The guys and gals over at Southeastern Foxbodies (SEFB) set out on an ambitious project - build a Fox Body Mustang to raffle off for charity. We were able to interview SEFB members at Mustang Week 2012 and we quickly determined this was a project that would require a long road of hard work in order to have it ready for Mustang Week 2013. We built a great relationship with this Mustang club and when they approached us about helping sponsor their project we were honored to help!
This raffle benifited the following charities:
1. Juvenile diabetes research foundation
2. Victory Junction Gang Camp
3. Savannah's Drive
Save-A-Fox Made 341 hp and 345 tq
Trickflow 185cc CNC heads, Stage 2 Cam & intake manifold
TMI full upholstery with 03-04 Cobra style seats

Southeastern Foxbodies (SEFB) put together one amazing Fox Body Mustang. They took a Stang that was nothing to brag about and transformed it into the head-turning Pony you see on video. SEFB had fittingly named the project “Save-A-Fox” because when we originally saw this project at Mustang Week 2012, it was a bare shell sitting on a rotisserie. It was incredible to see this project come together and be ready for Mustang Week 2013; however, the most inspiring part of this project is that SEFB planned to raffle this Stang off for charity!
After meeting Southereastern Foxbodies at MW2012 we struck up a good working relationship. So when they approached us about helping donate to this project we honored. We were able to donate a whole host of Ford Racing, SVE and Ram parts to this project. Some of the these parts included:
There were a lot of companies that donated to this project – big thank you to everyone that put in time and donated parts!!!
Save A Fox made an impressive 341hp and 345 ft lb tq with he help of a 351 engine swap featuring Trickflow 185cc CNC heads, stage 2 cam and intake manifold. TMI upholstery came to the rescue of the interior with a pile of parts that included their 03-04 Cobra seats for Fox Body Mustangs, custom door panels and more. Topped off with a the new paint job, I didn’t even recognize it from the bare shell it was little over a year ago.
