Tokyo Drift : Nissan powered ‘67 Mustang to appear in F&F

This ought to get some blood flowing on both sides of the fence. The new movie “Fast & the Furious: Tokyo Drift,” due to be released on June 16, 2006 will feature a ‘67 Mustang, powered by a Nissan RB26DETT engine, a twin-turbo straight-six right out of the amazing Skyline GT-R. There was also a ‘Stang powered by a 430-cube Ford small-block used for some of the shots on set.

When the two were lined-up on the dragstrip, the GT-R powered pony ran the quarter mile in 13.32 seconds and 109.83 MPH - over 1.2 seconds quicker and 13 MPH faster than the Ford V8. I’m sure that left some blue-oval purists hanging their heads. I suppose I would be OK with either of them in my garage.
