This. Is. Amazing.

It's like a mix between the SVO and the upcoming 2015 2.3L Mustang.

Late model isn't building it... It's an autoblog contributor. But yeah, very cool.

That gas tank looks like a recall in waiting ...


I wonder what possessed them to use a 4 and not something else/bigger?

i believe they left off trying to find a transmission to bolt up to it and just put subframe connectors on it. i've been keeping up w/ this build =)

It was his family's car. Was off the road, when he got it. He's spending quite a small fortune on it.

Ford gave it to them . 5.0 swaps (both old and new) have been done on Foxbody's before, so this is something entirely unique.

This build had much lower aspirations in the early days, then some sponsors got involved and the scope of the project increased tremendously.
