Steve Strope is a fascinating mind that makes up a whole story before making his new car vision true. He links different series of events in such a creative and totally unexpected way.
Steve is the genius who selected `66 Mustang over a bigger model only because the usage of Shelby R components. If you are not a Shelby expert, you would definitely not be able to decode the Shelby complex composition of tiny tidbits. It consists of Shelby radio-delete plate, knobs, handles, door panels, and various other details.
There is more to it than these tweaks. The engine pulls the whole mastery out. Thus, Strope looked for a new one at the Ed Pink Racing Engines. There was the right one, the 255ci, V8s that powered Indy cars from 1964–1978, which was qualified as No. 1 at the `64 race and was the winner at the ’65 event.
The front transmission engine mount was custom-built, whereas the rear mount is Ford Mustang.
