1967 MUSTANG ROAD RACECAR
Professionally built car completed in 2010 and built in accordance to NASA CCR to compete in Super Unlimited, Super Touring 1, and/or American Iron Extreme. This car has been raced every season in NASA Nor-Cal region at Laguna Seca, Thunderhill, and Sonoma Raceway (Sears Point/Infineon) in Time Trials, Unlimited Division (TTU.) All tech and safety is current and up to date. I have receipts totaling over $120K in parts. The car weighs 3280 lbs with me in it and a full tank of fuel. The car makes 499HP at 7200 RPM at the rear wheels on the chassis dyno. Needless to say, it’s an absolute blast to drive! Below is a run down of the features….
The engine was built by Elliot Franklin of Mustang Corral in Grass Valley CA. It’s 408ci Dart Windsor small block with AFR heads, solid roller cam, 830CFM Holley, etc….. and runs on 91 Octane (my attempt to keep things affordable and not pay $12 per gallon for race fuel.) It’s a really good combination of parts with a super light weight rotating assembly so it RPM’s really fast and has a very smooth power curve that pulls really hard from 4500rpm on up….. It has a wet sump oiling system with a 3 quart Accu-Sump accumulator. Everything is cooled through a custom Griffin aluminum radiator with internal fluid to fluid oil cooler. The motor has 9 hours on it since the last refresh which included new bearings, rings, and valve springs. The original motor build cost me $30k so I’m meticulous in regards to maintenance… I change the oil and filter and check/adjust the valves after every race weekend. Elliot recommends that the motor be refreshed about every 30 hours and I happily comply as he has put together a bulletproof mill that has given me zero issues over the years.
The transmission a 4spd manual, G-Force GF4A crash-box (clutchless upshift/downshift) with a Long Shifter and Mcleod 8” Twin Disc hydraulic clutch and aluminum flywheel. The entire clutch assembly including the flywheel was replaced before my last race. The rear end is a floating 9 inch with 1/16” toe- in built into the housing. It has a nodular 3rd member with a 3.45 gear from Roush/Yates Racing.
Steering & Suspension
The rear suspension is a custom 3-link with panhard rod and Viking double adjustable coil overs. The front suspension is Global West negative wedge tubular upper and lower arms with Viking double adjustable coil overs. It has a Total Control power rack and pinion with a KRC pump. The Brake system is Wilwood… Superlight radial mount front calipers with 13” spec37 rotors force cooled by electric fans. Superlight rear calipers with 11” spec37 rotors force cooled by electric fans. It has a Wilwood pedal assembly with dual master cylinders, balance bar, and bias valve to rear for fine tuning on the fly. The car rolls on Team III Mini-lite aluminum wheels, 18x12 335/30/18 Rear, 18x11 315/30/18 Front…. and there are two sets.
The car has a fiberglass nose, hood, trunk, and rear bumper….. everything else is steel. The rear quarter panels and front fenders were stretched 3.5” and the wheel wells flared to accommodate the wheels and tires.
The roll cage is constructed of 0.090” DOM tubing as per the NASA CCR. The cage extends from the rear inside the trunk and goes through the firewall to the lower radiator support and has NASCAR style door bars. The fuel cell is a 22 gallon Fuel Safe. It has a 10 lb halon on-board fire system. The driver seat is a 14.5” Kirkey Roadrace seat with dual head supports for full containment. The passenger seat is a 15.5” Kirkey Roadrace seat. I outfitted the car with a passenger seat because I’m a driving instructor so it was a teaching aid for me…. and I’ll occasionally take friends/family on track and scare the ba-jesus out of them!
I have a lot of spare parts…. All good stuff, not used crap…. Brand new in the box duplicates of what is already on the car…. Powermaster Starter & Alternator, Griffin Radiator, MSD Ignition, Belts, Hoses, Brake Pads, Master Cylinders, Hubs, Bearings, Seals, etc.
I’ll include all of the setup notes and info on the car as well.
The car has a license plate, pink slip, and is registered but it is not a “street car.” It’s obnoxious loud and bucks/snorts and is really hard to drive on city streets at low speeds… and if you see a cop, you are most certainly getting pulled over! My motivation for registering the car was to have it insured in case I crashed it or if it ever got stolen.
I also have a Carson Racer 24’ Enclosed Trailer that I’m selling as well so I’d be willing to make a package deal.
I absolutely love this car and will miss it but I have a growing family and need to move toward something a little less extreme that is more family oriented.
or $50,000 with Trailer
Serious inquires only….. No tire kickers…. NO TEST DRIVES….
I’m planning to run the car at Sonoma in September if you’d like to see it run or go for a ride.
