For sale in our Chicago showroom is this stunning silver 1979 Ford Mustang. Having had the same owner for the last 29 years, this Mustang has come a long way! The original economical 4 cylinder and manual transmission were tossed to make way for the behemoth 393 stroker V8 and built C4 automatic transmission. Pumping an estimated 550+ horsepower, this 13:1 compression motor could move a house! Helping that monster motor breathe is a pair of Pro Comp 220 aluminum cylinder heads port-matched to a Victor Jr. intake. The rods and pistons are forged to handle all of the forces of detonation inside the engine with ease. Roller rockers, chromoly pushrods, and roller lifters all help reduce friction in the valvetrain to make this engine as efficient as can be.
The C4 was built to handle all of the abuse, and a 3800-4200 stall converter was used to keep the engine in its power curve. And aluminum driveshaft keeps the spinning weight down, and the 8.8” rear end has had work done to keep it living a long useful life. Sporting a set of 4.10 gears, this Mustang practically jumps out of the hole. The entire vehicle was built around ripping down the quarter mile, from the 8-point roll cage, to the drag-oriented shocks and everything in between. Turn the key and this feisty Fox body fires into an aggressive idle, ready to bound down the drag strip, hungry for victory.
This tin-can with an enormous engine is ready to take you for a ride! Options include: Kill Switch, Radial Tires with Raised White Letters, Racing Wheels, Alloy Wheels, and a Positraction Rear Axle.
