Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by, is this Coyote-powered 1965 Ford Mustang fastback. The 460-horsepower 5.0-liter V8 is paired to a TREMEC T-56 six-speed manual transmission, but those aren’t the only modifications: this pony car features a channeled body on a Scott’s Hotrods ‘n Customs chassis, Ridetech coilover suspension, 18-inch Boyd Coddington wheels, and more. Finished in white with gray and red trim over a red leather interior, this Mustang restomod is offered with a clear title.

The white body is accented with metallic gray and red striping, and features color-keyed bumpers and mirror caps. Features include an open-design hood with Ringbrothers hood pins, Kindig-It recessed door handles, side exhaust outlets, aluminum fuel filler cap, Ringbrothers chrome taillight bezels, rear spoiler, and “Tenacious” decals.

Boyd Coddington 18-inch five-spoke aluminum wheels with polished lips are wrapped in 225/40 (front) and 315/30 (rear) Michelin Pilot Sport tires.

The cockpit has hand-stitched Oxblood Red leather interior including the rear package shelf, door panels, dash, and center console. Features include Digital Guard Dawg keyless entry, push-button start, leather-wrapped Boyd Coddington steering wheel, Ringbrothers billet aluminum shift knob, aluminum pedals, Memphis Audio touchscreen system, under-dash accent lighting, and battery cut-off switch.

Instrumentation includes a 120-mph speedometer, 8,000-rpm tachometer, and auxiliary gauges for the fuel, oil, water, and battery.

The Coyote 5.0-liter V8 produces 460 horsepower, with power transferred to the rear wheels via a console-shifted TREMEC T-56 six-speed manual transmission and Moser nine-inch rear axle.

The body was channeled and rides on a chassis from Scott’s Hotrods ‘n Customs. Handling is assisted by a set of Ridetech coilovers. A hydroboost braking system with Wilwood discs, coupled with drilled and slotted rotors, provides stopping power.

Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in the Southwest.
