1968 Mustang Restomod – Owner Ike Taylor – Pittsburgh PA
For your consideration is an amazing piece of machinery, a 1968 fully custom Mustang with modern amenities. This is a full custom, very high end, quality built car. No expenses were spared during the build of this car. Down to hood hinges, door handles and panels; the best of the best. The craftsmanship that went into this car dictated a 4,000 hour build. There has been $500,000 invested into this car with parts and labor. The car was built and is currently owned by the Steelers two time Superbowl Champ, Ike Taylor!
This car was a feature car at SEMA 2016.

Exterior: Finished in a beautiful high end BASF finish, the car has a very sinister look with a low stance and limited chrome. The black bumpers, scoops, trim, wipers and Billet Specialties wheels really compliment the paint. This car possess an attitude of sinister sophistication. The attitude this car has just sitting still is amazing, let alone steam rolling the pavement with its 325mm wide rear tires. It's an absolute showstopper wherever the car resides or drives. All of the windows have a light tint to compliment its dark attitude. The custom body mods are all very tasteful and very aesthetically pleasing, such as the subtle drip rail delete, Ring Brothers rear deck lid and upper rear fender valance. The bumpers have been relocated snug against the body. The air scoops are functional for fresh air and brake cooling!
Interior: There isn’t much you’re going to find factory ’68 Ford here. Everything is modernized and fresh. Haltech digital dash and controller. Alpine control system with Apple Car Play, all of the speakers and amplifiers are JL Audio, 3 way components, 2 10” subwoofers.
Body: Check out the video above to see the craftsmanship that went into every inch of the car. The floors, firewall, roll cage, wheel wells are all fresh and professionally fabricated sheet metal.
Brakes: 4 wheel disks. HUGE drilled and slotted rotors and 6 Piston Calipers by Wilwood.
This is a custom, well-built, high-end sports car. While it looks like a 1968 Ford Mustang, it handles like a modern car and pulls like a dragster. Sitting in this car may remind you of a new higher-end sports luxury car. As a well-built custom packing a major punch, this car would suit well in your collection, or a show car, even on the track. It will go great in a straight line or cutting corners with authority. The right person who can step up to this would find themselves with one world class ’68!
