Austin's 1985 Mustang

Now that I've found the time to get this info out there, I'll start a proper build thread for the car. I'll start with a basic rundown of mods and parts.

351w bored 30 over
Comp Thumper roller cam
Weiand intake
Holley 650 DP
AC/Heat delete
Flaming River manual steering rack
MSD ignition & rev limiter
T5 tranny
4.10 Auburn Locker gears
Ford Racing braced diff cover
Welded subframe connectors
Crazy big sway bars
5 lug conversion with Cobra brakes
6 point cage
Line lock
Relocated battery with track switch
Lowered 1.5" F&R
Doug Thorley full length headers with cutouts

There's more that I cannot recall at the time... I'll update as I remember.

BTW, just over 1600 miles on the entire rebuild.

PICS!!!!

Enjoy it while you can. According to the poll, you will only have it for 85 more days

Looks very nice, inside AND out! Looks like you already ran it out of gas. Pull that fire extinguisher out and turn it upside down occasionally.
