very cool build I am jealous... you beat me to the punch as I too am planning to build a retro restomod Trans Am Shelby with Gulf livery but using a 68 Coupe instead. Had this planned 4 years ago and would have started build 2 years ago but (word is not allowed) out of my control delayed my move so it delayed the build. Should see mine around Sept 2017

Thats awesome, can't wait to see your build.  I thought mine would be finished a year ago.  Little did I know....
That being said, my builder has done an unbelievable job and he can take as long as he wants.....did I just say that?   Head knock

#1132 raced at Sebring in '71 and '72 in the "B" production class. I wonder if it was in the Gulf colors back then.
The "R" model covered quarter windows were a nice touch. Noticed the widened rear fender arches. Good stuff!

Looking forward to your next update!

One newer pic.  Have decided NOT to use the OPP one piece windows for a lot of reasons....
Waiting on vented windows (due on 1/16)...dyno tuning and alignment next week...hopefully!

That my friend is one fantastic build,if I wasn't hung up on day two vintage race cars and parts I would be leaning in this direction. Looks like all the best components are being used and should bring lots of smiles when finished and dynoed. Best of luck and keep us posted on the numbers it makes and the places it will go. Cool one

i'm thinking that they didn't hit the 8250 rpm limit is because it was a new engine.  Pretty sure it may have hit some higher numbers but i'm very happy.  Torque curve is really flat!

I have never seen a pull where torque and horsepower didn't cross at 5250 rpm.

Ok, after a little Google searching, I came up with this on norotors.com:

"Most wheel dyno programs "scale" the horsepower and torque curves to fit them neatly on the same graph, and that is what's done to yours.  Compare the numbers at the right and left sides of the graph."

I'm a little dense but I can't seem to grasp it, lol.

Bingo, right on 5250rpm when both graphs are aligned .

More pics please.

I was finally able to pick it up today.  The guy doing the alignment talked to Bruce Griggs of Griggs Racing a few times to try and get the alignment and suspension adjusted.  The support helped.  The car rides better than I thought it would and handles like its on rails.  No discernible body lean thru curves giving the driver plenty of confidence.  Really....the only disturbing time I had was when I tried to shift from 4th to 3rd on the highway when I was actually in 3rd and hit 2nd, lol!  Thank goodness it has an 8250 redline.....The car was a hit at the local Cars n Coffee.  Absolutely loving it.....
