This Backdraft Cobra came to us in bad need of a tuneup, so that's what it got.   We discovered leaking intake manifold gaskets, an incorrect power valve in the Holley carb, and general adjustments were needed on ignition timing and fuel delivery.

This 1967 Ford Mustang lived a full life, and eventually it was torn down for a restoration to repair rust and damage to the body.   Unfortunaltely, the shop doing the work couldn't complete the task, so the car came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for completion.    Our technicians inspected the car and after chatting with the owner, it was decided that much of the metalwork on the '67 could have been of a higher level of quality, so our team is working to bring the car to a higher level.

This 1967 Ford Mustang Convertible is powered by a small-block Ford V8 and has been a reliable crusier for the owner for years.    Time has taken a toll, however, as the car is now in need of some underside rust repairs and sheet metal replacement, so the V8 Speed & Resto Shop Crew is hard at work to bring it back to a solid car.

This cool 1966 Ford Galaxie 7-Litre just arrived in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for some restoration work.   We're excited to have a very cool and unusual Muscle Car in the shop to help bring back to its former glory.   These cars helped Ford launch the new 428 V8, and were touted as being the most powerful quiet car you could buy in '66.     We'll be posting a photo gallery of the project as well as videos along the way.

1969 Chevrolet Camaro ZR9 800 HP Pro-Touring Camaro Build Photo Gallery

 

We build lots of Camaros in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop, and each is different and unique.   
 
This is an interesting car for many reasons, beyond the 800+ HP Mast Motorsports supercharged engine. We're using a new Dynacorn body on this one that we bought from Classic Industries, so the entire car will be new. The owner had no real attachment to a particular car, he just wanted a Camaro.    The car features the best of everything... Detroit Speed suspension, Baer brakes, Forgeline wheels, Toyo tires, Hydratech brake booster,  MagnaFlow exhaust, and much more.
