The builder of the rather poor attempt at a 383 was Engine Master Aust, in Albury.
The new builder is Vintage Racing Service's, owner has extensive experience in V8 Touring Car Engine building with GRE & HRT.
Currently builds some of the fastest Vintage Mustangs n Windsor powered race cars in the country.
He also has a very accurate dyno.

The plan is to get her a more modern Pro Touring look....n a facelift....on the outside...with Gen2 style stripes in charcoal color n Gen2 painter bullet mirrors and maybe a custom front spoiler.

Then a bit of a tune up n clean up some bits n wiring under the bonnet....
Inside will be a revamp of the standard interior door trims.....deciding wether itll be DeLuxe door trims or full custom door trims...., fit a 2015 Gen5 Console with a custom top panel,..Electric window switches n controls...and fit an interior light/map light in the hood lining..
And possibly a little tweek with a highlight added to the seats.

The outside will get a fresh look,...But im gonna do the new stripes on a vinyl wrap,...so worse case I can peel it off if I dont like it...

The interior will be easy as I hate the standard door trims and big chunky armrests....

I also hate the old console,...I really want an armrest amount other things,...Ive already got the 2015 Gen5 console. n DeLuxe door trims...


Im ready for a change...the spoilers are going to be my big challenge,...
