Mustang’s third body style emerges.
The Shelby GT350 wasn't the only high-performance Mustang available if you wanted a fast pony.
Classic Car Overview
This mustang resto-mod is the beneficiary of a detailed, ground-up restoration that took years to complete. That meticulous reboot reflects beauty in the form of epic House Of Kolor Tangelo Pearl two-stage, and that two-stage looks especially fetching under a roster of tailored details and pearl Shelby top stripes. Not to mention a paint correction and ceramic coating, inside and out, completed in November 2022 by Arizona ranked #1 XPEL dealer of the year and nationally awarded PPF shop in Arizona. The paint alone is outstanding!! Open the hood and you'll find 408 cubic inches of rowdy Ford stroker motor that's been hardwired with Holley Sniper fuel injection. A satin air cleaner drops wind through a muted Weiand Stealth intake. That intake feeds hot Air Flow Research heads, which wrap lightweight aluminum castings around 2.20 intake valves and 1.60 exhaust valves. Those heads float fabricated and polished valve covers between a stainless breather and a COMP hydraulic cam. Stout 9 to 1 compression gets sparked by MSD 6 AL-2 ignition, which shoots shock between an MSD Blaster coil, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor and loomed MSD Super Conductor plug wires. Billet brackets join billet pulleys to spin an Edelbrock water pump next to a polished alternator. That pump fills an aluminum AFCO radiator that's outfitted with a polished expansion tank and a big SPAL puller fan. Spent gases are jettisoned through custom shorty headers. And overall, the car's sedate, Satin Black engine compartment is very well done, featuring top notch ancillaries like an enlarged oil pan and a quality Wilwood master cylinder. The bottom of this awesome Mustang is just as impressive as its slick exterior and tidy engine bay. Behind the mean motor, a tough C4 automatic transmission makes excellent use of a mild street converter. A 9-inch Ford axle spins power through a Traction-Lok differential, 3.55 gears and 31-spline shafts. That proven drivetrain pushes a custom Torque Arm rear-clip that's garnished with a sturdy Panhard Bar and QA-1 coil-over-shocks. Opposite that clip, a Heidts Mustang II front-half cages two more QA-1 coil-overs in tubular control arms. Naturally, that kit is led by rack-and-pinion steering. At the corners, polished Wilwood calipers squeeze drilled and slotted rotors. Exhaust is handled by custom, 2.5-inch stainless pipes that snake through an H-shaped crossover and great sounding MagnaFlow mufflers. Power rolls through American Racing Shelby Cobras, which spin 225/50ZR17 BF Goodrich g-Force Sports in front of 275/40ZR18 BF Goodrich g-Force Sports.
