1969 Mustang American Iron race
Agent 47 Racing showed off their latest project this past month at the Fabulous Fords Forever show in Southern California, a 1969 Ford Mustang that will compete in NASA’s American Iron racing series. The car, dubbed the Harbinger X2, is a follow-up to their initial road-going 1969 Harbinger Mustang that the company built a few years ago. As you can see from the photos the new car is still very much in progress, although a company representative tells us it should be ready to go and out on track by early next month.


Unlike the initial Harbinger Mustang, which was based on a fiberglass Dynacorn body, the X2 is a genuine 1969 Mustang, albeit highly modified. The existing frame rails are used, but a fully integrated roll cage extends into the engine bay where a brand new Ford Racing Boss 302 crate motor has been installed. A unique airbox co-developed between Agent 47 and K&N feeds air through the single throttle body, and a custom exhaust system exits just past the passenger door. The exposed front end also reveals Agent 47′s SLA suspension system, with a setup close to their current SN95 Mustang race car. While not pictured, the Harbinger X2 will also get custom fender flares and bodywork inspired by the Trans-Am Mustangs of the late 1960s and early 1970s.

    Do you have a spam problem on this website; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; we have developed some nice procedures and we are looking to exchange strategies with other folks, be sure to shoot me an e-mail if interested.

    Very nice car but not legal for any type of vintage racing, except maybe that nasa class mentioned. I would use an old circle track late model howe or left hander chassis, set the mustang body down on it and install a road racing [symmetrical] suspension conversion. This is being done with many older circle track chassis now a days and you got yourself cheap fast and good fun. Best part is, it’s all off the shelf parts except maybe the old mustang body and you can just buy the outer skin from dynacorn and use that instead of chopping up a good mustang to do this. oh um, mater of fact I’m doing that very thing right now haha, except with a 1966 mustang notch back chassis. Later after I’m done I’ll convert it over to fastback body. It will be virtually just like this car except for the year and the ford crate engine and the entire thing will be kept under 10k cost as I fortunately have all the needed skills and don’t have to hire everything out and get bilked like all you rich boys do. Want a super cheap but state of the art front frame setup for a car like this? You can buy the entire front frame rails ready to weld on for 739.00. Suspension to go on it is not much, it is all affordable and you end up with a super quick car with proper front suspension. link >> https://www.howeracing.com/p-7861-rt-road-race.aspx
