1971 Ford Mustang Drag Car

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.
