No one will ever mistake this 1965 Ford Mustang fastback restomod for anything stock. But for the few who don\'t see the paint, the wheels, or any of the other new aggressive touches, the race-ready fuel-injected 520ci V8 will teach them a lesson to take notice.
You are looking at a full fresh build that was completed in 2019 and has gone less than 500 miles since then. They started with one of the most desirable pony cars around - a first-year fastback - and they turned it into a true dark horse. After all, that metallic gray is deeper than even the Eleanor coupes, and the sleek black upper section seems to absorb the sunlight (that goes double for the cool matte black on the cowl hood!) While the crisp lines of the Mustang are used to divide the two colors, this also has a vibrant green pinstripe to make sure this has a well-defined border. The paint is amazing, but it also takes an excellent body for this kind of award-worthy look. With such precision panels, and most of the trim deleted, it brings a whole new dimension to the original Mustang\'s lines we\'ve never seen before. The competition-style torque thrust wheels add some Bullitt-level flair, but when you see how wide the rear ones are, you know this is a whole different kind of cool.
A fresh build means a clean interior. The full black package is tidy, and there are comfort upgrades like a tilt steering column, power steering, and cup holder center console. There\'s even an AM/FM/CD/XM stereo with Bluetooth. But what you really notice about this interior are all the upgrades that makes it a competition-ready machine. The rear seat has been removed for the tubbed rear end and to help fit the full race cage. The front seats are now modern Sparco racing buckets with G-Force five-point harnesses. You have a Grant sports steering wheel, crisp AutoMeter gauges, and have you counted the gears on the shifter yet?
The reason why this one looks so mean has to do with the engine bay. Those who know Ford performance dream of Jon Kaase\'s Boss Nine motors. Not only do you have a 460 cubic-inch crate V8 from the master, but this was actually enlarged to a street-dominating 520ci. It\'s a fully-built package that has been fortified and enhanced with Diamond pistons, SCAT rods, fully ported & polished cylinder heads, Fel-Pro gaskets, Boss Nine head bolts, Boss Nine aluminum heads, Comp Cams camshaft, Crane roller lifters, JKRE pushrods, and a Boss Nine intake machined for direct port fuel injection. It\'s a monster package that\'s also supported by the right pieces, including upgraded pulleys, a full MSD ignition package, and a large aluminum radiator. The headers were a nearly $2k investment all on their own, but they are worth it when you hear the thunder this custom coupe brings. There was over $7k invested to get a performance-built Tremec T56 six-speed manual transmission, and it includes a McLeod Tilton Hydraulic throwout bearing. It feeds a strong Currie 9-inch rear to deliver power to those massive Hoosier rear tires. The full package is complete with tubular A-arms up front, a four-link rear, and a strong four-wheel disc brake setup.
Complete with build receipts, this is the classic that\'s not for the faint of heart or the Sunday driver. But if you\'re looking for the ultimate street villain to give everyone else nightmares, this classic Mustang is the dark horse of your dreams. Call now!
