Mechanically this car was completely taken apart. The original 351 Windsor received a complete rebuild by a notable Ford Expert. The rebuild included being bored.030 over, installing upgraded pistons, crankshaft, lightened flywheel, modern Roush Heads and special camshaft with roller lifters and special valve springs to bring the rev's to 6,800 RPM. Carburetion is by way of a Holley through a Edelbrock dual plane aluminum manifold and included is a more aggressive Barry Grant Demon 750 CFM with mechanical secondaries and electric choke. All mated to a Tremec TKO 600 5-speed close ratio gearbox, replacing the original Ford "top loader" transmission. The power is put the road via the original, but completely rebuilt Ford 9" narrowed rear end, utilizing new limited slip 3.52 gears. Using a dynamiter, this car has been carefully tuned to produce an impressive 440hp on 93 octane. While the entire drive train has seen a thorough and tasteful updates, so have the rest of the systems. The cooling has been updated with a new oversized aluminum radiator and electric fan, all custom designed and built. The fuel system includes a high output electric fuel pump and re-sealed original gas tank. The suspension has also seen many modern improvements such as rebuilt original Bilstein shocks and 4 new springs; fully adjustable lower control arms (replacing the original Fiat Truck derived units) and adjustable rear shocks. Braking comes from the original but rebuilt (on all four corners including vacuum assist) Girling Jaguar/Volvo Disc Brakes. The steering is provided through a Peugeot 504 steering rack, which has also been rebuilt. All electrical systems in this car are completely up to date with new harness to replace the old Simca Harness and newly restored gauges completed by Palo Alto Speedometer. The original AC system is not rebuilt and included in the sale but is not currently installed. The original Alfa Romeo heater core and control systems have been replaced and work as originally designed. All of this is sitting on new 15" Dayton wire wheels.

Condition wise this car resembles an excellent driver cosmetically, and a fully restored car mechanically. All glass is present and crack or fade free, as is the rubber trim throughout the car. The top is in good condition overall besides one small tear near the left front snap near the door jamb which shows a very small tear. The paint is excellent throughout with very minor blemishes that could be found on the rockers from being enjoyed. Otherwise the paint is consistent and shows very well. The interior is excellent as well having been barely used since being replaced in 1980 in proper trim. No cracks or issues with the dash and all trim pieces and accessories are present. A keyless entry and aftermarket sound system has been tastefully integrated for modern convenience.

Overall this is an excellent opportunity to acquire a nicely updated Italian/American hybrid that will not disappoint. As a turnkey opportunity for any enthusiast or collector, offers welcome please inquire with any additional interest.. Michael Runnalls WeBe Autos Ltd.
