History
Car was originally restored? in 1984 for a news article about "The Mustangs of Kansas City." It was driven less than 10,000 miles from then until I purchased the car in 2014. I then began a teardown and buildup as a restomod touring car. Though not much progress has been made, I currently have a 347 ci stroker motor with Fitech fuel injection waiting to be installed. I am also installing a 3.27 limited slip rear end with disk brakes and an AOD from a 1991 Mustang. Much more needs to be done but I am working as fast as my funds and time will allow.
