Lot Details & Additional Photographs
VIN: 138675K102963 Mileage: 4000 Built as a one-off custom at Straight Line Customs of Burnsville, Minnesota around 2013. With a 383 cubic inch stroker V8 engine with Quick Fuel SS750PV carburetor, Herman Big Tube headers, and electronic ignition by ATI. The car produces approximately 450 horsepower and 460 foot-pounds of torque. The engine block paint matches the car and most parts are polished aluminum or stainless steel. The cam has a very "choppy" idle, and along with the Flowmaster exhaust this car sounds amazing. A three thousand RPM high-stall torque converter is used with a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission and fed to a Ford 9" rear-end with a modular center section. This car is very fast. It handles and stops just as well with Wilwood electric assisted power steering and adjustable brakes using CPP big brake components. A four-link rear suspension with Viking Performance adjustable coil-over springs, UTI shock absorbers, and Hotchkis trailing arms put all of this power to the road. Custom Foose wheels are wrapped in BFGoodrich g-force tires in 225/40/ZR18 front and 275/40ZR18 in the rear. The exterior in Glasurit Honda Superformance Blue with a grey convertible top. The paint looks amazing, and the grey top provides a dramatic contrast seldom seen. The interior is nicely redone in black leather with bucket seats, and a console that houses a B&M Magnum Grip Street Bandit Shifter for the transmission. An Alpine am/fm/cd player with aux and four speakers with an amplifier. The dashboard has been updated with Dakota Digital VHX Series gauges, and Vintage Air heating and air conditioning.
