You usually want a 1966 Ford Mustang fastback for its rarity... but
you can instantly recognize this one is so much more than just
that. It's a pro touring restomod where they expertly integrated a
modern fuel-injected 427ci LS V8. And there are a ton more
upgrades, like the full Detroit Speed suspension, five-speed
transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, and loaded custom interior.
Plus, it's built to be a terrific driver that shows off the best of
vintage mixed with unmistakable custom style. So this is exactly
how to get the best of everything in one unique package.
This Mustang has a mean machine look, but there's also an overall
freshness you can see on a build with less than 400 miles on it.
For example, the paint is a thoughtful full package where the matte
Olive Drab could get you on a military base... aside from its
smooth sheen that is a giveaway to a modern and more recent
application. And the black stripe with red pinstripe border will
even remind you of the Roush P-51 Mustang. As you really look over
the whole package you can start to see the full gravity of the
custom work. The front bumper is eliminated with the race-inspired
front end, and the rear is color-matched to let you see how much it
hugs the body's form. You have LED headlights, Ring Bros
taillights, large side exhaust tips, and a full black trim package.
The ForgeLine 18-inch wheels have a tarnished brass look that
harmonizes with the paint, and so it makes for a great way to show
off that extra meaty rear tire set. And we like how this was
purposely built to be a driver with exposed rivets on the rear
fender flares and a touch of blacktop battle style. It gives this
the look like it has more purpose than just custom style. And as
you dig deeper, you'll see that is the true theme of the build. The
body saves weight with fiberglass fenders, and that mean hood with
scoop and heat extractors is made from carbon fiber. And the
restoration was even done with the panels off so that a
comprehensive roll/bracing cage could be integrated to make a
stronger coupe. It's all about making a distinct Mustang that will
make you want to get in and drive.
The interior features diamond-pattern leather, Alcantara inserts,
and artfully exposed metal. So it's going to be hard to not make
comparisons to cars like a Bentley Continental Supersports. The
look is a fusion of luxury and performance, and the full features
package reinforces this mixture. You have desirable comforts, like
a touchscreen infotainment stereo w/Bluetooth, a cup holder center
console, and the air conditioning controls (the system will need
servicing to blow cold again.) right above your toggle switches.
The high-back bucket seats bridge the gap of power and lux with a
pure performance style that also gives you good bolstering for
all-day comfort. You have an American Powertrain shifter, full
SpeedHut gauges, and the Sparco sports steering wheel is on a tilt
column with a quick disconnect. You see more of the custom roll
cage inside, and we particularly love the look of the drilled steel
in the rear pillars that offer a race-ready lightweight
The engine bay has a smooth and mean look that features a
fuel-injected LS motor at its heart. This may be a Chevy motor in a
Ford product, but they both shared a passion for the magic 427
cubic-inch displacement. So it's great to have one of the most
advanced powerhouses around that still gives you a hint of history.
And this one has been properly upgraded with a cold air intake, CBM
Motorsports fuel rails, an aluminum radiator with dual electric
fans, and the Optima battery moved to the trunk for better weight
distribution. We're told this is putting about 500 horsepower at
the rear wheels, and a car like this needs the right supporting
components for you to fully enjoy it all. So control is the theme
of the powertrain with a T5 five-speed manual transmission, a
Detroit Speed front subframe featuring reinforced tubular A-arms,
and a Detroit Speed four-link rear with panhard rod. Wilwood
four-wheel power disc brakes, drilled & slotted rotors, and
Michelin Pilot sport tires complete quite a tight-handling package.
And despite the look of an aggressive side-pipe custom, this one
starts up with a quiet enough nature that won't get you in trouble
in the neighborhood. But once you hit the streets, you can unleash
the beastly growl that goes with the car's intimidating style.
It's absolutely cool how this one brings the most modern 427 power
to an iconic pony car design. So hurry up on this deal, because
your dream pro touring restomod Mustang may never come up for grabs
again. Call today!!!
