Vehicle Description

Over the past few years, we've certainly seen some nice resto-mods. But this 1967 Mustang, with its trick Roush 427 and seductive aggressive styling, is definitely one of the coolest! Fully sorted and ready to hit the road, this awesome Ford combines the stump-pulling power of one of Dearborn's best tuners with vintage Detroit style that's cool enough to lead a parade. And today, thanks to meticulous restoration, not only is it an exceptionally fun place to spend a sightseeing summer, it's also an authentic piece of Americana that'll be welcomed at virtually any car show in any town. If you're looking for a choice classic that's as alluring as it is powerful, who says you need a high maintenance original? This awesome pony will look just as cool rolling down the road, show just as well at the local drive-in and provide just as many miles of carefree cruising!

GRAY WITH A DASH OF PEPPER

A slick '60s icon that features an impressively straight body, this Mustang benefitted from a detailed, nut-and-bolt restoration that supplemented solid sheetmetal with an aggressive body kit. Naturally, those curves were dressed in sleek Pepper Gray and Metallic Black war paint. And today, the car rolls as one head-turning thoroughbred that's right at home reflecting a summertime cruise-in!

Back in the day, Dearborn designers made sure every year of the first-generation Mustang had plenty of visual sizzle. And in the 21st century, it doesn't get much better than this Ford's racy combination clean factory accents and Shelby-inspired trim. At the front of the car, Shelby-branded billet hangs prominent PIAA fog lamps between PIAA driving lamps and a custom valance that's fashioned around modern headlights. Above those lights, a lightweight, high-clearance hood leads a stainless-trimmed windshield that's sealed between polished, bullet-style mirrors and a black, power-operated cloth folding top. A long profile seats polished door handles and billet-trimmed quarter scoops between a billet fuel filler and appropriately aggressive rocker panel skirts. And at the back of the car, an extended, Shelby-style decklid joins a lightweight bumper and angled fender caps to cage a black, Shelby-branded valance, monochromatic taillights and PIAA reverse lamps.

ROUSH POWERED SHELBY

Pop this Mustang's lightweight hood and you'll find 427 cubic inches of Roush Performance small block that gives fresh meaning to the words "Go Baby, Go"! Ensuring this Mustang's would-be challengers will face a much direr reality than that provided by a retrofitted romantic relic, this surly Roush mill utilizes a forged 4340 crank, 4340 H-beams, a hydraulic roller cam and forged pistons to twist a massive 550 horsepower into 535 lb./ft. of all-day torque. Speed begins with a "ROUSH" branded air cleaner, which mixes fresh oxygen with high octane pump gas that's provided by a coated Holley 870 4-barrel. That carb is bolted to a single-plane Edelbrock intake, which rides between aluminum, CNC-ported Roush heads that hide fluid roller rockers under stylish Roush valve covers. Fire is provided by a hot MSD distributor and loomed Roush 9mm plug wires. Cooling comes courtesy of a big aluminum radiator, which uses bright hoses and an aluminum water pump to circulate coolant past electric puller fans, a polished expansion tank and a "V8" branded cap. Coated BBK headers evacuate spent gases into large-diameter pipes. And at the front of those tubes, a Billet Specialties Tru Trac serpentine drive spins a polished Powermaster alternator opposite a polished AC compressor. Aesthetically, the Jet Black block looks right at home in the car's massaged engine bay. Well-planned details, like billet hood supports, braided fluid lines, a Ringbrothers clutch reservoir and a reliable Wilwood master cylinder, are both functional and appealing. And, since the whole set up was machined, balanced assembled and dyno tested by the pros at Roush, it's guaranteed to be a fun ride!

PUTTING THE RESTO IN RESTO-MOD

Take a look under this Mustang and you'll find solid floors that are highlighted by smooth, Pepper Gray two-stage and a roster of choice hardware. A Roush-sourced Tremec TKO600 5-speed spins power to a 9-inch Ford axle that's packed with a posi-traction differential and big, 3.89 gears. That drivetrain hangs in an upgraded chassis, which aligns a Rod and Custom Motorsports front-half with a quality Heidts rear-clip. Turns are easy thanks to power rack-and-pinion steering. At the corners of the car, red Wilwood calipers clamp a quartet of drilled and slotted rotors. Aluminized exhaust, wired with an H-shaped crossover, fills throaty Stainless Works mufflers, which bark through requisite side-exit tips. And power meets the pavement through polished American Racing Shelby Cobras, which spin 245/40R18 Firestone Firehawk Indy 500s in front of 275/40R18 Firestone Firehawk Indy 500s.

TRADITIONAL WITH A FEW TWISTS

Swing the doors and you'll find a fully restored cockpit that's been updated with a perfect amount of style and convenience. Front and center, modern buckets join a traditional bench in stretching Kustom Classics Carroll Shelby Signature Leather under a padded roll bar. A factory-spec dash hangs fresh Auto Meter Phantom telemetry over controls for modern air conditioning. Fresh carpet floats Mustang-themed floor mats between thick Dynamat, billet foot pedals and a customized console that's centered on a short Mustangs To Fear shifter. A polished and leather-wrapped Lecarra steering wheel laps a modern, tilting column. Good breeze and great V8 sounds come courtesy of four power-operated windows. And modern Kenwood audio bumps tunes through small tweeters, large Kenwood kick speakers and big Pioneer subwoofers.

When it comes to maximizing the amount of metal your money buys, you simply can't go wrong with a purpose-built pony car. Thanks to its thorough restoration, this legendary Ford is a great driving piece that's cool, historic AND fun. If you're looking for a stylish classic that commands respect on both the boulevard and the show field, this slick Mustang is just your style!
