Greg like many of us, has always had an extreme love for Foxbodies, Not too long ago (and lucky for him) he was dedicated to buying one before the market went all crazy after recent Barrett Jackson auctions and the hype across social media platforms. He began his search and in the summer of 2017 he stumbled across this white 1988 Mustang GT and he opted to go look at it right away. Funny enough I personally remember seeing this car posted on social media by a Dech enthusiast. For Greg he couldn’t stop thinking about it after he viewed the car and he made the right decision by going back and buying it a few days later. Yes Greg, you beat me to it!
Believe it or not this is the first car that Greg has ever owned, and we could all imagine the excitement for him as we all had (and some still do) every time we bring a new Foxbody home. Greg has recently just turned 20, and is in University currently studying automotive engineering, and has been into the cars since he was born as it runs in the family. Being a fellow Canuk, he’s always known about Dech Mustangs, but never thought he would get a chance to own one.
From the outside you would believe that Greg has a typical Mustang GT that has extremely low miles with just under 70,000 km original, sporting all original paint, and it’s virgin 5.0 5 speed. In addition, the car came with the factory upgraded 3.08:1 ratio rear end and is sitting on a beautiful set of Roh ZR6 wheels. But beyond the basics this car has had several very typical Dech upgrades which include:
- DECH Springs
- DECH Koni Adjustable Shocks
- DECH Nylatron Shift Knob
- DECH typical MOMO Monte Carlo Steering Wheel
- Recaro Driver seat
Although not outfitted with the widely noticed Dech Aero Kit, and not uniquely numbered, this car has some of the fundamentals of a ” DECH Street Package” and is a fine example of a well kept, low mileage, rust free Canadian piece of history. Overall plans for the car are a little more suspension work and some engine modifications Greg claims. What a great first car Greg, enjoy it!
A genuine DECH Motorsport-modified example powered by an Active Engines 5.0L V8 mated to a 5-speed manual Borg Warner T5 World Class gear box. What makes this car extra special is that it was originally purchased by Derek Hanson himself -the founder of Dech Motorport. The car was fitted with the famous aero body kit along with suspension performance upgrades and serial numbered #005.
Additional modifications include:
- Dech Aero kit
- Dech Springs
- Dech G-Load Brace
- Dech Grabbers
- 3.55 rear end
- Koni yellow struts and shocks
- Wilwood front brakes
- Recaro seats
- Dech Nylatron shiftknob
- Momo steering wheel
- Simmons 3 piece wheels
This car is filled with history and although not a trailer queen, this car has been built, driven, raced, loved and even neglected at some stages but here she is looking sweet and turning heads. Steve acquired the car four years ago.
After almost 20 years since it’s closure and not much other than an old geocities website there was not much left in terms of information relating to DECH cars. Now with Foxbodies becoming even more rare in good condition Infamous from The Infamous Project has been working with Derek and Peter Hanson to provide up to date information relating to DECH Motorsport. The website will be a work in progress and it truly relies on the enthusiasts and current DECH owners to engage and help provide information and content. Although DECH has closed its doors long ago, the aim of this website is to tribute, honor and share information, products and enthusiasm!
Working closely with Team Hanson, Infamous has created a centralized spot to not only remember what DECH was but to make key components available to the public in the future. From the Dech Info page you will be able to gain first hand information to archived articles, consumer orientation releases, photo galleries and even a Dech Registry page. With your help this website will be populated with as much information as possible.
Infamous’ 1993 Coupe is a fine example of how DECH products and a vision can transform the look of your Mustang. With only 25,000 original km’s on the clock, this car was nicknamed the “unicorn” to be a modern throwback to the 1990’s a showcase a true DECH Foxbody Mustang. You can view the complete build summary of the car on The Infamous Projects website. This car features the last known genuine DECH aero kit to come out of the original molds.
We need your help! In efforts to centralize the database of all known DECH cars we encourage you to submit your cars through the certification program in case you are unsure if your car is a real or a clone. Regardless we would like to see all examples of DECH cars to create a repository that is accessible by the public to share and showcase these amazing rides. You can see our current list of those in the DECH Registry.
