In Car collecting terms, the COPO has been one of the most infamous
and popular collector cars on the market. Those who understood what
that meant were quick to scoop up all 69 of these made in 2017.
This particular one was ordered and built originally for the Tasca
Racing Family out of Rhode Island. They are a well known Ford
racing family and ordered this COPO because there's nothing quite
like it from the factory that offers a track only drag racing
package that now run's in NHRA factory stock classes! Here's your
chance to own a great collector car that was owned by a legendary
EXTERIOR: Finished in a two town Hyper Blue and Black. The car's
color is as beautiful as it is menacing. Down the split of the two
tone paint are giant vinyl graphics boasting the 350CI Supercharged
engine that's the heart of this car. The Lightweight hood has a
massive cowl with hood scoop allowing cool air to pass through with
ease. Not only does it make the front of the car look that much
more appealing it's also functional too. The Wheels are a two piece
style professional polished lightweight Weld wheel, and they are
wrapped in Track only Hoosier slicks and skinnys. In the rear of
the car is a brake assisted parachute system, and functional
INTERIOR: Inside the car has been stripped down for weight
reduction. It still has a normal looking dash and door cars however
there is no havoc or radio controls. Instead they are replaced with
toggle switches for the lights, battery, fuel, ignition and on
button. You still start the car with the start stop push Button.
There's an aftermarket tachometer on the right hand side of the
steering wheel. It also has a full NHRA spec roll cage updated to a
7.5 cage, lightweight racing bucket seats, Simpson racing harnesses
and safety net. Replacing the stock shifter is a Hurst racing style
3 speed with reverse lockout, next to that is a handle release for
the rear parachute.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Underneath the lightweight Cowl hood, is the
very appealing, very impressive Whipple Supercharged 350 CI V8
pushing 580HP on a light tune. A couple small changes to pulleys
and fuel and you'll be reaching a reliable 800+ HP if desired. The
engine is also accompanied by an aluminum catch can system, Fuel
pressure regulator, Long tube headers, aluminum radiator, and even
an Icetank for the Whipple intercooler to rapidly reduce the
temperatures after a hit down the track. The engine is mated to an
ATI Racing Products Th400 style 3 speed automatic transmission
complete with a tree master torque converter to safely handle all
the power this COPO can unleash.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Inside the trunk is completely bare metal to
keep the weight reduced, You'll find Dual batteries with a cutoff
button that sticks out the rear button. There's also the Fuel cell
with braided fuel lines. Mounted to the inner top of the trunk is a
Voltage gauge for your batteries. Everything is cleanly mounted to
the trunk floor and very clean.
UNDERSIDE: Underneath is spotless, it features lightweight
adjustable front coil overs, adjustable 4 link rear suspension,
solid rear axle with a spool, 40 spline axle shafts, manual
steering rack, lightweight 4 wheel disc brakes, 1 piece driveshaft,
long-tube headers with exhaust dumps replacing the mid pipes.
A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am
offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
