Equus Bass 770

I meant to spell EQUUS in the title. Pretty stupid name to put on a car like the BASS in the rear but nice looking if you want a 250,000 dollar custom. Not all the site seemed to work in ie but Firefox worked ok, had trouble with the View Gallery section in IE.

Kinda of a cross between a Mopar and a Ford. Super Bee up front and Challenger in the rear

Front 235/45/17 tire on a 17x8 rim. 4.75 BS
Rear 275/40/17 tire on a 17x9.5 rim 5.0 BS
The rear end is narrowed 1 inch on each side so for a stock mustang that would be 6.0 BS in the rear.

Mustangs to Fear interior.
New 410 Stroked Windsor from DSS Racing
Top Loader 4 Speed
New Currie 9 inch Tru Trac 3.25 rear.
Anything is for sale including this car.

I sent them an email asking why they modeled their car after a 67-68 Mustang, then put a chebby motor in it when the 5.8 Shelby engine makes more HP, and TQ........Then slap a 250k price on it

Butt ugly in my opinion. Reminds me of some of those craigslist post we see where someone took a decent mustang and did a pi$$ poor job of welding and bondo work.
