Modifications

Drivetrain
Original 289 2V rebuilt in 2009 by Fowler Automotive to race engine tolerances. Exceptional head porting, Comp Cams 265 DEH, KB281 pistons at 30 over. Original crank nitride treated and balanced along with lightened and balanced piston rods; windage tray fit under stock oil pan along with custom lifter valley splash shield for cool running and long life.
Hi-po manifolds (repro, ugh).
Engineered Cooling Products '67 small block aluminum radiator
Taurus electric fan
Interior
A/C console with the A/C removed; it's a white car in California. Not worth the clutter!
Dash mounted mechanical oil pressure and coolant temperature gauges and column mounted tach and volt meter.
Exterior
"Gently" expanded inner fenders to fit the 15" wheels and tires noted below.
Audio
Flowmasters.
Two owners before I bought it hacked the radio opening. It sort of fits a '68 Philco AM/FM Stereo that works OK.
Suspension
Shelby drop, export brace, monte carlo bar, sub frame connectors.

Quick steer kit (though that's technically not suspension). Yes, it has a custom adapter to work with the power steering.
Wheel and Tire
225/60x15s with Wheels Vintiques plain steelies. CSRP SWAP.4 spindle/front disk upgrade with the SN95 Mustang calipers
