Latemodel Restoration’s latest build: the SVE Pace Car – Project 777. This killer S-197 was first fortified with plenty of suspension and rim/tire upgrades before it saw a ton of track lapping on many of the Texas road courses.

By today’s standards, Fox Bodies, and most muscle cars for that matter, aren’t considered safe. No airbags, no ABS, questionable seat belts, but hey: they had padded steering wheels, right? Well, having them, and having them stay in place during a crash is a different story as you’ll see.
