Calypso Coral exterior, Brown leather interior. 598ci Big Block Ford V8, 6 speed manual transmission. Jon Kaase engine, No expense spared, $200k plus invested. This is the Mustang dreams are made of. This highly modified 1969 Mustang started life as a 351 car and remained parked inside for 30+ years before the complete tear down two years ago. Every piece of this car has been touched and every nut and bolt has been replaced. Starting with the Calypso Orange paint that was available from Ford for the year, the body is straight as an arrow and was taken down to bare metal before paint. The interior has been finished in quality brown leather with all new seats, carpet, headliner, and dash. Dakota Digital gauges fill the dash and keep you informed with style. Underneath this Mustang is just as clean as on top. The front suspension consists of a Heidts unit that includes beefy Wilwood disc brakes, coilover shocks, tubular upper and lower control arms, and rack and pinion steering. The rear also uses a Heidts independent rear suspension unit that has inboard Wilwood disc brakes and coilover shocks. All this makes this car handle unlike any other vintage car around. Rolling stock includes a set of 20" US Mag forged wheels front and rear with 315mm wide rear Continental tires. The engine is built to have great street manners while still retaining a race background. All specs and parts were acquired by long time professional engine builder Jon Kaase. Assembly was done by Brian Maloof of Maloof Racing in Carnesville, Ga. The engine started life as a new 429ci big block Ford and then was machine to 598ci with an estimated 950hp. The transmission is the most popular Tremec T56 6 speed manual with a high rated clutch and pressure plate. The exhaust itself is a pure work of art. The car was taken to Kooks Headers and Exhaust in North Carolina. Everything was done in-house and is completely custom from headers to tail pipes. Some other parts consist of a new steering column, oversized aluminum radiator, interior nut and bolt sets, weather stripping and rubbers, re-chromed or replaced chrome trim and bumpers, windshield, and much more. This build is only 2 years old and has only been driven a handful of times. The owner has over $200,000 invested so his lost is your gain. If you are looking for a street machine that can win races or car shows, this is your car. Come out to see this beauty in person today!
