What do you see when you dial up our website and check out this polished Mustang? One of the coolest muscle cars ever produced? One of the most in-demand classic cars on the market? An outrageous pro-tourer that doubles as an athlete and a show queen? All the above?

Sure, first generation Mustangs are some of the coolest and most popular classics around, and the comfort and ability provided by the pro-touring movement really puts the icing on the cake. But this fastback… Well, it's on a different level. Complementing everything great about timeless Detroit muscle with thoughtful customization and incredible power, this Ford is an extremely visceral version of one of the most popular muscle cars ever created!

A TOURING HOT ROD WITH PRO POWER

Back in 2014, when our own RK527 followed the Hot Rod Power Tour across America, we thought we were the only folks crazy enough to shove a massive Jon Kaase Racing Engine between the fenders of a first generation Mustang. Boy, were we wrong! Displacing an even 600 cubic inches and soaking up $36K of capital before the installation of any ancillaries, this Ford's Kaase Boss 9 V8 twists a dyno-proven 912 horsepower and 826 lb./ft. of torque. At the top of the cast iron block, a K&N X-Stream air cleaner drops wind in to a tall Kaase intake that's wired with FAST electronic multi-port fuel injection. That single-plane funnel feeds lightweight aluminum heads, which cap stainless valves and aluminum roller rockers with polished Moroso breathers and $750 worth of Jon Kaase valve covers. Inside the Kaase-tuned mill, a 4340 crank twists forged 4340 rods under diamond forged pistons. At the sides of those pistons, heat-wrapped tubes form large-diameter headers. At the front of those tubes, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor shoots spark through pliable Jon Kaase wires. Beneath that distributor, a Billet Specialties Tru Trac serpentine drive spins an Edelbrock water pump below a polished alternator and a polished AC compressor. And in front of those ancillaries, a sealed support seats a meaty AFCO radiator ahead of fixed water tubes and spry SPAL puller fans. The car's smoothed engine bay is dotted with first class accessories, like trick dipsticks, a Wilwood master cylinder and billet hood supports. And everything, from the open scoop to the custom oil pan, gleefully implies the Boss 9's prodigious power!

SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON TOURING

While the idea of making an old car as good as or better than a new car might seem a bit optimistic, the pro-touring movement is not without merit. Check the bottom of this Mustang and you'll find solid, Satin Black floors that frame an impressive array of world class upgrades. $5,700 worth of 4L80E 4-speed, sourced from Hughes Performance, makes the most effective use of the car's monstrous torque. That transmission, installed by Kaase, twists power to a familiar FAB9 housing, which spins Strange internals around big, 3.73 gears. That braced and painted axle rides a Total Control Products 4-bar, which threads a thick sway bar behind proven VariShock coil-overs. That clip pushes a Mustang II-style front-half, which wraps QA-1 coil-overs in tubular control arms and a second thick sway bar. Power rack-and-pinion steering supplies the turns. Braking is equally class, with four Wilwood calipers, 6-piston up front and 4-piston out back, squeezing four drilled and slotted rotors. The aforementioned headers dump spent gases in to wrapped, large-diameter pipes, which terminate in aggressive Borla ProXS mufflers. The car's heavily reinforced chassis is woven around quality ancillaries like an electric parking brake, sturdy subframe connectors and an electrified Aeromotive fuel tank. And everything rolls on 3-piece B Forged 280s, which twist 225/40ZR18 Sumitomo HTR ZIIIs in front of 265/40ZR18 Sumitomo HTR ZIIIs.

A BOSS MACH 1 WITH A SHADE OF LEXUS

As a rule, the best restorations begin as solid cars, and, based on appearance, this choice Mustang was already in great shape when it rolled in to Buford Georgia's American Restomod. Naturally, intense focus was put on the car's legendary body, with solid sheetmetal finessed for excellent fit. And that metal was eventually bathed in what the owner describes as “a Lexus color turned into candy”. Detailing begins with an offset stripe that frames red, white and black in silky silver borders. At the front of that stripe, tri-bar headlights stretch a billet grille above a tucked and painted bumper. Beneath that bumper, a carbon fiber splitter points the eye to a sleek profile that's finished with color-keyed mirrors and custom door handles. At the top of that profile, an exaggerated Boss 429 hood fronts a filled, wiperless cowl, which founds tinted glass under polished frames. And at the back of the car's stripe, a satin taillight panel hangs a billet fuel filler above a smoothed valance, and a second tucked and painted bumper.

CONSERVATIVE CUSTOMIZATION

Given the broad aftermarket support enjoyed by the Mustang, it's relatively easy to build a serious performer. But most builds fail to refine that muscle into something that's livable on an everyday basis. After all, what fun is winning at the show if the ride there and back is almost insufferable? Well, refinement, and specifically interior refinement, is one of this Ford's many virtues thanks to Old Fort, North Carolina's Street Seats Hotrod Interiors. The $26K cockpit kicks off with adjustable Corbeau buckets, which wrap 4-point Sparco harnesses around plush suede and leather. The car's dash hangs official-looking Auto Meter Cobalt telemetry in a sweet carbon fiber instrument panel. Beneath that dash, a custom, full-length console floats more carbon fiber around a short Lokar shifter and Vintage Air climate control. In front of the driver, a Billet Specialties Formula Wheel laps a tilting column and aluminum pedals. And premium cut-pile carpet founds a 4-point roll bar between carbon fiber sills and billet jamb vents.
