This 1966 Ford Mustang is instantly memorable because of the slick custom paint. But as you dig deeper, you discover a full restomod with a fuel-injected V8, an A/C interior, four-wheel disc brakes, overdrive transmission, and much more. So when you want a classic that's both an instantly recognizable icon and absolutely distinct, you know you need to get to know this award-worthy pony.
The Purple Heart Metallic is an eye-catching custom color that instantly announces this is something special. And with less than 400 miles on the full build, there's a clearcoat luster that radiates a terrific shine. The lighter purple stripes are painted on for permanence. They added definition to the sporty kick-up of the rear fender, and this also has the cool strobe style that came on some great 1960s muscle machines. This signals a true custom that also respects its history. So you have some cool updates on the classic style with a GT350R front bumper and billet grille, and the modern 17-inch US Mags wheels remind us of the classic Shelby wheels. And there's a GT-style dual exhaust coming out of the rear valance. While the rear panel looks smooth and opaque, it will light up with sequential tail lights just like the best 1960s Fords did. But while some pieces were inspired by the past, this fresh restomod also utilizes the latest technology to make for its own style. So you have LED headlights with purple halos. The door handles are shaved and now work on a remote key fob. Even the door mirrors were taken away for sleekness, and now you have side view cameras!
The interior continues the full custom treatment with the right touches of classic style. You have the classic low-back parchment front bucket seats, and the rear seat and door panels also match. Plus, the carpet, headliner, and trunk all coordinate in nice shades of tan and brown. And from the moment you slip into the driver's seat you can tell this one is very different. The center console is a custom piece that's more useful with a cup holder and padded armrest. Your dash is a full custom piece that houses the air conditioning controls, side view camera screens, and touchscreen infotainment system that includes the AM/FM stereo and backup camera. And there are also good driver-oriented upgrades, like the sports steering wheel and white-faced Marshall gauges with speedo and tach.
The engine bay continues this attractive custom appearance. It's a thoughtful setup with purple painted inner walls that show off the special motor in the middle. This is a 302 cubic inch V8 - something larger than the factory ever offered in '66. And fuel injection was also decades away. Not only do you get more displacement, but also there are more go-fast goodies. It's a roller motor with 10.5 compression pistons, Ford Performance F303 camshaft, hydraulic lifters, a custom intake, and a 1999 Explorer computer with Moates Quarterhorse programming board. The custom powerhouse is also supported by the right pieces, like a serpentine belt setup, a Champion aluminum radiator with electric fans, and the battery in the trunk for better weight distribution. Stainless headers add power and rumble as they feed the H-pipe dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers with a terrific growl. The V8 is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission that gives you good ratios for power and is comfortable for all-day overdrive cruising. In fact, it's made to be a solid driver, and that is why it includes an upgraded tubular A-arm front end, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes.
