Weâ€™re rockinâ€™ and rollinâ€™ on ShockR, the â€™89 Mustang coupe that weâ€™re building in support of the RPM Act. While we are a little bit behind schedule (SEMAâ€™s coming in less than 4 months!), itâ€™s just about ready to head to Pettyâ€™s to get painted, while our in-house trimmer Rod Schlosser is crafting a truly bitchinâ€™ interior setup. If youâ€™re new to the car, we welded in a complete floorpan from a 2019 Mustang to make it easier to install the running gear and interior from the â€™19 into the â€™89, and weâ€™re turning the car into a 2-seater that should really drop jaws at every show the car goes to.
The drivetrain includes a turbocharged 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder and 10-speed automatic from the 2019, and about 80 % of the interior pieces including all the electronic trickery and gauges, including the complete dash. Itâ€™s starting to look like a real car now, and we canâ€™t wait to see it painted! Stay tuned, because we have an entire television show scheduled just on the car and the research that weâ€™re going to show, about the carbon footprints on this car and a typical electric car (EV). True to the carâ€™s name, it should â€œshockâ€ you what weâ€™re learning here!
