614 E. Auto Center Dr.
It's instantly apparent that this 1965 Ford Mustang Restomod is a one-off full custom machine. But as you dig a little deeper, you'll discover that it took decades searching for the correct components to get this car right. That means a true Boss motor with even larger performance, an upgraded suspension, five-speed, a custom A/C interior, and it's all wrapped in this aggressive and distinct body.
If the body reminds you a bit of the Eleanor Mustang, that's more than a coincidence. The story on this one includes that it was used as part of the promotions for Gone in Sixty Seconds (2000). It has some of the speedy Eleanor attitude that everyone loves, including dual billet grilles, Shelby GT350-styel hood scoop, and sporty fastback style. But no one will ever call this a clone. It has its own style that really turns the performance look up a notch with the Boss-style front spoiler, full badge delete, extra wide fender flares, and those awesome HRE three-piece wheels. And while fastbacks easily earn their racing stripes, we've never seen it done in a bold purple. Since this was painted on top of a glossy black, and the whole package was cleared over, this extra curvaceous coupe really looks awesome as the light rolls evenly across the shapely panels.
The mixture of speed and style is even more apparent inside. The two-tone black and purple returns, and it's expertly intertwined in places like the door panels, steering wheel, and dash. The most distinct place to see this combo is on the seats. The modern Recaro front buckets with cool purple suede-like insert, and even the Team-Tech racing harness are done in purple. You get a three-spoke sports steering wheel, and beyond that is a full set of AutoMeter Phantom gauges - including a large speedo and tach. A sports shifter is a must in a car like this, and you might have now caught sight of the extra gear. There's all the right luxuries with air conditioning, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, power steering, cup holder center console, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth. And while this has been upgraded for comfort, the roll cage running through the rear is another reminder it's a competition-grade coupe.
There's an interesting story that goes with this car's history, and it really centers around the motor. The consignor purchased the car from the original owner in 1974. He spent the next quarter century amassing the best performance parts around for this dream build. It starts with a genuine 1970 Boss 302 V8 motor under the hood... and that's just the base for an awesome total performance setup. The motor was enhanced and fortified. It starts with Coast High Performance stroker package for 347 cubic-inches total. This also includes a Scat forged crank, Probe forged pistons, Comp Cams roller camshaft, Crane roller rockers, and port-matched aluminum heads. It inhales deeply with an Edelbrock Air Gap with a Demon 650 CFM four-barrel carburetor on top. And headers let this exhale with power in to the Magnafow H-pipe dual exhaust. You'll also notice the best in supporting components, including MSD Ignition, Blaster 2 coil, steel braded lines, AN fittings, and an aluminum radiator. This is a big power motor, and you get proper control over it as a Doug Nash DNE five-speed manual transmission with Mcleod hydraulic clutch. That feeds an aluminum 3-inch driveshaft on its way to a ford 9-inch limited slip rear end. The front suspension is a full Total Control Products (TCP) upgrade, and the rear features Chris Alston double adjustable rear shocks. There's added TCP bracing both in the engine bay and underneath the car to really keep this coupe solid and confident. Add in the grip of modern performance tires and Baer four-wheel disc brakes, and this is a serious machine for the street or track.
Complete with build receipts, this is the one-of-a-kind that took decades to look this awesome. So if you want a proper performance pony with a story to tell, call today!
