There is no one word to describe this 1970 Mustang Resto Mod. Every little detail has been addressed, and this is truly a top-notch build! Impressive doesn't even come close to explaining how well-done this car is. It may look like a “regular” 1970 Mustang from the outside, but it is hiding a whole lot of fun secrets inside and underneath.
If you want a sleeper, look no further. With the hood shut, absolutely nobody will see the tail-whoopin' they are about to receive coming! This is no 289 Mustang secretary car. We'll just cut right to the chase; this bad boy is 5.0 Coyote swapped! You read that correctly; the mad scientist that put this puppy together managed to shoehorn a Coyote motor in it. But he didn't stop there, the fit and finish of this car is first class. This Mustang sounds great, drives great, and runs like the world's fastest stallion with a wolf on its tail! Sitting on TCI suspension, it is no wonder this car handles like an absolute dream. Doug's long tube headers and a Magnaflow exhaust kit are responsible for the glorious tones this car makes, and a Performance AODE transmission makes for smooth sailing on the open road.
This is one of those vehicles that just keeps getting better! If you aren't sold on it yet, one look at the underside ought to do it. All of the sheet metal work was done professionally and properly, and it sure looks great. Subframe connectors are in place; and absolute must for any Mustang packing this much power! Additionally, 4-wheel disc brakes have been installed and all braking components are from Wilwood. The master cylinder and brake pedal were professionally relocated to accommodate the larger engine, but from inside the car you would never know! The rear end is a Quick Performance 9-inch with Eaton Trutrac.
The inside of this Mustang is perhaps what makes it most unique, aside from what is under the hood of course. A full TMI interior has been installed, giving the car a slightly modern look while retaining most of the original styling cues. TMI components include seat upholstery, dash pad, center console, and door panels. What is great about the TMI items is that they fit as replacements for OEM materials, meaning the interior doesn't feel out of place and little to no modifications are required. Dakota Digital gauges have been installed along with a RetroSound stereo with Bluetooth compatibility. Yet again, the new is seamlessly integrated with the old.
The exterior is gorgeous. Finished in Grabber Blue, it has retained all of the original styling cues with no extreme modifications. At first glance, the Coyote scoop doesn't even appear out of place! This is what is so appealing about this Mustang; it looks mostly original from the outside and most folks will be none the wiser. The body and paint were professionally done, and it is some of the best body and paint work you will see anywhere. Good luck finding a flaw!
The owner of this car invested over $60,000 in parts alone not including all the painstaking labor it took to make this car 100% dialed in and finished out and not including purchase of the car in the first place. You would be hard pressed to build one this stunning for the price, and it genuinely doesn't get much cooler than this!
