We let the secret out last week about Adam’s secret one-off, bespoke hand-crafted project car that we know nothing about. As much as we would like to tell you more we have been sworn to secrecy now, so don’t ask us – ask Adam. With the (not so) secret project car out of the workshop, we have grabbed a few more pictures with some one-off bespoke parts being made just for her.
The Secret Project Car
Adam is also using some castings from his very own (privately owned) moulds for his Eleanor kits. However, we do know that this is not going to be an Eleanor. As Adam says; ‘I have done that (Eleanor) to death, with us being one of the first to do it. I didn’t really want to do another one. Instead this car really will be a one-off, bespoke and hand crafted car’.
For those with an eye for detail; something subtle is happening to the windscreen area, the standard moulding clips have now gone. Adam has something hidden away, which will be a first and pretty special for this car. Who knows, maybe we could start a trend?
We will bring you more as we go along on the ‘SPC’, or Secret Project Car as things take shape.
We have been asked about ‘The Onion’ Mustang by a customer who popped into the shop. Well we can say that the build at home is coming along nicely. The interior has had the ‘Fatmat Magamat’ fitted up to the firesfall and some way up to the cowl area.
The engine has had a colour passivated Serpentine system now fitted, along with matching coil bracket and timing pointer.
The HT leads are ThunderVolt with the retaining clips inverted as they look better. The headers are midlength JBA 1650 ceramic coated which fit nicely around the Borgeson steering.
The bodywork has a had a little treat as well, chrome plated side pod grills.
We have been tasked with a six pot engine rebuild. It’s not something we do on a regular basis, but sometimes if the money is right we will take the project on.
Even the rocker covers are dismantled to be cleaned thoroughly.
Almost done and starting to look a lot better with a little hint of Ford blue paint added.
A big thank you from us regarding the supportive comments via the blog, emails and personal conversations that we have seen, and also had at the yard regarding our point last week for us being work ‘selective’. It wasn’t an easy decision, we have a pristine reputation that we are proud of, and we need to think carefully about what we will deal with going forward.
Have a good Easter (next week) from all of us at Mustang Maniac, don’t eat too much chocolate, drink beer instead!
