Next Ford Shelby GT500 spied with big wheels and wide tires

  Next Ford Shelby GT500 spied with big wheels and wide tires The front tires are the same width as the GT350R.Our intrepid spy photographer was quick enough to grab decent shots of the lettering on the tires. What they reveal is that this Shelby is rocking 20-inch wheels up front with 305-mm tires. Those familiar with the GT350 will know it uses 19-inch wheels, both in standard and GT350R trim. If you look up tire sizes for both models, you'll also find that the normal GT350 uses smaller 295-mm tires up front, and the GT350R has 305-mm tires. We don't think this is a just special GT350R either, since the wing is absent, as is the extra-deep front splitter.

At the heart of that question is a more basic question: What makes a great street rod? The answer is a combination of objective stuff like build quality and attention to detail, and subjective things like personal taste. Great street rods and custom cars are the ones that combine the traditional elements that we all love with imaginative elements that set the car apart from the rest.

The look of the car had been developed by Doug and designer/illustrator Eric Brockmeyer. They envisioned a phantom woodie with a tapered curves rather than boxy angles. The exterior wood would be dark, used as an accent, the same way as a contrasting color. Even the modern components—like the seats, engine, and wheels—were designed with that style in mind.

In addition to working from Brockmeyer's renderings, Starks used concept illustrations from Brian Stupski at Problem Child Kustoms for various elements, including the openings on the custom aluminum hood. Modified stock headlights were frenched; Jesse Greening at Greening Auto Company machined the trim rings. The Alumicraft grille was shortened an inch. Legens Hot Rods created the clean replacement bumpers front and rear. Advanced Plating supplied the chrome plating and worked with Starks on the custom brass trim pieces.

Mychal Rogers and Brad Claussen helped with the bodywork and Tim Strange pitched in with cutting and rubbing the paint. Starks sprayed the wagon using R-M materials. The gray metallic paint is accented with pearl and low-key metalflake. All the woodgrain was hand-painted by Starks. Mercedes convertible top material was used for the roof insert.

Brockmeyer and Stupski both contributed design concepts for the unique artillery-style wheels, specially constructed by Jesse Greening. The custom chrome V-8 center caps complete the look, and the 18- and 20-inch size is perfectly proportioned to the large body. The wheels are paired with 295- and 245-series Nitto radial tires.

Doug's redone wagon rides on a Total Cost Involved mild Pro Street chassis. The wheelbase is stretched 2 inches longer than stock, and the rear 'rails are narrowed 2 inches on each side. The frontend includes a Mustang IIstyle setup, with 2-inch drop spindles to add to the wagon's aggressive stance.

The 9-inch rear is located by triangulated four-bars and runs 3.70:1 gears with a Currie limited-slip differential. QA1 coilovers and an antiroll bar at both ends add to the quality of the ride. A Flaming River power rack handles the steering shores, and Wilwood discs with a Scott's Hot Rods pedal assembly provide reliable braking.

Whether you consider Doug's 1935 Ford tin woodie elegantly aggressive or aggressively elegant, you've got to agree that everything about it fits the definition of a great street rod. Classic Instruments agreed when they selected the phantom wagon for their annual calendar and STREET RODDER agreed when we picked the car as a Painless Performance Products/STREET RODDER Top 100 winner at Hot August Nights.

Rare Mustangs and a Few Mopars Inhabit This Garage .
At the introductory meeting of the Roadkill Takes America group in Detroit, we learned that Doug, a Ford employee who helped fix Roadkill’s General Mayhem 1968 Charger, had a story all his own in the form of an amazing collection of cars and parts at his home south of Detroit. In the garage is a front-engine, slingshot dragster and two incredibly rare Mustangs. The first is a 1967 Mustang GT Fastback ordered in special silver with a 390ci V8 and four-speed. Next to that is a 1969 Mach 1 Mustang Super Cobra Jet. Both were local cars Doug was able to save© Ryan Brutt Ford-Muscle-sitting-with-Mopars-10.
