This car was purchased new at Bob Utter Ford in Sherman, Texas. The owner enjoyed his cars and loved to bring them to another level. He took this car to HPP Performance in Lewisville, TX to have the car upgraded to be docile on the street, but fully built for speed. The battery has been moved to the trunk and sits in it's own Strong Box. The driver's seat does show a little wear, but could be brought back with some leather treatment.
The following photos are new and were just taken. The rest were taken when we were selling the car for it's original owner a few years ago. The car was not sold and was given to the owners son. He only put an additional 2000 miles on the car. So as per the original ad, the car ha about 3000 miles on the drive train since the upgrades and now it has about 5000.
You will notice that the original shot of the odometer shows 15851 and now it's 15858. The odometer gears gave out and so the miles have not been registered since the car left us before. We knew the original owner well and he was having health issues and never drove the car after it was with us. Then he gave it to his son. The wheels have no curb rubs at all and the discs are extremely clean. This drivetrain is incredible. The engine began life as a 5.4 Liter DOHC from a Lincoln Navigator. It was removed and Completely rebuilt, performance style with special ported cylinder heads, upgraded fuel delivery, exhausts and supporting components. The car still runs on 93 Octane pump gas. The fuel system is overbuilt with 60lb. injectors. The owner considered an E85 tune at one point, but decided against it and maintained the pump gas set up. There is a custom aluminum radiator as well as a Cobra R front air dam for improved airflow.
The exhaust system consists of American Racing Long Tube Headers, a Bassani Cat Back and American Racing X-Pipe. This car needs to be driven to be appreciated. It does have a pretty stout clutch, and is not a car for an inexperienced driver.
