Over the past few years, we’ve definitely seen some pretty cool tweaks. But the 1967 Mustang, with its hot Coyote engine and attractive Eleanor design, is definitely one of the coolest cars! Sorted and ready to hit the road, this gorgeous Ford combines the trunk-dragging of Dearborn’s best muscle cars with classic Detroit style elegant enough to drive a show. Today, thanks to careful restoration, not only is it an exceptionally reliable and comfortable place to spend a summer sightseeing, it is also an original piece of Americana that would be welcomed at almost any auto show in any city. If you’re looking for a classic option that’s as attractive as it is powerful, who says you need a high-maintenance original? This adorable pony will look like he’s rolling on the road, also shows up at your local driving spot and saves many miles of carefree sailing!

A professional six-figure build that includes a five-year schedule and $30,000 worth of paint and metalwork, this Mustang complements Dynacorn’s solid plates with an aggressive Eleanor body kit sourced directly from Mustangs To Fear. However, instead of wearing everyone’s favorite Ford movie Pepper Gray dye, this rich two-stage black pony swept under sublime charcoal streaks. Today, the car rolls like a thoroughbred that catches the eye at home, reflecting a summer cruise!

Back in the day, Dearborn designers made sure every year their first-generation Mustang had plenty of visual buzz. And in the 21st century, it doesn’t get much better than these cheery Ford factory touches and Shelby-inspired trims. At the front of the car, grilles hung a prominent Cobra emblem and clear PIAA fog lights between the bright headlights and illusion driving lights. Under those lights, an Eleanor bumper curves aggressive ground effects around sculpted Shelby-branded fenders that frame the Eleanor-mounted hood. Behind that hood are body-matched stainless-steel tinted glass traces, which mirror polished bullet-style mirrors, Shelby-style vertical scoops, and polished Monza-style fuel fillers. Beneath those scoops, decorative ductwork on top of rocker masseurs and ordered Eleanor quarter torches. Behind those flares, an extended Shelby-style trunk lid joins powerful fender flares to shade bright taillights and a bright Cobra badge. Beneath that badge, clear taillights illuminate a textured bumper, sculpted canopy and a small camera.

Lift the hood of the lightweight coupe and you’ll find the Coyote’s 5.0-liter box-turbo engine, DOHC that wrings easy horsepower into miles of pavement-scorching torque! At the top of the engine, a remote filter element feeds a satin air tube. On either side of the engine, long-tube Mustangs To Fear heads improve breathing. At the front of the engine is a vintage Air Front Runner serpentine motor with a state-of-the-art alternator, state-of-the-art AC compressor, and Power By The Hour Performance steering components. In front of these attachments, the beefy Derale radiator uses two electric intake fans to provide plenty of cooling. Quality details include billet tanks, American motorized wiring, and Mustangs To Fear hood supports. And the agile powertrain is very uncluttered, with Ford cam covers and a Shelby-branded hood that hides most of the factory silver mass.

Aesthetically, the underside of this old school horse has been restored to the same high standards as the clean engine compartment and stunning exterior. The modern mill uses the Ford Performance Coyote Control Pack to distribute the power to the smooth, 6-speed 6R80 automatic transmission. This drivetrain is driven by a Heidts PRO-G High Horsepower rear clamp, which wraps tubular control arms around adjustable billet coils. These components are driven by a Total Cost front section that is included with Pro-Touring, which directs the power of the sprocket and, you guessed it, billet coils and tubular control arms. At the ends of this $25,000 suspension, Willwood’s red 20-piston calipers clamp around a quadrant of grooved and cracked rotors. A stainless exhaust fills the loud Mustang To Fear mufflers between the H-tube crossovers and the side exit tips. Power meets pavement with American Racing Shelby Cobras, which rotate 245/45ZR17 Nitto NT555s in front of 315/35ZR17 Nitto NT555s. Items such as rugged subframe connectors, a Mustangs To Fear fuel cell and Mustangs To Fear stainless fluid lines provide both reliability and a flash.

Swing the doors and you’ll find a custom cockpit containing $20,000 worth of high-quality leather with French colored stitching. Front and center, sixth-generation Mustang GT buckets feature large struts under a thick Mustang Toe Fair rolling bar that is secured by Sparco 3-point harnesses. A monochrome dash hangs classic, clean telemetry above the ignition button and air conditioning controls. Fresh rugs float on cobra-inspired floor mats between metallic foot pedals, high-quality sound masking, and a leather-wrapped console topped with a Lokar transmission. The tunes are passed through a state-of-the-art Pioneer head unit, which blasts JBL’s 500-watt, 10-inch JBL, and JBL subwoofers.

The driver winds curves with a Billet Specialty steering wheel, which spins around the Flaming River tilting shaft. Behind the occupants, the custom-upholstered trunk raises the Optima’s battery pack laminated with Taylor’s paint against a polished fire extinguisher.
