The Mustang was media blasted and much rust was revealed. The triangulated nine inch Ford rear end was welded in place has well as the Mustang II front suspension. Then it went on the rotisserie. All the rust was cut out and all new metal welded in. The underneath side of car was then smoothed out as well as the firewall and engine compartment. Sub frame connectors were added for more integrity.
The underside is complete and now the suspension will be painted Gray Metallic and refitted.
The suspension on this car is awesome to say the least. Once it was set all up it was back to the body shop to finish the body work.
The 347 Ford crate motor dyno test at 425 HP and this car sounds great. The upholstery was custom sewn in white. The little car took on a huge transformation and is now a show car. Do it right once and these are the results. These types of cars are not inexpensive to build.
