"Because the Shelby clones are so popular, and having had an
original myself (SFM6S506), I felt I want something a little different.
Something you wouldn't come across at every car show or cruise.
I then saw what was claimed to be the #1 prototype car built for Jerry
Titus on Dream Car Garage, and then later seeing this car come up for
sale. Now not being able to afford $200K for a car, I knew "that
was it". That is what I wanted.
So I started doing a little research, and that would be very little
because there just wasn't that much info. out there. In late 2004 I came
across an and original S-Code, 4 speed car. It was in pretty bad shape
but I felt it was something I could work with, so I purchased it.
Upon striping it down I found it would need floor pans and some other
minor metal work. When that was complete, I took it to the painter,
where he painted and sealed it. Then the real work began. It has been a
little over 3 years until that stage you see it now.
I originally planned on doing some open track events but not too sure
about that yet. I really enjoy attending car shows and events at this
time. Plus, I love just sitting around talking about cars.

completion, I have about 700 miles on it. The car puts out about 340 h/p
at the rear wheels. In the next few months I am planning on having
the heads worked and a custom built 750 carb. I would like to get
about 380 hp at the rear wheels. We'll see!
