Lot #1102 - This spectacular Mustang, the "Bad Apple," is fresh out of a painstaking, cost-no-object Pro-Touring build with over 2,400 man hours invested in the custom bodywork and outrageous PPG Money Green pearl paint alone. It is comprehensively upgraded and customized, turning the car into a jaw-dropping showpiece. It is powered by an all-aluminum, officially licensed Carroll Shelby 427 FE big block, pro-built by Jim Green's Performance Center, built to 452cid. It is backed by a Tremec TKO-600 5-speed manual transmission driving an Eaton 9" rear end with 3.73 limited-slip. The chassis is fully framed and welded and features a custom Jim Meyer control arm front suspension and Morrison 4-bar rear, plus coilover shocks, 9" Wilwood brakes and bespoke 18" Rushford modular alloy wheels at all four corners. The custom bodywork includes raised floor/tunnel to accommodate racing style cross members and the custom driveshaft, smoothed front and rear aprons with tucked in and smoothed bumpers, re-imagined side scallops that now match the sharper angle of the rear wheel well, totally shaved trim, custom Shaker-style hood with a functional carbon fiber scoop, smoothed grille opening, hand-fabricated rear deck lid spoiler, painted stripes and more. This mustang fastback is truly one-of-a-kind.
