We're excited to offer this one of a kind, first generation Mustang for your consideration. It has been transformed to have a slightly tougher look, thanks to a number of changed body components, and a custom color. A tastefully modified and refinished interior, and a built engine under the hood make for an awesome experience for driver and passenger alike.
As you've surely noticed, the body has been changed to give this first generation Mustang a tougher, muscular look. Fender flares, side skirts, a molded rear spoiler, vented hood, and an aggressive looking front bumper are the main points of interest on the exterior. The car has been finished in a custom Copper metallic color with painted black metallic racing stripes. Other highlights are a Billet grille, driving lights, hood pins, side exit exhaust, air ducts, stainless steel fuel filler, and 18” American Racing wheels wrapped in sticky tires.
Pony seats are a focal point in the very nicely finished interior. The interior is extremely tidy and features new chrome and trim throughout, as well as new upholstery. The gauges sit in the factory locations but are upgraded to digital items from Intellitronix. Close at hand is a round, white shift knob that tops a Hurst shifter, which is connected to the 5-speed transmission. Other highlights include a Cobra-badged 3 spoke steering wheel, modern radio with a retro look, and a removable center console.
Under the vented hood is a 302i V8 bored over to a current displacement of 306ci. As we mentioned, a 5-speed manual transmission handles gear selection. A number of engine modifications have been made to go along with the larger displacement. Comp cams, ARP bolts, modified and re-balanced crankshaft, Flotek cylinder heads, Hedman Headers, aluminum radiator, Accel and Pertronix Flame Thrower ignition components, Edelbrock Intake Manifold, and Holley 4 barrel carburetor. Peeking through the American Racing wheels, are disc brakes front and rear.
This unique Mustang is the whole package thanks to custom paint, a refinished interior, and a modified V8 under the hood. It's a head-turner, sounds great, and it's a blast to drive.
