Completely original, as last raced by Robby Gordon for Roush Racing and then parked at the end of the 1991 season.  Passenger seat and belts added by Roush at end of season for Ford executive and sponsor promotional rides.

Currently undergoing mechanical freshening of engine and chassis, replacement of hoses/fuel bladder, and a complete frame and suspension NDE/crack inspection/repair in preparation for Historic Trans-Am/IMSA GTO racing in 2009.  The original 1991 as-last-raced body panels, exterior paint and graphics, interior carbon fiber panels/dash, ductwork/sheet metal, and all other components are being preserved to the last race of the season condition and not “restored” to new or replaced.
