Eckert’s Rod Shop supercharged a GT40 engine and put it in the back of a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1. This is the result.
Ford recently revealed a series of tuned Mustangs that are heading to SEMA 2012 next week, but the Stang to keep an eye out for at the Las Vegas event is this mid-engined Mustang customized by Eckert's Rod Shop. Combining the body of a 1969 Mustang Mach 1 with the powertrain of a GT40, the Mach40 is powered by a 5.4-liter engine upgraded with a supercharger and converted to run a flex-fuel system. In other words, this is no ordinary muscle car.
Output is rated at 850 horsepower, and hundreds of man hours went into customizing the body and suspension. Check out the project build pictures and we'll hopefully learn more about the mighty Mustang after it touches down in Vegas.
