Originally an open track car, this 1968 Ford Mustang has been returned to road spec whilst retaining a number of race car features. It still has the full roll cage, although the side impact bars have been removed to ease getting in and out. The motor is a small block screamer that happily spins the wheels in the first three gears! Suspension is all Global West’s finest making the car handle better than any 45 years old car should. It actually handles better than a number of modern sports cars! This is helped by the power rack and pinion steering and awesome Baer brakes which benefit from a Hydratech hydraulic power unit and P-Zero tires. Read more!
It’s light and fast, as well as very capable in the corners. Altogether a huge amount of fun to drive.
The car was built to drive and not just look pretty. After several years on the road in its current trim, all the kinks have been worked out of it and the car drives beautifully.
