This is the car of my dreams. I started this restoration myself 3 years ago. Along the way I had lots of headaches getting this car to what I wanted. This is not another Eleanor or Shelby replica. This car is a custom resto-mod. I have given it the name "Blue Boss", I even bought the license plate "blu boss". I painted the car using a Kandy paint Oriental Blue with silver stripes. I installed a heavy modified small block ford with an aftermarket block stroke to 427 CI. I had planned to make this ride a beast so I added a Procharger F1R Blower with a 3 core inter cooler.
Some of the features I added include: Concept One Pulleys, custom valve covers, Billet Specialties wire looms, Billet Specialties hose separators, custom aluminum radiator cover with embossed "Blue Boss", all stainless steel bolts, Aeromotive fuel system, A1000 pump, 100 microns pre filter and after filers, all stainless steel fuel hoses with stainless steel fittings, Aeromotive fuel pressure regulator, all stainless steel braided hoses going into carburetor, Lokar braided kick down cable, Lokar braided accelerator cable, Be Cool Radiator, new wiring hidden on chassis, Super Competition Hooker Headers, electric cut outs, functional side and rear exhaust, TCI Super Street Fighter C-6 Transmission, aluminum custom made 4inch drive shaft polished, Moser Wave Track Positive Differential With Forged 31 Spline Axels. In order to handle this kind of power I installed 20x15 rear Billet Specialties wheels with the optional spinner. With this set-up you need plenty of stopping power, so I installed 6 piston Wilwood Brakes with 14inch rotors. We used all braided stainless steel hoses for brake lines. We used a chrome booster, master cylinder, distribution block.
On the electrical side we hid the wiring as much a possible in order to have a clean look. I installed all LED lights through tail lights, reverse lights, license plate lights, front LED lights, running lights, angel eyes, turn signals on mirrors, they are all LED so the car can stand out in the crowd.
On the interior we are going to install aftermarket seats. The interior will be covered with Native American Bison Leather. The sound system will be very special, even though it is still in progress, but we have top of the line sound components. Focal Speakers, JL Audio W7 8inch subwoofer JL Audio XD 900amp, 128g 10in IPAD Tablet for the head unit. Lokar billet gas and brake pedal, Lokar billet hand brake with braided stainless steel brake sleeves, all new Phantom II gauges, Billet Specialties steering wheel matching the Billet Specialties wheels, custom leather wrap for steering wheel, custom center console, custom interior door panels, all interior will be covered with leather.
This whole car has been quite a challenge. Aside from what I have listed there is still a lot more. You have to see it to appreciate it.
