1968 Bullitt 390 cui Replica
Kari Möro from Finland has
finished this BULLITT replica with a 390 cui engine after a long restoration
process that we followed here in Europe for more than 2 years.
The result is
better than perfect, a shiny Bullitt with a few extra performance touches.
"When I bought
this Mustang 2005 I had a very clear vision what it should be when it is
ready and here it is now. There are too many little details to mention, but
I have planned this car since 1981.
This 1968 Mustang was
originally a C - code car with C4 - transmission, but Kari put a 390 cid FE
engine coupled with a 4 - speed top loader trans in the framework. The
rear axle is a Currie 9" with 3.70:1 ratio and traction lock.
Suspension is dropped
1" and subframe connectors added for extra stability. The wheels are
obviously Vintage Wheel Works v45 17X7".
For extra airbreathing capability Kari put on a PG Demon 750 cfm double
pumper carb and let the fumes exit through an 2,5" exhaust system that
includes FPA ceramic coated tri-y headers and
Flowmaster Deltaflow 40 - series mufflers
The original body color is
unknown because this is a special paint car without a color code on the tag, but
now it is the true and only Highland Green (R-code color from 1968)
A shiny sample of a
long-term vision becoming finally reality
interior color is still black, front seats are
´87 Corvette seat with black custom upholstery specially
made to match original rear seat upholstery. For the steering wheel I used
Motolita and they made it as custom work for my car.
Special thank´s to Mikko
Huttunen for pro class body work"
