Well done Darrell!

3 shows, 3 first places:

Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals Gold
Autobahn Mustang and Shelby Show 1st in class and Best of show
World of Wheels 60-67 Conservative Modified Hardtop- 1st Place

Darrell came to us with a plan to make his REAL 67 Shelby like no other. He wanted to update the suspension and brakes to that of a modern car. We helped Darrell with that desire and the car is fitted with our front & rear custom valved Bilstein coilover systems. We built a full floating 9" rear end for the project with a 13" rear brake system including parking brake. The front binders are our 13x1.25" front brake system with forged aluminum calipers.

The motor is a terror. 427 side oiler stroked to 482cu that spits out 608ft-lbs and 700hp!

The 3-Link rear end does a great job of putting the power down. The 68 Fastback Zombie222 project we worked on puts out over 1000ft-lbs, does 0-60 in 1.9 seconds and will lift the wheels for part way down the drag strip.
