SN95 Mustang Racer Ready to Fulfill Your Trans Am Dreams
If you’re looking for an affordable way to break into the world of racing, this Daytona-veteran Mustang is a great way to do it.
More than likely, you probably grew up dreaming about becoming a race car driver. Heck, we’ve all at least thought it about it once in our lives. Few of us, however, ever get to pursue that dream, sadly. But that’s not to say we can’t live out our racing fantasies later in life. There are plenty of affordable, older race cars out there for sale these days, and loads of vintage racing outfits providing a venue. So as you might imagine, the mere sight of this SN95 Mustang Trans Am racer at Bring a Trailer had us plotting a career change.
This Mustang racer is the real-deal too, having competed in the 1995 24 Hours of Daytona and numerous SCCA events over the years. Regardless, it also hasn’t seen the track in several years. And that’s a shame, really, because this thing’s got everything you need to go racing. Well, save for a pit crew, that is. Removable Mustang bodywork hides a nicely built chassis and plenty of impressive mechanical bits.
Power comes from a 358 cubic-inch Ford V8, which is backed up by a Saenz 5-speed manual transmission. Gearing is rather steep at 4.30, which means this bad boy is perfect for accelerating out of corners. The rest of the parts list is equally top notch, with goodies including Penske shocks, Tilton master cylinders, and a Richardson racing seat. Both the engine and transmission were rebuilt by the previous owner, at which time a host of new parts were installed as well.
From what we can tell, this vintage SN95 Mustang racer is ready to hit the track with zero to little work. And that makes it the perfect vessel if you’re looking to dip your toe in the world of motorsports without breaking the bank!
