It's been quite a while since I've been on CACC, but before @gt500flyboy and I put Trak Rat up for sale elsewhere in the internet, we wanted to offer it here first. This car has been in CACC for more than a decade (Joe Drumheller owned it before us) and is well-sorted and it would be great to have it stay in CACC if possible. John and I have $25,000+ invested in this car, including receipts for a recent $10k engine build. It's a well-built, well-balanced track car that pulls strong and corners hard. The engine has less than 1,000 miles on it and after several T-5z transmissions failing, we replaced it with a new TKO 600. We are selling the car because it’s not getting used due to a health condition. It's legally registered as an antique vehicle in VA. $15,000 firm.

1995 custom Mustang GT with Saleen body kit, Saleen rear spoiler, recently built $9,800 347ci motor coupled with a new TKO 600 5-speed with SureShift upgrade. Less than 1,000 miles on engine and transmission. Two sets of Ford Motorsports 17x9.5 original Cobra R wheels; one with Kumho 275/40/17 V710 track tires and second with Nitto 555 275/40/17 rain tires. Extra set of 2007 GT500 wheels available: front 18x9.5 with Toyo R888 275/35/18, rear widened to 18x11 with Toyo R888 315/30/18.

Suspension: HPM shock tower braces; complete HPM Bart's Works SLA tubular front suspension; HPM frame connectors; Baer "Track" brake system; front & rear (Mustang GT ABS functional) Aeroquip brake lines; Hawk Blue HP Plus brake pads; HPM Front brake ducts, cooling hoses, and spindle brackets; HPM Front Sway bar; Eibach rear springs; Koni rear shocks; HPM Lower control arms; and HPM rear sway bar.

When you all beat the health issue, you're gonna need a trackrat to celebrate. First Bill, now you guys. The band is really breaking up. Good luck.

Price seems reasonable. I can vouch for the engine build. Tyson's Machine is the only shop I'd trust for machine work.

Here's the dyno sheet comparing old motor and new build. Over 390rwhp. We changed the intake and exhaust a bit to get a lil less tq, but much more hp. Power band also much smoother and wider.final comparison.jpg
