“Reluctantly crouched at the starting line. Engines pumping and thumping in time. The green light flashes, the flags go up.” Cake’s song instantly brings to mind race cars and if you’re a Ford fan, then your dream of “churning and yearning,” “striving and driving and hugging the turns” can become a reality with this car. This particular 1973 Ford Mustang Trans Am was built by the famous Ed Hinchliff of Hinchliff Racing. The car boasts an impressive racing history, and with a bit of TLC, it’s ready to “go the distance” again.
All strategically referenced song lyrics aside, this 1973 Ford Mustang Trans Am does feature a heavily-modified 351 cubic-inch V8 by Jack Rousch. It also has a 4.11:1 locked rear end, Hurst shifter, and one of the last chassis that Kar Kraft designed for Ford during its factory-supported racing hay-day. The 1973 Ford Mustang Trans Am is available for purchase during the RM Auburn Spring 2019 Auction.
