1990 Ford Mustang GT
Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as a 1964�
Mustang. Starting from serial No. #001 - the car inadvertently sold
to Stanley Tucker - all the cars produced had 1965 VIN codes. There
is a gap of 80,000 to 100,000 in the 1965 VINs around June-July
1964 that coincides with the switch from a generator on the engines
to an alternator. The gap is considered by many Mustang aficionados
to be the dividing line between '64� and '65 models.
For consignment, a special interest category car, more at home on
the track and definitely looking the part thanks to a roll cage,
mini tubs for the rear wheels and a fabricated rear wing. But
before you ask, yes the car is street legal, however it is set up
to not only imitate the look of a full blown race car, but it
actually performs like one too. With a built engine with speed and
power upgrades a plenty, this car is now a pocket rocket Foxbody
Stang, with a sting. A Bennett built 331ci stroker Ford engine now
graces the bay, along with an aluminum Kirby racing seat, and
Centerline wheels with MT drag tires front and rear. Street lethal
if you will.
This specialized hatchback is painted in menacing black and has
straight steel panels which mind their gaps. Body matching
integrated Cobra style front bumper, side skirts which emulate
brake cooling ducts, lightly tinted windows with black surrounds,
and some rectangular headlights, are framed by an all business lift
off extended cowl induction hood with dzus fasteners to secure it.
Up top the factory sunroof has been painted over with black paint
but can still be functional if need be. Gone are the cheese grater
style taillights and now cleaner wraparound taillights courtesy of
a Mustang LX are just below the rear trunk deck and aluminum
spoiler, and above another body matching Cobra style rear bumper.
Centerline racing wheels are on all 4 corners, and up front wrapped
by skinny 26x4.0x15 tires, and one the rear 28x10.5x15 rear drag
rubber. Save for the drag wheels and tires, and the cowl induction
hood, this is a naturally occurring unassuming Fox Bodied Mustang
GT with some Cobra dress up. BUT!
Framed with a 12-point roll cage, a Kirkey carbon aluminum racing
seat covered with black cloth with 5-point belts, and a litany of
important monitoring gauges display tucked neatly under the long
high cowl hood, and level indicators, all for the straight line.
Black steel is all that is visible in areas where seats once were
but now just weight loss for this super 'Stang. The steering wheel
airbag is still there along with a transbrake button, and a
tachometer and switch panel has been added to the roll cage. A
Hurst shifter sits directly in front of the dash and within the
gutted factory black console. The dash, while removed of all
unnecessary items, still retains the original gauge cluster and the
black vinyl and cloth door panels have remained with their padded
armrests and power window/lock rocker switch inserts. All buttoned
up and ready to go racing!
The 331ci V8 engine has all the fixings and has been meticulously
built by Bennett Racing engines as per our consignor and makes a
tire melting estimated 750hp. This block is adorned with Yates race
heads and has been fitted with pistons to create an approximate
14-1 compression ratio. A Hogan's custom fabricated highly polished
tunnel ram intake manifold is outfitted with 2 Holley 4bbl
carburetors to keep the mill drinking a healthy supply of 116
octane race fuel. We also note the car and engine have been plumbed
and wired for a 300hp shot of nitrous oxide but the car has never
been raced on the track or the street. Bolted to the mill is a
2-speed Powerglide automatic transmission with a 5000rpm stall
converter and a transbrake. Out back is a spooled Ford 9-inch rear
end assembly outfitted with Mark Williams axles. Sheesh! I'm
sweating with anticipation on the test track, which will be a
straight-line version today!
A ladder bar fully adjustable rear suspension with coil over rear
shock and spring conversion helps keep all that power hooked to the
pavement. Up front is an independent coil over suspension with
tubular control arms and a tubular K member. We note through the
floor subframe connectors have been installed to keep the chassis
extra rigid and the engine is mounted to the chassis with a front
motor plate. Wilwood disc brakes are on all 4 corners to bring this
horse to a whoah and Kooks custom headers are on for the exhale
with stainless steel race mufflers that end midship under the car.
All solid with only some minor paint chip off but no rust is
It fired up with a thunderous roar, and our test driver who doubles
as my sidekick decoder took her for a spin, and spin it did,
especially for the rear tires. He said launching was awesome, and
of course did not get close to any top speed, but it is reported it
goes like hell. All lighting is still functional as are the power
windows and locks.
Take a Fox body and spend a small fortune on it to make it go
straight, and you now have a super 'Stang, a Muscle Mustang, and a
powerful pony. No stone left unturned on this one, an excellent
build with super quality parts, and all for 1 purpose to smoke the
competition on the straight line. Mission accomplished...this
description will self-destruct in 10 seconds!
