Running gear has been obtained!

Last weekend I brought home the drive train of a salvaged 2000 Mustang, the first step in a long list of tasks needed to build a Factory Five Roadster. Everything looks to be in pretty good condition, with only dust and typical aluminum tarnish on it; the car had been sitting unused in a garage for more than 7 years. The car was a stolen recovery and most of the interior was gutted, so unfortunately I haven’t seen it run yet. All records point to it only having 15,000 miles on it. All in all, I got the 4.6L SOHC engine, T5 transmission, exhaust components, fuel tank, rear end and some of the harness. Unfortunately I was unable to get the entire harness so will have to buy one.



013 014 The engine is in pretty good shape overall. First steps include cleaning it up, removing the AC compressor, disabling PATS on the ECU and getting it started!

015 016 017 The transmission and rear end above. The axle is destined for a cleaning and new paint job.
