The 351 Windsor might be old-school, circa 1970, but provides an estimated 350-400 very reliable horsepower. The coupe runs 180 to 190 degrees on a hot day thanks to the Griffin radiator, electric fan, and fan shroud.
You can't miss the wheels against the jet-black paint, and Gabriel picked out a nice set. The front 18x8s with low-profile tires have no fit issues with the stock wheelwells, and neither do the 18x8s in the rear.
He completed the car in his home garage. In the process, Gabriel got an education in the car arts, which he still deems as "three times as difficult" compared to the work he does everyday--renovating and building houses.
