A car with a big boot, enough horsepower to evade the law and the back road driving skills to back it up.
To some these cars may seem ungainly, ugly even. To Clint however, there’s an undeniable attraction to the early years of nascar and speedway.
“I just love seeing these big bodied cars racing, I’m not really an open wheeler fan,” he muses, “And I just love that door to door racing.”
Nowhere is this more evident than with Clint’s 1964 Ford Galaxie fastback. The stripped back and horsepower driven approach to this build speaks volumes of the man who built it. It’s a grass roots aesthetic that is both raw yet compelling.
“This car was inspired by my Dad,” he says, “He now races a 64 Mercury Comet in TCM (Touring Car Masters), I wouldn’t be doing any of this if it wasn’t for him.”
The raw, race inspired ethos of this car is obvious in all aspects. A naturally aspirated 440cu small-block feeds power to the 9-inch diff via a 6-speed Tremec manual transmission. It makes 810hp at the rear wheels.
