Specs & Mods
- Ownership Status
- Currently Own
- S197 Model
- GT 4.6L
- Mods - Handling
- All stock at this point, other than the shock tower brace the original owner added. First round of mods will be a set of 2007 gt500 wheels and square summer tire set up, fluid flush with Motul fluid along with quality pads and rotors - will probably swap in the gt500 "dust shields/backing plates" at the same time.....then just have a little fun learning the car (and my) limits.....a work in progress
- Mods - Power
- Again, all stock. Plenty of power for me to start with. May go to a one piece driveshaft, Barton shifter and urethane motor mounts at some point - when it needs a clutch (hopefully not too soon) I may have the trans rebuilt with the close ratio gearset that's available. The rear is the stock trac-lok with 3:55s
- Mods - Exterior
- Corral off a 6cyl grill, FRPP chrome bullitts right now.....
- Mods - Interior
- Stock cloth interior with the IUP
- Background & Plans
Recently purchased from the son of the original owner who unexpectedly passed away - This was Viola's "baby" she put 75k on it and always had another car to drive - this was just her cruiser....Looking forward to continuing enjoying this car.
A chance conversation with an acquaintance turned me on to a "mustang only" event at a local track.....even though it was "parade laps" with no passing (we were on a 2.3 mile road course in groups of 8 with a pace car) I was hooked!
