Need for Speed 1969 Torino GT,

Recommended Posts

I am currently building a kitbash 69 torino from the need for speed movie, starring Aaron Paul.  It consists of AMTs 69 torino cobra kit with the chassis from the  AMT 69 fairlane, resin wheels and 5.0 Coyote from the Revell 2014 Mustang gt.  The movie car had an LS engine (https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1969-ford-torino-gt-2/) but we only see the top of the intake in the movie which i can use as an excuse to use a the 5L.   The interior is a mish-mash of 69 torino with the 66 Fairlane floor along with the steering wheel from the Revell ford coupe.

Not sure about Wilwood, but if you have look around the interwebs for some Hobby Design disc brakes they make some nice aftermarket sets

Another update, I managed to find the correct Torino GT grille from a glue bomb on stealbay and got the interior mocked up.  The engine will use the headers from an AMT dodge pro-street kit.  I also added the torino GT gas cap which the original Torino cobra kit did not have.
