If you have the desire to go fast and look good doing it, this professionally built 1971 Mustang drag car has the right stuff. Completed in 2010, the bright-red SportsRoof is powered by a 572 CI big-block Ford engine that produces more than 1,000 hp thanks to Trick Flow heads, a Holley 4-barrel carburetor on a Trick Flow high-rise intake manifold, MSD performance distributor and tubular competition-style headers. Built on an NHRA-certified tube chassis, the Mustang is also equipped with a Powerglide automatic transmission, Ford 9-inch rear end with 4-link suspension setup, Wilwood brakes, Goodyear drag slicks, aluminium radiator, braided lines and drag chute. Lightweight Lexan and fibreglass was used throughout the build, including the lift-off hood with scoop and the rear spoiler. The aluminium-construction interior is equipped with a roll cage, G-Force 5-point safety harness and Auto Meter tachometer and gauges.
