You are looking at a 23 T fiberglass roadster. This car was run at the Maxton mile for several years and has been parked for several years. This car has a 140" wb and was set up for a sbc and auto trans. it has a 8.8 with 270 gear and I assume a spool. Look at the photos and it will show a tuneau cover, very nice 4" drop axle, nice fiberglass nose. The side panels are steel and the hood is fiberglass. The front tires look like new but I would check the dates before You run them. This car was set up for running the mile course. The previous owner told me he ran a mild 305 with a turbo 350 and ran 146. With a hot little 350 this little car would probably run 180 or better. I have run over 200 at Bonneville and I can tell you there is nothing like feeling that chute open at over 200. This car will need some work! I would add some extra supports and clean up some of the welds. It would need up grades like new seat belts, fire system, ect. There is no Gauges in the car and no wiring. The Kirky Seat is small but the roll cage is large. I am 6'1" and fit well in the cage. It has corvair steering and all the steering system looks new. Rear tires would need to be replaced. Most drivers at the mile run drag radials on the back. I would put skinny front runners on the front. I have a Bonneville car which I just ran at Ohio and will be at Bonneville in Aug with it. I am selling this car because I don't need two. If you have a hot little sb sitting around ---well there we go! Buy it fix it up and join us at Bonneville this year. Please ask questions , I have a good ebay score and don't rip anyone off. The car is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the auction early. This car does not have a title.
Oklahoma recently saw the destructive power of an EF5 tornado, but in the aftermath of the devastation, we've also been witness to the incredible resilience of the human spirit. Moore, OK resident Jack Haden survived the storm but found that his 2003 Ford Mustang wasn't quite as lucky. As you can see in the image above, the tornado's 200+ mph winds did quite a number on the car, but while most people would have likely called their insurance company and scrapped the car, Haden had other plans.
After finding the car and seeing that its V6 still fired up, Haden spent a couple hours getting the car, um... roadworthy(?)... by removing the doors and front clip, cutting off the roof and putting on some new wheels and tires. He noticed that driving it around brought some comic relief to an area that needed a reason to laugh and smile. Check out the KSBI TV news report video below showing before and after pictures of the tough 'Stang, as well as a video showing the newly lightweight coupe doing a smoky burnout.
Each year at the Detroit Auto Show, the top vehicle designs are recognized with the prestigious EyesOn Design award for production and concept vehicles. This year, the 32 EyesOn Design judges (comprised of current and former vehicle designers including Chrysler designer and SRT president Ralph Gilles, Kia designer Peter Schreyer and retired General Motors designer Wayne Cherry) handed out three awards for the Best Concept Vehicle, Best Production Vehicle and Innovative Use of Color, Graphics, and Materials.
Beating out the Mercedes C-Class and Ford F-150, the 2015 Ford Mustang was named the Best Production Vehicle as the top auto show debut at this year's Detroit show. The 2014 Volvo Concept XC Coupe took home awards as the Best Concept Vehicle and for its Innovative Use of Color, Graphics and Materials.
Considering the Volvo's primer grey hue and subtle orange accents, it was a rather surprising winner for Innovative Use of Color, Graphics, and Materials over flashier concepts like the Toyota FT-1 and our Editors' Choice top pick, the Kia GT4 Stinger. Other vehicles in the running for the concept car award include the GT4 Stinger and Audi Allroad Shooting Brake
Earlier this week, Ford invited us to Charlotte, NC, to ride in an all-new 2015 Mustang fitted with its turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder. It's the first forced-induction, four-cylinder ponycar for the Blue Oval since the sun set on the 1986 Mustang SVO. We jumped at the opportunity, as only a handful of people have ever been in the passenger seat of this new car, and most automotive media won't get as close as we did until this fall.
As we revealed in our Deep Dive, Ford will slot this new turbocharged four as premium powerplant between its naturally aspirated 3.7-liter V6 and the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8. At last mention, the automaker said the direct-injected, all-aluminum engine will develop 305 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque, returning the best fuel economy of the three powerplants in the process. History buffs will note that those figures are appreciably stouter than the 200 horses and 240 lb-ft that the '86 SVO realized out of the same displacement, and the latter's figures were hugely impressive at the time. On paper, the new EcoBoost four looks to be a good fit for most owners who want to balance performance with efficiency - we were eager to see how it felt from the passenger seat.
