Pacific Roadster makes available to you a very affordable, easy-to-build 427 roadster replica based upon the ever-popular Mustang 5.0 as a donor vehicle. Our goal is to provide you with a high quality, high-performance roadster for less impact on your wallet. We urge you to compare our prices and closely compare our quality and our commitment to you.

If you don't find an answer to each of your questions here, give us a call!

Pacific's 427 Roadster is designed to enable you to employ a Mustang 5.0 donor car for cost reduction and straighforward assembly. You can use the engine, gearbox, driveshaft, suspension componentry, steering, radiator, pedal assembly, wiring and other components from a Ford 5.0 Mustang.

The coachwork

Your roadster body from Pacific comes to you pre-assembled in one piece, regardless of which stage of kit you specify. This means the doors, hood, and trunk are already hung and adjusted. The cockpit, trunk and inner fenders are glassed in. Fiberglass panels are fitted with inner liners for a more attractive, "factory-finished" appearance.

The robust steel cowl brace under the dash supports the doors, steering column and windshield, and is bolted to the frame. You aren't required to do any fiberglass work or drilling or riveting of body panels. For bigger drivers: Pacific's body is specially engineered to allow taller and/or wider drivers to fit comfortably. Don't spring for a longer-wheelbase 427 roadster replica without first checking out Pacific's 427 roadster.

Pacific's chassis

Like the original, your Pacific Roadster frame boasts 4" round steel tube main ladder rails. We employ multiple crossmembers and triangulated bracing for extra strength and stiffness on our 90" wheelbase chassis. Your Pacific Roadster chassis comes complete with all brackets and mounts. Front upper control arms and ball joints are included, as well as rear adjustable upper control arms.

Suspension

You'll use the 8.8" Ford Mustang 4-link rear end. We provide you with adjustable upper control arms and adjustable coilover shocks to provide you with fine tuning control of your rear suspension. The front-end employs Mustang lower control arms and custom tubular uppers with adjustable coilover shocks. You can use the Mustang rack & pinion steering setup in your choice of power or manual configuration.

You have a choice of three roadster packages:

Basic Roadster Kit
Your price starts at $7,495 USD
