- 5.4 L
When it comes to upgrading classic muscle and sports cars like the Ford Mustang , one American tuner that has had their share of time in the garage is Year One. This tuning firm spends their time selling parts for similar projects and building custom projects of their own to show off their skills. Their latest package, the Sportroof, takes a standard 1969 Ford Mustang and gives it a very cool modern look. The project is still in its development stages, but the first rendering revealed by the tuner shows it should be a slick ride.
The exterior of the ’69 Mustang will feature a clean upgrade package with new front and rear bumpers, a new engine bonnet, and a new set of Forgeline wheels. The rear wheels will be mini-tubbed to fit massive 345 wide tires.
Under the hood, the standard engine will be replaced by a new, supercharged 5.4-liter V8 engine borrowed from the Shelby GT500 . The new engine will be mated to a new a Tremec T56 6-speed transmission. The package will also include a new Griggs Racing suspension in the front and rear and Baer 14-inch 6-piston brakes.
