Gearheads, buckle up for this 1970 Mustang. This massive muscle machine has been slightly tinkered by either a damn fine mechanic or a complete lunatic.
This 1970s Mustang has been officially pumped with a V8 Sherman tank engine. The original design of the engine was built in the 1940s with intentions of using it in the war.
The V8 Sherman Tank engine consists of (get ready) a 60 degree cylinder angle, 5.4 inch bore and 6.0 inch stroke, a billet crank, shaft driven overhead cams, four valves per cylinder, and dual magnetos.
Oh, and did I mention that by itself the Sherman Tank flexes 500 horsepower and 1050 lbs. of torque (before modifications—this one is rumoured to have 1000hp)?
