Rob Reaser
July 1, 2003

With the performance quotient well in hand, Tim turned toward styling matters. The factory seats were recovered and treated to "331" seatback embroidery, Auto Meter gauges were added, and Tim blasted the interior with a UPR billet shotgun. A custom stereo system (which leaves room in the trunk for little more than a couple sandwiches), a light bar, and custom "331" fender badging put the wraps on this pony project.

Tim finished the drop-top just prior to the '02 World Ford Challenge, where we met up with him for this shoot.

He hadn't yet had a chance to try this latest incarnation on the quarter-mile, but a few holeshots and some dyno time are in the future for this formerly whacked GT.
