      After much soul searching and countless hours thinking about it, I have decided to sell my race car and retire from drag racing. At 55 years of age I guess my interests are changing. I have to tell you that this has been one wonderful race car and I have raced it a lot over the last 13 years. So anyway, here is the information on the car.

      This Mustang is a authentic 1967 Mustang GT, originally Acapulco Blue with Black Décor bucket seats, it came from the factory equipped with the 390-4V and 4-speed transmission. I have attached a copy of the Marti report for this car. Unlike many race cars, I do have a clear title for the car and there are no title issues.

      When I bought the car, it had a 460-V8 with a Powerglide transmission and still retained the original shock towers, and you can imagine just how tight of a fit that was! So with a lot of help from some of the best friends in the world (you meet those drag racing you know) we cut the front end off at the firewall and installed a front suspension from a 1973 Pinto with a new rack and pinion steering. The result was perfect and the car drives and steers great. It launches hard and straight and drives straight all the way down the track even when braking. It handles great in the quarter mile and feels very safe. Of course, the real advantage is that I can remove the engine and transmission and re-install it in a half a day by myself now. Everything is easy to get to.

      The engine is now a 429 which came out of a 1969 Thunderbird. It was bored 30 over up until about a year ago when I finally wore it out after racing for some 11 years. It survived those 11 years just fine with a freshening every three years. When I took it apart to freshen it a year ago, the rings were all broken as the pistons were just plain wore out. So now it is bored 40 over and is all new. The engine has 2 passes on it, one at 10.632/125.41 mph and the other at 10.627/125.82 mph. As you can see, this car is very consistent. The heads are the stock cast iron heads that have been professional ported by Terry Adams of Lingenfelder Racing fame. Pistons are custom Diamond flat tops and compression ratio is 11.65:1. This engine really runs great with no issues. The transmission is an aluminum case Powerglide which has just been professionally rebuilt by Long Motorsports and it just plain works. It does have a trans brake which also works perfectly. It has a 9” ford rear end with a spool and a Strange third member and Strange Axles and driveshaft along with the big U-joints. This car is completely ready to go, just add fuel and I could go racing tomorrow without another thought. This is truly a great bracket car and I can’t begin to tell you how much fun I have had with it over the years. If I were going to keep racing I would not even consider selling it for any amount of money. But I feel my racing days are over, I have just lost interest in it and no longer have the urge to race.

      The paint on the car is average. It was a done by a young man right out of technical school and while it is presentable its not perfect. It looks great from a distance, but up close there are some runs and orange peel, some chips here and there from racing. Still, it shows good for racing.

      And it is a real 1967 Mustang GT Fastback which I believe adds quite a bit to its value alone. A lot of people have asked me if it could be made into a street car, and while anything is possible, it would take a bit of work as it is built for drag racing, only one taillight, open headers, just the needed gauges, etc.

      I am selling this car as-is, with no warranty whatsoever expressed or implied. Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs and arrangements. Bank wire transfer is preferred but I will work with you on other forms of payment if you prefer, however, all funds must clear the bank before the car it picked up.

      The price is $18,000 but I will consider offers and also Ford trades, but something I can have fun with on the street.

      If you have any questions please feel free to call me at 605-999-8489.
