The Dragon is a 1968 Mustang Fast back that has been extensively customized. The owner raced NASCAR Late model stock cars for years and wanted to combine the feel and power of a race car with the classic looks of a Mustang. With that in mind we have built for him a tube chassis and placed the mustang body over that. Added a big engine and race car suspension.

It rides at 5 inches off the ground. The original wheel flares were moves up 7.5 inches to accomplish this. The transmission tunnel dominates the interior of this mustang so a console was designed to allow the dash to flow in-between the seats and to the back. A custom dash that gives the drive the feel of being in cockpit meant for business. A custom floor pan and wheel tubs were created to contain the 274 R15 tires in the front and the 315 R15 tires in the back.

Power comes form a Ford 547 big block with Jon Kasse P51 heads, and our EFI system. Offsetting the weight of the big engine was on our minds as we moved the engine to be located behind the front cross member. Of course this forced the moving of the fire wall back to the windshield base. To contain such power we used a tremac TKO-600 5 speed and a Speedway Engineering Quick change.
