About “The Fox Rod”

I bought this car in October of 04', one owner and bone stock right down the the exhaust and air silencer. I drove it as is untill it was involved in an accident in which the at fault driver had no insurance. I debated rebuilding the car and I am glad I did because although not pecfect Its been one of my most favorite Mustangs.

About “Spring Edition”

This was a limited edition HHR I ordered the day GM released the orders. It was 1 of the first 20 off the line. There are only 2300 made.

 

Specs for “The Fox Rod”

5.0L V8
5 speed manual

Specs for “Spring Edition”

The only difference between the Spring Edition and off the lot HHR's is the Red color, 2-tone interior, special wheels and all the LT trim. Options available were leather & sunroof. Both of which I decided against!
