This 1965 Ford Mustang has been rebuilt into a one-off custom street machine. The car was purchased by the current owner in 2011 and imported into Australia. At the time it was in good condition, but it wasn’t long before the decision was made to pull it off the road and take it to another level.

Starting with the body, the car was sent stripped and sent off to Brad at Hypershine for a full bare metal repaint in Gloss Black. In order to give it a sinister look, the decision was made to black out all of the chrome and brightwork including bumpers, light surrounds, window surrounds, wipers, fuel cap and door handles. The front grill was swapped out for a custom billet item and most of the badges were removed from the car. In the back, a GT rear valance was used with dual exhaust poking through. A Ring Brothers carbon fibre bonnet scoop and Anvill carbon fibre rear vents add a cool modern high performance touch. The car sits slammed down low on a set of staggered Boss Motorsport wheels measuring 18 inches up front and 20” in the rear and wrapped in red striped tyres.

Inside the car has also been refinished but in a contrasting red. The front bucket seats received pony trim with fold down seat in the rear. There are colour match lap sash seat belts fitted for safety. The steering wheel is a wood rimmed LeCarra item and there is a T-bar automatic shifter mounted in the centre console. For comfort, an aftermarket air conditioning system is fitted with neatly integrated under dash vents.

Under the bonnet now lives a Paxton supercharged, 347ci Windsor Stroker V8 built by Abbott Race Engines. The engine build features a Comp Cams Xtreme Energy Hydraulic Roller Cam, ARP Rod bolts, stainless valves, Roller rockers, Forged Crank, CNC-ported aluminium heads, multi angle valve job and a Barry Grant 750 blower carb. The engine is force fed but a Paxton 1200 side mount blower. Spark is provided by an MSD 6AL-2 ignition system and exhaust gasses escape through a set of JBA Headers into a custom exhaust. The car was recently tuned by ASG Motorsport and made just over 400hp at the treads. The engine bay is well presented with Ring Brothers engine brace and billet hood hinges.

The engine is paired to a brand new TCI C4 automatic transmission with 3000 rpm TCI converter built by Russell’s Automatics on the Gold Coast. Power is fed to the rear wheels through a new diff with 3:5 centre supplied by Aussie Diffs. The front suspension has been upgraded to a complete Total Control setup with new A-arms and coil overs. The steering is also a power steering setup from Total Control. The rear suspension remains factory specs but is all rebuilt. The brakes have been upgraded to Wilwood discs on all four corners.

This isn’t your average Pony with a huge amount of time and money invested in upgrades to make it one of the toughest Mustangs on the road. The car was only just completed in May of this year and driven sparingly since.
