1988 5.0 Notchback NASA American Iron race car


Recommended Posts

Going on eBay tonight (2/24).....


This notchback has been a race car most of its life. Fully legal for NASA American Iron or Mustang-Camaro Challenge. This is about the cheapest, most fun way to go racing.


I bought it a year ago and did only 3 track days before it developed engine problems. It handled well and was really fun to drive. I'm selling it without the engine. It is otherwise complete and ready to go. Drop in a crate motor and go racing!


Important note: the wheels on the car in the main picture are no longer on the car. It now has 17 x 9 Torque Thrust Ford Mustang wheels in excellent condition, with performance street tires. Also, the dented front left fender seen in the photo has been replaced, but it has not yet been painted.

Interested, but need to sell my circle car first (then learn how to turn right!). Any other CMC drivers out there confirm that this would be a good car to start playing in?

Motor developed a rod knock. I was planning on rebuilding it but I guess I'm open to offers. I don't have the specs handy but I'll post them this weekend.

polished crank and rod

ported Dart Windsor Jr Lite aluminum heads

Engine has rod knock. Would prefer to keep the engine and rebuild it, but I can sell it with the car if someone really wants both.
