Gateway Classic Cars Philadelphia is excited to present this "Nasty" 1969 Mustang Pro Touring Car. Designed with help from Murray Pfaff of Pfaff Designs.This Mustang has graced the cover of Modified Mustangs and Fords in December of 2011. Many of the modifications were meant for the trained eye to have to really examine the car to notice. The changes in many instances are so subtle that there is a fine line between that which has been there since 1969 and the new features that make the design special. The only body panel that has been left unchanged is the rear decklid. The entire car, with the exception of the hood scoop is metal. Some body mods include, Shaved Drip Rails, Modified Boss 429 Hood Scoop, modified headlight buckets and quarter panel end caps. Frenched front marker lights and turn signals. The rear belly pan has been smoothed and the exhaust exits through the center. The quarter panels have been customized to resemble the 1968 Mustang. The rear tail light panel has been smoothed. The floor pan of the car has been sprayed with a smooth bed liner material for easy cleaning. The highlight of the car is the engine. It is a Ford racing Crate Shelby GT 500 Supercharged engine straight from Ford. Originally rated at 500 HP it has been Dyne tuned and it should be putting out about 525 to the rear wheels. The engine is backed by a Mcleod RS-X dual disc clutch and a Tremec T-56 transmission. The car has a new Curie rear and Currie axles. These are all new parts. They are not salvage parts from a donor car. An aluminum radiator with a huge fan keeps everything cool and at proper operating temperature. It is covered with a trick aluminum cover that was made to direct air flow into the radiator and to just lo ok cool. The fuel system begins with an aluminum fuel cell that sits between the rear bulkhead of the interior and the enclosed trunk area. It is a return style fuel system with all Aeromotive components including the a1000 fuel pump, filter and fuel injector rails. The frame of the car is custom made and really ties everything together. The floor, firewall and the front structure were all custom made. The suspension begins with a Mustang II style front clip with power rack and pinion steering. Ride Tech Air Wave shocks upfront and a Ride Tech 4 Bar System in the rear control ride height automatically when you start the car. The air ride also enables you to handle speed bumps and drives without issues. The brakes are from SSBC and are 13" on the front and 14" in the rear. They are all 4 piston calipers andare powder coated black. It utilizes a balance bar pedal setup instead of a proportioning valve and has three small master cylinders, one for the clutch and one for the front brakes and the rear. The interior is completely customized. First thing is this is nice leather. These are not the cheap seats that you buy from some aftermarket performance shop. They were designed to resemble the seats you would find in a new Mustang only better. They even have orange stitching. The door panels were custom designed and made along with the console. They are all wrapped in leather as well. The carpet that was used is a very plush automotive carpet and looks great. The upholstery shop even made custom floor mats from the same material. The steering column is a tilt model with a LeCarra steering wheel. The front dash has a brand new pad and features a brand new gauge pod from JME enterprises with Autometer gauges. The Ride Tech Air suspension controls are mounted on the center console and are easily accessible. The sound system is an Alpine head unit with 4 large speakers and two tweeters in the door panels. It sounds great and is very smooth and loud. The antenna is hidden in the windshield. There are two Optima batteries that are tucked in the quarter panels on either side. Also there is a master switch in the console for security and for showing the car. The car was built with the entire drive train package in mind the whole time. The car was finished just in time for the Detroit Autorama 2011. The car went to numerous shows in 2011 and it won awards at all of them. These shows included The Detroit Autorama, Good Guys Columbus, and the SAAC/SVT Nationals. This car was built by highly skilled professionals who restore cars for a living. If this were a customer car in their shop the cost to build this car would be well over $350,000 to build. This is a fantastic car that someone will enjoy for years at a fraction of what it would cost to build.
