Kennelly’s E-type and Mustang on the rollers

We’ve had two of Paul Kennelly’s race cars on the rolling road recently. I beautifully prepared Jaguar E-type and a 1965 Mustang notch back. The E-type is more of a pure circuit racer where as the Mustang still has an interior and some creature comforts. The perfect tool for Tour Auto perhaps.

The Mustang is finally in one piece. It’s been a lot of work in a short amount of time but it is just about finished. It has an MOT now, has been registered with the DVLA and has been inspected for its FIA HTP papers. It will be going on the rolling road today. It has been a challenging build but I think the results are fantastic. Less than 6 weeks to turn this one around.

1965 Ford Mustang race car build

One of our regular customers has brought us his 1965 Ford Mustang. We received the car as a shell and a box of bits and we’ve been assembling it over the past couple of weeks. Most of the parts were there and ready to bolt on, some we’ve had to look for. The car will be an FIA race car so will be fitted with FIA approved equipment and built to the specifications set out in the homologation papers. The car is nearing completion and will be getting painted shortly.
