KEITH CRAFT 409CI WINDSOR MOTOR, T56 6 SPEED TRANS, SUSPENSION UPGRADES & MORE!
If you have a 1969 Mustang shell, what better way to build the ultimate pro-touring fastback than to give it a Boss 302 look with a big, honkin' V8 under the hood? This handsome silver attack craft is every bit as potent as you'd hope, with a Keith Craft 409 cubic inch V8, 6-speed gearbox, a road-race-ready suspension, and a very tasteful black leather interior.
If there's a better-looking muscle car than the 1969 Boss 302, I don't know what it might be. And when it's clad in a deep, sophisticated, and super slick silver paint, you get a car that will attract attention when it's parked, yet cruises through traffic with a low-profile. Built by Distinctive Motorsports in Plano, TX, it uses faux Boss 302 graphics, including the blacked-out hood (no shaker-they weren't available in '69), provide a subtle contrast against the bright silver metallic paint, but quite honestly nobody's going to mistake this car for a real Boss. The door handles were shaved, most of the emblems were deleted, and even the mirrors were deleted, so it has a very smooth, slick look that gets better and better the more you look at it. It also received a blacked-out grille and tail panel, Shelby/Thunderbird-style taillights, and bright chrome bumpers, just to keep it in-period. Good thing this car's fast, because it looks supersonic!
A quick glance inside reveals an interior that was reworked for pro-touring duties, which typically include lots of corners. Mustang experts will, of course, spot the two-tone leather buckets as well as the custom billet aluminum steering wheel and absolutely stunning Auto Meter gauges in the dash. Fresh black carpets, custom two-tone door panels, and the original fold-down rear seat give it a highly finished look that's a few steps removed from stock. You'll note beautiful custom touches added by Branded Customs, including a trick stereo system that stashes Focal speakers throughout the interior that look and sound awesome. There's subtle ambient lighting that's a very modern touch, plus a Dakota Digital control system for the A/C and cool buttons on the center stack to manage the door poppers, windows, and other functions. The trunk is finished with more custom parts, including a cool enclosure for the amplifiers and subwoofers, none of which was cheap or easy. Nobody cut corners on this expensive build!
While the Boss 302 was potent, the Keith Craft 409 cubic inch Windsor under the hood today is more than a match for its carbureted ancestor. Fortified with a Holley 750 CFM carburetor, Edelbrock intake manifold, MSD ignition, and a whole host of other go-fast parts, it more than lives up to the bodywork's awesome look. It's a neat fit in the vintage Mustang's engine bay, and with a vast aftermarket, it's easy to make big horsepower. A billet accessory drive with serpentine belt and a big aluminum radiator manage the cooling and charging system, while the A/C uses R134a refrigerant. The transmission is a T56 6-speed manual liberated from a Viper feeding a custom 9-inch rear end. A Mangaflow stainless exhaust system gives it that instantly-identifiable Mustang exhaust note, and with subframe connectors it feels substantial on the road. Brakes are discs at all four corners, neatly camouflaged by very cool 18-inch Billet Specialties wheels with 245/40/18 front and 275/35/18 rear Nitto performance radials.
Full of tricks, this very impressive resto-mod is both fast and comfortable, the perfect blend of looks and technology. It lives up to the Boss 302 look, and will earn fans everywhere it goes. Call today!
