Tim called into the shop expressing interest in building up his XA coupe with late model running gear. After getting the coupe stripped and media blasted, it revealed a host of previous substandard body repairs. Extensive sheet metal work has been carried out to restore the body.
Currently under construction, some of the coupes new body features include, shaved door handles, modified drip rails and removal of the original fuel cap. Drive train consists of a 5.4L Modular V8 engine, Tremec 5 speed gearbox and a 4 link, coil over mounted Ford 9” diff. An RRS macpherson strut front suspension assembly and power steering rack have been fitted.

I can’t speak highly enough of the team at Rad Rides.  From the first time of walking through their door with a massive project, there knowledge and willingness to adapt to varies time and financial hurdles has been amazing. I couldn’t have managed this project without them.
