If I remember right, the car had a 514 Lima and C6, pounded up Woodward Avenue on a regular basis, and clicked off 10s at will!

What a blast that car must have been! Didn't they say in the article that when you nailed it, that car went every ways but straight!

Needless to say I went elseware for lunch.
A very late one at that.
SO......when the FoMoCo engineers were done playing with Quicksilver and the die was cast for the reintroduction of the Muscle car via the 82 Mustang GT, the car was ordered to the crusher. Jack Roush could not bear the thought of that "toy" getting destroyed and when he told Bob Glidden of it's impending future a deal was struck. Bob lobbied with the FoMoCo execs to give him the car so he could use it as a continuous testing platform for up and coming SVO 385 series parts and a good training car for his young (soon to be race car drver) boys. HA! That car was plated so faster than you could say Quicksilver. Billy and Rusty began driving the car to high school and street racing it. NoS eventually found it's way onto the car ( )and they made a few bucks with it. One Saturday they had it at IRP and made over 50 passes on it. Bob had the track for the day doing testing with his Pro Stock.
The car was to be returned to FoMoCo eventually, butnever was. The Gliddens sold it to a street racer in Richmond Indiana and he raced it a lot in the Tri state area (Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana. Eventually it was sold again and wound up in Tenn as a bracket car. Last repor that I had was that the car now resides in Florida and is undergoing a retoration to it's original state. The plans are for it to go to Don Garlits or Floyd Garretts museum when finished. I have always tried to keep up with this car because it is the Mustang II that FOrd SHOULD have built!

The Car was built by a guy called
Joe Ruggirello, It had a Jack Roush built '73 Super Cobra Jet Stroked to 505 in. C6 w/4000 stall convertor was street driven & ran 10's?
I have the mag somewahere, but theres a reprint in the book 'High performance Mustang II's'
