600HP 11-SECOND FORD LTD SLEEPER – VIDEO

IF YOU want to go fast it helps to start with a light car. Obviously Daniel Shaw missed the memo! His ’78 Ford LTD land barge weighs in at 4350lbs and runs consistent elevens down the quarter thanks to a home-built 408-cube Cleveland pumping out 600hp. It runs a hydraulic roller cam and 12.4:1 comp on e85 juice. It’s backed up by a C4 and nine-inch combo.

We checked out the car at the Ford Forum Nats a couple of weekends ago where Daniel was racing the LTD for the first time.
