Please contact us for more information. Designed by Art Center College of Design alum Brian Geiszler, this stunning 1967 Ford Mustang Custom fastback was painstakingly built for the current owner as a cost of some 200,000 with nothing overlooked in the process. In addition to the finest parts and components, thousands of hours of labor were poured into this beauty. The Mustang's already svelte body was thoroughly tweaked, improved, and finished by Gresham, Oregon's highly respected Restorations and Reproductions, with literally every panel altered and improved for a truly unique and beautifully integrated overall look. While the bodywork was in full effect, the Mustang's custom-mixed Lipstick Red paint was prepared by Ron Morfitt at Jerry's Custom Paint, the result of dozens of trials in various lighting conditions. The Mustang's chassis was completely reengineered for incredible handling, including a new power rack-and-pinion system supplied by Total Control, plus a fully adjustable TCP front coil-spring suspension utilizing the existing mounting locations for ease of installation, including tubular A-arms and Alston VariShock coilovers. Crucially, the VariShock dampers are adjustable for height and travel, with their mounting locations on the Mustang built to exact specifications. Further, these coilovers are adjustable to 16 possible settings, allowing for customization to any road or track condition. Additional suspension features include a custom rear 4-link setup and splined competition-type rear sway bar. Braking is achieved with cross-drilled, power-assisted 4-wheel disc brakes. The experts at Aldridge Motorsports built the 450-hoprsepower 351 Windsor-based V-8 engine and the drivetrain, which includes a stout 9-inch Ford differential with Detroit Locker. The engine choice allowed Aldridge to bring it safely to 460 horsepower with a combination of components that would perform and respond well through all gears with durability to match. The injection system is by Imagine Injection on Weber style intake manifolds. Engine management system Holley HP EFI Computer, Custom Autotrend EFI wire harness, MSD ignition system. Body modifications addressed the Mustang's form and function with equal degrees of success. The door handles and identification badges were shaved, and the tubular aluminum grille was custom-made. All bodywork is steel, with the only exception of the car's Shelby/Eleanor-style nose. The Mustang's one-off custom wheels were also designed by Geiszler, and manufactured by EVOD Industries. Once the wheels were shod with rubber, they were found to be too wide to fit within the Mustang's fenderwells, so beautifully executed fender flares were designed and fitted, with the finished product delivering a seamless look. Low-drag NACA-style ducted vents were fitted to the rear sail panels as well. A lower and longer overall look comes from the updated rocker panels, which actually direct passing airflow like a funnel down the sides of the Mustang and into the rear brake-cooling scoops. The Mustang's rear was comprehensively modified with hand-fabricated metalwork encompassing the beautifully blended new Mustang taillights that only really become visible when the lights are activated. Extreme Lighting HID headlights are frenched into the modified front fenders. The body is all-metal, except for the nose and hood, both fiberglass items. The custom-crafted interior is equally stunning in appearance and highly functional, from the Tan glove leather upholstery to the custom red-backlit AutoMeter gauges, custom console, and German square-weave carpeting. Other highlights include a Kenwood computer-controlled touchscreen sounds system complete with a 6.95-inch VGA color LCD display with LED backlighting and motorized 7-step tilt-angle adjustability. A Shelby-style rear deck replaces the rear seat. Both the custom console and rear deck were created at Restorations and Reproductions and finished off by Guy's Interiors. As expected, this stunning '67 custom Mustang is a multiple award winner in show competition. It is also built with exacting design and engineering standards, literally oozing with performance and presence throughout. As offered, it marks one of the finest custom musclecars we have ever had the pleasure of offering for sale. As such, this tour de force is simply an incredible modern take on the ever-popular early Mustang fastback.
