    FFR-7859 MkIV - 427W / TKO / IRS

    Been toying with the idea of starting over (again) and the 25th anniversary changes (FFR's and me and the missus) have pushed me to listing this beast for sale. I had this one on the road since 2014, and just flipped over 14k miles. Picked it up from another builder who got about 1/4 into the project. I took it back down to the frame and started from scratch. It started out with a nice 347, and after losing a lifter and cam, I decided to replace it with a brand new Dart block 427w. $53,000 OBRO.

    As glorious as this tire-liquefying torque monster is, I've been wanting to do a 4th build with the new Coyote, new IRS and the other recent refinements launched with the 25th anniversary cars.

    Y'all know her at the July 2016 POM car...BMW Imola Red is teh sex IMNSHO and I'll probably do the same color on the next one.


    FFR-7859
    - Dart 427W motor - RHS 200cc heads, Levy Racing cam, Weiand Stealth intake, FiTech EFI, should be somewhere well north of 500hp.
    - IRS suspension w/ upgraded 550hp halfshafts, 3.73 gears
    - Tremec TKO-600 trans w/ upgraded syncros and midshift
    - Russ Thompson turn signal and dropped trunk.
    - FFMetal dash and recessed battery box in the trunk.
    - FFR Halibrand wheels, 315-35/17 and 255/40/17 tires.
    - Gas-N stainless headers and sidepipes.
    - MR2 electric power steering pump. Milled front upper control arm rear legs to allow more positive caster.
    - Cruise control - great for the highway trips in a beast like this!

    Full build site is here - though I never updated it to reflect the new motor installed this spring, along with new carpet and dash vinyl.

    A few recent shots are attached, along with video from last week before the cold snap. (pardon the bugs on the front....it's too cold to wash now!)
