Griggs Racing 1965 GR350 Mustang

Recommended Posts

So after ten years I'm finally putting my 1965 Fastback together.


I'm making a street legal track car.


So here comes the sacrilege... Its going to be powered by a 650HP LS7!! The plain and simple fact is, the engine is simple (has less moving parts than a Ford 4.6 or 5.4) , extremely lightweight (435lbs.), fuel efficient, compact and very reliable.

Are you still working on this?



I am. Just finished the roll cage and the body work. Time for sanding and blocking and sanding and blocking, and more sanding and even more blocking and then eventually a few coats of Ferrari Grigio Titanio.


Car was recently in Hot Rod magazine. http://www.hotrod.com/featuredvehicles/hrdp_1005_hot_rod_project_builds/1964_chevy_nova_competitive.html




I hope not! Putting a piece of crap Chevy into a Mustang... :finger:





As soon as Ford can produce an engine capable of the output, reliability and WEIGHT of a built LS7 I'll install it. Until then the LS7 stays.
