The car's original C4 Select-Shift was replaced by an AOD transmission from an '89 Mustang. "The car now provides 23 miles to the gallon on the open road," John says, "with an average of 20 mpg over 1,500 miles with the A/C on."
Purists might be inclined to give John a hard time over his hidden modifications, but nothing has been done to this car that couldn’t be reversed in short order. "This is a great car to drive," John observes. "It is quiet, cool, and dependable."
It's a modern-day ride with the style and flare of a classic Mustang.
