Want one of the ultra rare Ford Mustang A/FX drag cars, but you
don't have a few hundred thousand dollar laying around? How about
an exceptionally well-built tribute that gets the details correct
right down to the performance-built V8, and even throws some great
Shelby pieces into the mix. But this one won't give your wallet a
You know this coupe was built for some professional fun the moment it came into view. Sure, a Nightmist Blue '66 Mustang is a pretty sight to see, but on this one, there's so much more for your eyes to enjoy. Ford had a handful of A/FX drag racers specially-built for members of this "Drag Council," and the person who built this followed Ford's template when making this tribute coupe. Up front you have the cool thunderbolt lift-off hood, plastic GT350R-style lower valance, and a huge lip spoiler. The sides continue this aggressive appearance with the GT350 stripe package, Shelby-style side scoops, and larger fender openings to accommodate the Weld wheels and modern tires. It all ends in an extra long (and functional) spoiler & parachute package that casts a shadow on the wheelie bar. We have a huge file on all the details that have gone into this awesome build, but there's just too much to list. So give us a call for the full scope of the investment. But for now, just know that not only does it have the appearance of a vintage competition machine, but as you continue to pour through at all the details, you'll see all the right components so it can genuinely be on the dragstrip tomorrow.
Inside, we could tell you how much we love the look of the original two-tone blue interior, but really you're going to enjoy how this Mustang gets down to serious business. This is a true NHRA-ready machine with a full roll cage and all the right additional hardware necessary for competition. It also swings away for the driver and passenger to gain easy entry. The Kirkey racing buckets are covered in a nice blue to coordinate with the interior, and more importantly, they keep you planted for those high-speed runs. The same goes for the Stroud racing harnesses. The quick release Cobra steering wheel is easy to grip even in gloves, and the Winters Side Winder shifter and huge shift light means it's easy to stay in the powerband. And that's a good thing because there's some serious power propelling you down the strip.
When the hood is lifted, you can get a great view at the combat-ready 408 cubic-inch stroker V8. This motor has been specially built to be both sturdy and speedy. It includes a SCAT crankshaft, SCAT pistons, Hastings rings, SCAT connecting rods, a full Lunati cam package, Crane rocker arms, aluminum heads, Quick Fuel 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Victor Sr intake, and Hooker Super Competition headers that feed the NHRA-required three-inch straight thru pipes. Just like the rest of this built there are a ton more details that we'd love to tell you about in this monster motor, but we have to move on to the rest of the drivetrain. Ford's trusty C4 unit has been completely built and reinforced to keep you running hard in the quarter-mile. It feeds a Dynatech 3.5-inch driveshaft that connects to a Ford 9-inch rear with Strange axles. The front end has tubular upper and lower arms with adjustable Lindblad shocks and springs. The rear has been given serious reinforcement by Calvert Racing. Add in a competition four-wheel disc brake package, and you soon realize how much was invested to create this turnkey drag racer.
We can't stress enough how much more detail has gone into this build, but quite frankly, you already know that you could never create something this race-ready for even triple our asking price. That's why you know you have to hurry for this deal. Call today!!!
