Car description

Ford's 5.0 liter V8 needs no introduction, that uses a new Holley 600CFM carburetor for maximum reliability. Borrowed from a 2000 Explorer, the torquey small block remains a great runner and is virtually indestructible when properly maintained, so they wisely left it pretty stock and just dressed it up with chrome and polished accents. Lots of fresh parts are there, including the chromed brake booster and dual master cylinder, bright valve covers, a dual-filtered air cleaner, and a big Griffin aluminum radiator with electric fans that keep it cool. Shorty headers feed a dual exhaust system, which snakes past the Explorer's AOD 4-speed automatic transmission that was rebuilt in 2018 and around the rebuilt rear end (2015) full of highway-friendly modern gears. Handling is sharper than you'd expect, because it also carries a Fatman front end clip and adjustable air shocks out back, along with power front disc brakes and power rack-and-pinion steering. Bright American Racing Torque Thrust wheels are an appropriate choice for a hybrid like this, and they carry BFGoodrich T/A performance radials at all four corners.
