Sunnyside Chevrolet of Elyria, Ohio in conjunction with Greg's
Sports, Classic, & Muscle is proud to offer for sale this beautiful
1965 Mustang Fastback Restomod.
Every once in a while, we get a car here that stops even the most
ardent car guy cold in his tracks. This is one of those cars. The
knowledgeable car guys I know have said- "I don't want to drive it
can you just let me ride in it?" "I saw this coming off the truck
it's the most amazing car you have ever had here" (we've had 500
plus). These are hardened car dogs. To call this Stang amazing
would be, in my opinion, an understatement.
Let's start with the build itself. This one was commissioned and
overseen by its owner in Massachusetts that simply wanted the best
of old world and new world. He sought out his friend Danny O'Day
who did the complete build, and oh what a build it is. Look up
Danny O'day, the record holder wheel stander quarter mile guru, and
revel in what that man is capable of. This build is a showcase of
his skills -incredible.
REAL 427 SIDE OILER. REAL 427 SIDE OILER. Did I mention it's a real
427 side oiler- date code 1967. The story goes that it came out of
Junior Johnsons personal inventory but we have no paper trail to
prove that. What we do know is that the block is a stock bore (how
rare is that) and is fitted with a Nascar Crank and Edelbrock
Heads. I also heard the terms "Dyno Fresh and "R" motor- not sure
what those terms mean but I'm sure some of you folks out there
know. She's a thumper. The owner told me he never even used the
Nitrous 250 shot available in the trunk. Said he never needed it.
Having driven this car, I understand why.
So, we have an old school, very valuable real side oiler providing
motivation. Now, let's look at how that motivation gets
transferred. Backed by a TKO 5-speed trans I can say that in 5th
the motor is just lumbering along even with its 4.30 rear end. 1st
thru 4th you are screaming the power down. Speaking of the third
member it's a custom fabricated 9" dead lock positraction. Backed
by 35 spline axels. Work of art.
While we are underneath let's mention that Danny custom made the
entire chassis that is powder coated and stunning. Heights
independent front end, polished A arms, rack and pinion power
steering, and 10 setting adjustable shocks and of course individual
wheel air ride. Yowsa. The owner/builder I got the car from told me
that anytime Danny couldn't find a part exactly as he wanted it he
custom made it- front hubs, rear wheel spacer so the rears can just
come off in case you want to run drag slicks, the oil pump was a
$2700 proposition by the time Danny got done customizing it to his
liking. Every piece of sheet metal in the floors has an X in it for
strength. Every wire and line through the frame. Getting the
Finally let's talk about the aesthetics. The paint on this car is
laser straight, and incredible. If you know how hard it is to get
panels flat enough for a black finish like this you know there are
HUNDREDS of hours of prep to make a car look like this. I've spent
a good bit of time looking for imperfections in the finish and have
found virtually none. The Shelby wheels and tires are exactly right
for the look of this beauty. The interior is full custom leather
with a full cage (we removed the driver and passenger bar for use
and photos) and of course is complimented with a great stereo GPS,
power steering, power windows (regular cranks for appearance) and
full harness seat belts. The Sparco racing seats serve the purpose
beautifully. On the dash there are toggles for the regular fuel
pump plus the secondary pump for Nitrous. NO SHORTCUTS. PERIOD.
So we all fully understand we have a good bit of paper on this car
but we also have an owner who paid cash to have a lot of things
done. If you are looking for the paper to prove what this car is
this may not be your car- if you know what you are looking at and
what things like this cost you will be impressed and won't worry
about the "paper".
You are never going to pull into a car show and see anything you
will be jealous of driving this beautiful Mustang. If you do, I'd
like to see that car.
Drive it, show it, keep it in a bubble and polish it as a prized
possession, the choice is yours once you make it yours.
