To many projects with too little room. The basics, car was campaigned in World Challenge from 99-02 by Leo Capaldi Racing. I began re-building the car to run in USTCC and/or SCCA DP. Car is 95 percent complete with everything here to finish. The car is back to running now but needs some things finished up. As the car sits it has a 2.5 SVT motor with minor mods, we have 2 fresh 2.5 race motors also available as I will list below. Please email me personally and I can discuss what stills needs to be completed.

PLEASE EMAIL THE ADDRESS BELOW; PLEASE SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY!

-MTX 75 Trans with Quaife differential

Also, just to save the inevitable question - no, you most likely would NOT be able to turn this in to a "street car" as these were built without a VIN as a "body in white" if I remember right.

Hey, I'm serious... hell, I'm thinking of getting this one and putting a for sale sign on the Orange one. At least I won't be scared of scratching the paint on this one :biggrin:


Oh, can I make it street legal?

Registered in Phoenix, I doubt it. If you register it up in northern AZ, then MAYBE (someone said something about it being a "body in white" so it wouldn't have a VIN, which would make it a track only car).

Oh well, that's not really what I'm trying to do. It would be bad ass to go to the track and just go balls to the wall, something the Orange one will never live up too ;)

Not sure why anyone would want that car to be street legal.

It's one hell of a deal for a well built track car. That thing was totally stripped and a first class cage was installed.
That alone must have been big $.

GL with the sale of the sweetest race Cougar I've ever seen pics. of!

Buyer has backed out so I'm updating the post.

I have uploaded new pictures of the car and some of the spares at the following link.

New car has arrived and I am looking at all reasonable offers as I'm totally out of room. Email or call with offers. MUST MOVE ASAP!

Will sell the car the way it sits with a SVT 2.5 and all spares. $9,000

Race Motors also available seperatly
