This Factory Original S&H Unit, one of two that Mike owns, has a 351 Cleveland Cobra-Jet engine with 4-bolt mains and closed chamber 4V heads, a C-6 TCI transmission, and a 3.55 nodular 9-inch posi rear-end. Mike says when he found it, the car was a basket case and had been in a storage garage for 10 years. The original 400 was blown and half-disassembled (see below). The only nice part of the car, Mike says, was the interior. Everything inside was perfect except for a rip in the driver's seat and bad carpet. The car has bucket seats and center console with shifter on the floor. Mike found a factory build sheet under the rear seat which documents the car's authenticity.

Mike says the car came with a ton of extra parts that the previous owner had purchased during the 10 years that he had the car: two NOS quarter panels; NOS fenders; three pairs of used doors and three trunk lids; moldings of all kinds; headlight housings; and even some parts from a wrecked Limited Production S&H Unit in Indiana. Mike worked day and night for 6-7 weeks to put the car together in time to make it to the Carlisle, PA All Ford Nationals. He only had 12 miles on the car before he drove it over 120 miles to Carlisle without a problem.
