The powertrain consists of a Lincoln 368 V8, Tremec five-speed manual transmission, and quick-change rear end with 3.91 gears.

Listen as Craig explains all was the work done to the coupe and then the engine as Jay opens it up on the road.Behind the engine sits a T5 five-speed manual connected to a Speedway Engineering quick-change rear end with Porsche 930 CV joints.


The completely reworked interior of the Ford is every bit as impressive as the engine,there are unique two-tone bucket seats, a custom center console and a wooden Nardi steering wheel to set it all off.
