Mustang GT 2+2 Fastback
“Ford sent two identical Highland Green Mustang Fastbacks with sequential VINs to Warner Bros for the film, both were extensively modified by famed Hollywood car-builder (and racer) Max Balchowsky.
The script called for a 10+ minute chase scene involving the now-famous jumps down San Francisco’s steep streets, so Balchowsky fitted heavy-duty front springs and reinforced the shock towers. A stronger anti-roll bar was installed in front, as well as Koni shock absorbers, and engine power was increased thanks to ported heads and carburettor/ignition upgrades.
The Fastbacks were both running S-code 390 cubic inch (6.4 litre) V8s with 4-speed manual transmissions, and they had their fog lights removed, as well as the “Pony” grill badge, Mustang lettering, and GT badges. A set of American Racing Torq Thrust wheels completed the look of the car – interestingly the same wheels can still be ordered brand new, almost 50 years later.
In stock trim, the 390 cubic inch V8 was capable of 320 hp and 427 lbf.ft of torque, and could do the quarter mile in ~13 seconds with trap speeds of 105 mph.”
