Eaton, Edelbrock To Unveil 785 Hp ‘Restomod’ 1965 Mustang

Crafted by The RoadsterShop, "Vapor" will be revealed at Eaton's SEMA booth, and will showcase Edelbrock's E-Force Supercharged 5.0 Coyote motor.

eaton1024“Vapor” a 785-hp restomod ‘65 Mustang Fastback crafted by award-winning builder RoadsterShop will be unveiled at the Eaton booth No. 229430 at the 2016 SEMA Show at 9:30 a.m. on Nov. 1.

Presented in conjunction with two of the aftermarket’s preeminent brands— Eaton and Edelbrock – the fittingly named “Vapor” is derived from the only remnants visible after this supercar passes by, say the companies.

Fitted under Vapor’s hood is Edelbrock’s newest and most powerful E-Force supercharged Ford 5.0 liter Coyote crate engine. The low profile supercharger design incorporates Eaton’s TVS (Twin Vortices Series) rotors with 4 lobes and a 160-degrees of twist, which optimizes airflow and produces consistent peak efficiency. The motor produced 785 hp and 660 ft-lbs. of torque at the flywheel when tested at the Edelbrock dyno facility. Its 9.5:1 compression ratio generates safe and reliable supercar performance that still runs on premium pump gas, according to the two companies.

“We are excited to showcase our most technologically advanced and powerful E-Force supercharged Ford 5.0 liter Coyote crate motor in possibly the finest 65 Mustang build we have ever seen,” said Steve Whipple, vice president of sales and marketing at Edelbrock. “The unbelievable craftsmanship and cutting-edge design of Vapor make us proud to be associated with this project.”

Vapor also features Eaton‘s Detroit Truetrac 5-pinion rear end designed with a scalloped flange for reduced rotating mass and the perfect fit in high horsepower performance applications where extreme strength and durability are critical, Eaton says.

“Eaton’s engineering expertise with our supercharger and differentials resulted in the products you see on the Vapor,” said Amy Kartch, director, aftermarket sales, Eaton Vehicle Group. “Having a presence on such an exciting vehicle reaffirms Eaton’s technical capabilities in providing products for the automotive aftermarket that are designed to handle high-performance applications.

Accentuating its lines, the car is presented in a sport classic gray and black paint scheme that is both menacing yet understated, the companies say. Vapor is the result of a two-year build, commissioned by a Southern California-based enthusiast and collector, who conceived the project and oversaw its significant design and production details.

The Roadster Shop team dedicated countless hours, precision painstaking craftsmanship and innovative design and production of bespoke components in the development of this one-of-a-kind car. Their work included a ground up chassis and suspension design, custom metal work, design/engineering and production of one off CNC-machined parts, complete wiring, assembly and painting. Interior and upholstery was completed by Palm City, Florida-based Avant Garde Designs.
