We're not sure if we should call this a resto-mod, pro-street, or just the ultimate classic 1965 Ford Mustang 2+2. But you don't need a definition to recognize that the ultra slick red paint, 425 hp V8, five-speed, and a whole lot of other quality features that make this custom build the coolest fastback around.
A first-year fastback is a rare treat, but it only takes a moment to realize you're looking at something extra special. The bright red paint gives you a clear indication of a serious investment just by how much shine it radiates in the sunlight. The modern clearcoat application is far more advanced than anything that came from the factory in '65, so it sets the tone for this quality custom build perfectly. And of course, no body imperfections could hide from a luster like this, so it's a telltale sign of an investment in bodywork fundamentals. With a shine like this only the best brightwork will do, and that's why the new bumpers have a mirror-like appearance. There is some serious aggression built into this coupe, but it never looses the classic Mustang appearance. For example, the racing wheels, side scoops, and side pipes are all reminiscent of the Shelby Mustangs. Plus, the billet grille, cowl hood, hood pins, and custom side windows are great custom additions that draw attention, too.
Inside, the competition attitude becomes even better defined. The modern Procar Rally seats and G-Force racing belts keep you and your passenger firmly planted. You get a three-spoke sports steering wheel, and beyond that is a full set of AutoMeter Phantom gauges, including a tach. A Hurst shifter is a must in a car like this, and you might have now caught sight of the extra gear. The door panels, carpets, and dash could give the impression of a nice stock Mustang. There's even an Autosound AM/FM stereo, power windows, and provisions for air conditioning. But the full roll cage running through the interior is another reminder it's a competition-grade coupe.
Under the hood is a performance-built V8 that you'll be proud to show off. After all, the bracer bars, steel-braded hoses, polished brackets & pulleys, bright valve covers, and air grabber come together to show that solid engineering can be sexy, too. And when you look beyond the flash, there's even more substance with a 392 cubic-inch block that has plenty of go-fast goodies, including an Edelbrock intake, Holley four-barrel carburetor, aluminum heads, and headers. There's a ton more upgrades (call for all the info,) but just know that there was over $12K invested in the performance engine build alone. The full power package was dynoed to 429 horsepower at the rear wheels, and the roar of the custom dual exhaust lets the world know you're making some serious power. A monster motor like this needs all the right supporting equipment, and that includes Ron Morris Performance motor mounts, MSD ignition, racing fuel cell, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fans. The TKO 600 five-speed manual transmission, MC Motorsports hydraulic clutch conversion kit, and Centerforce clutch is the exact kind of stout package you want to transmit all the power to the Currie 9-inch 3.50 Trac Lok rear end. And when you make this kind of power, you need to upgrade the suspension, too. That's why up front there are new control arms, Varishock adjustable shocks, and a thick sway bar. Add in the grip of modern performance tires and SSBC four-wheel disc brakes, and this is a serious machine for the street or track.
With only 3,388 miles on the build, and a full packet of receipts, manuals, and photos, you can pass this exceptionally new custom build off for your own (we'll never tell.) But a one-of-a-kind like this means you have to be the first one to grab it if you want this Mustang story to be yours. Call now!!
