Car takes part in the SCCA National Autocross Championship

American Mark Stevens built an unusual Ford Mustang for the SCCA National Autocross Championship. What looks like a 1965 pogo is actually a restomod with a V8 5.0 boxed engine and SUV parts for trophy raids.

The two-door with incredibly inflated arches is assembled on a chassis with front and rear subframes from the current GT350. The body is completely new – it is coated with a stainless steel-It solution on a polyurethane basis and is put on a frame made of alloy steel. The suspension uses Penske adjustable struts. Fitted with GT350 racing brakes without ABS, and the 18-inch wheels are shod with 335/30 BF-Goodrich tires.

Under the hood of the muscle car, the “boxed” Coyote V8 5.0 is working, which in stock produces 466 horsepower and 570 Nm of torque. The unit is equipped with a GT350 intake and lubrication system as well as a Kooks Headers exhaust manifold and an electric water pump. The box is a standard Mustang ten-band automatic with a rotary mode switch on the steering wheel and petals.

But the most interesting thing about the car is the details from the trophy truck: front and rear optics plus rails in the cabin for attaching equipment.

Meanwhile, British driver and race engineer Ken Miles’ original Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R went off to the Original Spring Classic Mecum online auction for a record $ 3.85 million, making it the most expensive Mustang ever under the hammer.
