Ashton is in the process of doing some restoring on his silver 2000 SVT Lightning, build # 3872. When he bought the Lightning, it already had ACC Black Lightning carpet to go with the black seat upholstery (part# LTP-9904SUB). To further dress up the interior, Ashton elected to add a set of Lloyd Lightning SVT floor mats. I will walk you through the simple install to show you what a difference the Lightning Floor Mats made in Ashton’s truck.
Everyone who is a Mustang fanatic knows the name Saleen. The name is almost as synonymous as Shelby is at this point with the Mustangs moniker. Face it, what Mustang guy has not heard of or considered a set of Saleen wheels for their SN95 car or a 10-12 Saleen grille for their S197?
Just yesterday we were discussing if the days of the horsepower war were over. Well it was no secret that the 2013 Viper, Corvette ZR1, Camaro ZL1 and many other super cars were all chasing Ford’s 650hp number that was promised to come with the new 2013 Shelby GT500. Sorry fellow Mustang Enthusiast, Ford didn’t deliver on the 650hp promise!
Here at Latemodel Restoration we are always happy when we find a project car to support in the Mustang community. Those of you who made it to Mustang Week last year saw the electric Fox body sitting in our booth. We helped donate some parts to the students at McMichael High School in Mayodan, North Carolina who built this unique project. It was great to see some Mustang enthusiasts in training working on a unique project. Recently, we got involved with another great group of guys and gals on a project we’re very pleased to be a part of – Project Fallen Hero.
Apparently Ford Racing got the “Gotta Have It Green” fever. Since the 2013 Mustang shares the same basic engine/drivetrain as a 2011-2012 Mustang, Ford Racing had a good pool of parts to throw at its new 2013 Mustang Project Car. The main power boost for the 2013 Mustang was the 2.3 Whipple supercharger kit featured in the 2011-2012 Ford Racing Mustang GT Supercharger Kit. Below, you will find a list of more of the FRPP parts that went into their build.
