Thin Mint – 6-Second Mustang

October 11th, 2017

This brilliantly hued Mustang is much more than just a pretty face. It manages to post consistent 6-second elapsed times and win races in the process.

To answer the obvious question: The paint job is a mixture of a seventies Ford Mustang Mach 1 color and (of all things) an Aston Martin shade. I’m not sure whether I like it or not but it is certainly unique.

I definitely like what has been done under the hood. The best thing that can happen to a small coupe is a huge engine. The Thin Mint has a 5.4-liter modular unit from a Lincoln Navigator. What goes great with a truck motor in your engine bay? This one has a 78-millimeter turbocharger (12-pounds of boost) and it seems to be working fine. The bottom end is stock and the transmission is a 4R70W automatic.

Lot’s of great drag racing action on this one. Have a gander for yourself
