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.
