As you can see the car has a completely changed attitude already thanks to a VFN 3” cowl hood and VFN’s smooth-faced nose that’ll set this Mustang apart from others. As previously mentioned, under the cool nose-piece will be a belt-driven F2 Procharger on a 406 cube SBC. Harold over at Furo Racecraft has been working tediously to get the 25.3 chassis and cage in the car, striving to fit the cage as tight as possible to allow for maximum room inside the interior to make the car a little more street-friendly to get in and out of on a regular basis.
A special mention also goes to Race Craft Inc. for their new killer 9” Ford rear end housing and their all-new Stiletto Race K member. Greg commented on the fit and finish of the K-member as truly remarkable, bolted in with no troubles and the quality was impressive.
Not to get too optimistic, but I don’t think it’d be too far off to possibly see some 7.9x runs from this ‘Stang in the future, if you think about it – the Jeep went 8.55 with this motor before the refresh and addition of an air-to-water intercooler at 3260 pounds, while Greg is planning to have this Mustang weigh in at around 2800 with him in the car. They believe they will pickup a little power in the motor department with a few minor adjustments as well as the obvious aerodynamic improvements the Mustang provides.
