad Anderson. .. The rear end is the only unit not gone thru with 3.00:1 , i would suggest at least a 3.50 gear and locker to the new owner. all the rest was done by myself , the paint is orig. nightmist blue , guide coat/blocked several times and is laser straight , shelby body parts purchased from Branda ,. .. interior is correct ford # lacquer , interior fiberglass &doors are properly striped(not sanded) to retain orig. OEM grain . .. the glass front&rear is new with carlite year code stamp ,. .rubber throughout car is new ,. .. floors/trunk/door skins lined with sound deadening dynomat. The front brakes are power/disc with adj. proportion valve , they work awesome. ..the suspension all new , everything works / A/C /heater / lights etc.. the radio is orig am 8 track stereo thats wired to switch for siriusxm pod . . .the car runs great ,sounds great and is fast. i've put about 500 miles since finished. The theme of this car was to keep the orig. oem ford/shelby look without all the bolt on crud they sell ,. . now under the hood is another story , you cant hide power but thats the nice thing about a tribute car. I am retired and restore vintage motorcycles/cars as a hobby with a shop built off my house where the car was restored , the paint was done in a booth at a friends body shop . .... My experience from work began as a machinist to a mechanic to some time in a body shop , i've fabricated/built/painted oval track race cars and prepped/painted picture cars for the movie industry. I am happy to take any phone calls , or show the car to anyone in the area . DOUBLE CLICK PHOTOS BELOW . .. .. .. .. ...
