We keep our clients projects close to the vest and never use their builds to boost our reputation unless they specifically give us permission to do so. The below build are a small sampling of the work we have performed over the years.
1965 Mustang Coupe Restomod "Chili Pepper": Full Griggs suspension IFS / 3 link rear suspension conversion, complete rotisserie restoration powered by a Ford SB 347 with a T trim Vortech supercharger through a fully custom build T5 billet gear transmission. The car posted a 11.1 sec quarter mile even though it was built as an open track car.
Factory five 65 Coupe "Falcon One": Full Factory Five build powered by a SHOP Automotive Twin turbo in house build Ford Coyote engine producing 900+ rwhp and a building foundation tearing torque number. This is one of the fastest cars I’ve ever driven and though the owner requested no stats be posted about his build I can say it is faster than 90% of the super cars with a price tag of 1 million plus.
1970 F250 "Henry": A “Rust”-o-mod project. Per the customers request we made we left the exterior appearance alone leaving it with the look of most non re-painted 70’s era Nebraska farm truck while making it run like a modern car with a nice interior. Starting life as a 1970 Ford F250 HighBoy it was fitted with a new custom chassis with ABS and Traction control. Henry is powered by a SHOP Ford 385 based block displacing 605cid equipped with a SHOP tuned Holley fuel injected engine producing 772 rwhp on pump gas. The interior is 100% custom from our Plano, TX based interior shop featuring a worn saddle leather look. With a custom Vintage air HVAC system, the cab is always comfy no matter the time of year.
1968 Corvette Stingray “Silent Killer”: One of our EV conversions that utilized the high performance Tesla P85 drive motor, trans-axle and batteries programmed through EV Wests drive train management systems. With a curb weight of just 3100 pounds this “Silent Killer” was amazingly fast. The owners best ¼ mile run so far was 9.92et. Outside of the ev conversion and custom battery enclosure we fabricated a chromoly tube roll cage and build a custom IRS suspension around the Tesla trans-axle.
1969 Mustang Fastback “Howler”: Our largest fabrication project ever, the Howler is a mid-engine conversion. The shear about of man hours that went into this was staggering but the results were “breath taking” according to our customer. Powered by a heavily modified VooDoo 5.2L Ford equipped with a complete Holly EFI system and an SHOP twin turbo system this rocket of a fastback laid down 1488 rwhp on 100% ethanol. Putting the power to the ground was the hardest part of packaging this. We were able to fit a custom Porsche G35 transmission and IRS suspension with a cantilevered inboard coil over allowing massive 345 tires in the rear. We are sure this car would have won a SEMA battle of the builders top award if our customer had allowed us to enter it into the competition
