The cost of building this car in 2013 would be approximately $62,500 and the upgrades I added cost around $5000. I believe building a car like this today would cost around $70,000 or more by the time it was completed.

This BDR is in excellent shape as the pictures show. The Roush 427R is amazingly strong and powerful at 550 HP. This car runs as good as it looks. I took the more modern factory BDR and took it back to a more nostalgic 60s look which is how I think they should be. The wheels are 15” Pin Drive Vintage Wheels (knockoff) with Avon radial 15” tires and I added the Billboard lettering to complete the vintage racing look.The tires and wheels have less than 500 miles on them. I replaced the Roush valve covers / air cleaner assy with a VMS turkey pan and ford racing valve covers. The originals are included. Also included are the BDR owners manual and build receipts.
