1965 Mustang Fastback Restomod! Feast your eyes on probably one of the most high-performance Fastbacks in WA state! Professionally built by John Deluz in San Diego, this car features the most high-performance parts money can buy. With only 4,800 miles on the build, I’ve maintained this vehicle and updated some parts. All additional work and upgrades were done by Brads Custom Auto in Lake City WA. Featured in the December 2005 Edition of Mustangs and Fords magazine (on front cover/3-pg spread). This supercharged Stang pushes 470 HP and combined with the TCP suspension and T56 six-speed, is an absolute thrill to drive.
This is a very special car, as I purchased the engine and blower in this car from my friend and fellow former US Navy SEAL and Mustang enthusiast, Tyrone (Ty) Woods. Ty perished while defending staff at the diplomatic outpost and US CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya, on September 12, 2012. Ty and I deployed overseas together, and we frequented various Mustang events and vintage races “back in the day”.

In the course of three weeks, I drove three performance cars: the Chevrolet Camaro SS with 455 horsepower from a 6.2-liter small block with direct injection; the Dodge Charger Scat Pack with 485 horsepower from a normally aspirated 392 Hemi; and the Ford Mustang EcoBoost Premium with 332 horsepower from a turbocharged and intercooled DOHC […]
Ford is bringing back its heralded Mustang Mach I, and plans to do so this spring, which apparently means between now and the first day of summer, which this year is June 20. Note: This is the Mustang Mach I, not the Mach E, so it’s a high-performance sports coupe, not a utility vehicle, and […]
You know that Fox-body Mustangs are hitting it when hoon-meister Ken Block looks into turning one into a wildly original custom gymkhana car concept. Ford was looking ahead when it introduced in 1984 a different kind of performance Mustang, powered by a turbo/intercooled 4-cylinder engine. The Mustang SVO was immediately identifiable by its double-decker rear […]
“This is how we World Premier during quarantine!” Ken Block says. “Three guys locked down in different parts of the country, using video chat to give you the FIRST LOOK at what might be the very next ‘Hoonicorn’ project! “Check it out as I chat with Ash Thorp (Hollywood graphic artist and designer of the […]
Sometimes collector cars are bought simply because of their rarity and value. But sometimes they are bought because of their story. For example, Jay Leno says he doesn’t buy cars, he buys stories. The Pick of the Day is a car with a story. The car is a 1978 Ford Mustang II, certainly not widely […]
With a 1967 Ford Mustang 390 GT leading the way and selling for £63,250 ($79,320), England’s H&H Classics reports that its April 29 online auction posted £600,000 ($752,500) in revenue with a 70 percent sell-through rate. “The sale attracted some 387 online bidders with log-ins from as far afield as California and New Zealand,” the […]
Maybe we need the police to investigate this one because the Pick of the Day is an intriguing offer but the advertisement on ClassicCars.com doesn’t answer all of our questions. The car is an unusually all-black 1989 Ford Mustang with dog-dish hubcaps and what appears to be a lowered stance. That would make sense since […]
Gale Halderman, the original designer of the Ford Mustang, died April 29 near Dayton, Ohio. Halderman has suffered from liver cancer, according to his family. He was 87. His iconic Mustang design sold more than 8 million units, inspired 6 model generations of design and has been continuously built for more than 50 years. Jimmy […]
On the 56th anniversary of its launch, Ford announced a pair of global honors for its Mustang: world’s best-selling sports car for all of 2019 as well as its fifth consecutive year as best-selling sports coupe. Since sixth-generation Ford Mustang global exports began in 2015 through December 2019, Ford has sold 633,000 coupes and convertibles […]
To celebrate the sale of the first million Mustangs, Ford did a special Sprint package in the spring of 1966. The package provided upgraded equipment for Mustangs with 6-cylinder engines, and proved successful enough that for 1968, a Sprint “Package B” option was available with a V8 engine. The Pick of the Day is a […]
