Talk about vintage-Corey's GT features original-style '87 seats. We say that because this GT came factory-equipped with a red interior. He changed that and added white-face gauges along with an FRPP tachometer and Auto Meter Ultra-Lite and Phantom series gauges.

A Ford technician by trade, Corey knows his way around a toolbox. As such, he built the engine himself using Eagle rods, SRP pistons, an Anderson Ford Motorsport B-41 camshaft, Edelbrock Performer heads, and a corresponding Edelbrock Performer RPM intake. Diebler Machine Shop treated the heads to a port-and-polish job prior to Corey bolting them down. They feature Comp Cams roller rockers, Manley dual-spring valvesprings, and 2.02/1.60 valves. When we shot these photos at the '06 NMRA Motorsport Nationals, Corey's GT featured a Vortech S-Trim, but he has since upgraded to an R-Trim for more power. For tuning, a Holley Commander 950 engine management system is used.
