In the Fantom works S4 E15 about a F1 ford pickup when Dan delivers the truck to the customer you can see a good shot of the Red CS sitting right behind the truck . Hopefully there will be a episode on it soon.

Did anybody watch Fantom Works last night? It had the episode with the GT/CS.
Did not see the whole episode, but the owner wants new Mustang performance and handling, in his 1968 289 powered GT/CS. The story was that his Father had a GT/CS back in the day, but the owner wants to go crazy fast.
Installing a Coyote Aluminator engine.

Fantomworks is not on in my area right now. It's my favourite of all the car shows. Hopefully that episode will be available for me sometime.

I watched up to the point they started putting that engine in the car. I can't stand it when someone feels the need to put some outrageous engine in a classic car. If you want to rebuild the original engine and use modern internals fine, but put the born-with engine back where it belongs.

I think there is room for everyone's vision in the hobby.

Nothing is better than making a classic Ford be a "Demon Destroyer" with new Ford technology!

The first generation Mustang is around 3,000 pounds! She don't need 700 HP to put a licking on a 4,500 pound bloated whale in the quarter!

David Athans went low tens with a nitrous boosted 347! Love it!!

For heavens sake an EFI conversion?? What a great add on for a classic car to be more drivable!!

My 351 stroked to 460 is basically a born with engine! Now add a supercharger and YAAAAAAA BAAAABBBBEEE!!! That may be next!!

It is Season 8, episode 8. To be continued in episode 9.

Good example of why you need to thoroughly inspect a car or have it inspected.
When it rolled into the shop, it did not look too bad. But the amount of rust was extensive. A ton of work and $$ just to get the body right.

IMHO, you do not put a Coyote engine in a rare car along with all the changes to make it happen. Just do it to a regular Mustang. But, to each his own.

I wonder if these guys are really that inept or if itís all for TV.
They also spent over two years on the car.
This photo pretty well says it all.
