The Mock 1

Mustang Monthly - - READERSÕALBUM -

We’re al­ways up for a good fa­ther/son build project story, and Jim­mey Wil­son of Port St. Lu­cie, Florida, cer­tainly has one in his ’70 Mus­tang Grande. The Mus­tang started life as a 302/au­to­matic combo when Jim­mey and his dad found it on eBay back in 2005. “It didn’t look hor­ri­ble in the pic­tures. As usual though, things al­ways look bet­ter in the sales ad. Fast-for­ward about 10 years and some help from some friends, you get what you see here,” Jim­mey ex­plains. The fin­ished project was dubbed the Mock 1 by Jim­mey’s dad and now fea­tures a 396ci Wind­sor V-8 pack­ing Scat in­ter­nals, topped with AFR 205 heads. MSD fires the en­gine, which is backed by a Tre­mec TKO trans. The color is Le Mans Sun­set Metal­lic, and Jim­mey bolted up a set of Coys C-67s at all four cor­ners. The Mock 1 makes 400 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque, which makes for a fun ride when Jim­mey takes his wife, Court­ney, and kids Erika and Can­non to car shows and cruise-ins. Jim­mey tells us fu­ture plans are for a fuel in­jec­tion con­ver­sion and some drag ra­di­als out back!
