jack morris1969 ford mustangWell it looks like Jack Morris still has a little Detroit muscle in him after retiring from the baseball and the Tigers. This is his stunning custom 1969 Ford Mustang you see photos of. Everything about the custom Mustang is picture perfect, I absolutely love the custom wheels and custom paint job. Neal's Custom Metal transformed his vision of a dream car into a real thriving piston pumping muscle car Mustang. Jack Morris said he "wanted something truly unique that pushed the Pro Touring envelope. He wanted a big motor, big brakes, and big tires in a car that could be driven long distances on the freeway and at the track."

I think the final product not only impressed him, but his baseball fans and Mustang muscle car fans around the world as well. You don't see muscle cars so perfectly formed out of sheet metal, this is no easy job. Originally everything on the classic Mustang was all rotted beyond repair, only the roof skin could be salvaged. Believe it or not there is no unibody structure left on this car, they cut ut it all out, and built a custom chromoly tube-frame chassis in its place.

After acquiring a an aluminum Windsor block from Dart, Morris sent the engine to Roush Racing for the transfer event into a 454ci monster that makes 622 horsepower. They used AFR 225cc cylinder heads and a COMP 248/254-at-.050 solid roller cam. To help keep the power to the ground they used a 9-inch rearend fitted with a Detroit Truetrac differential, transmission is a manual Tremec T56.
