COBRA JET 428 V8, 5SPD TRAN, FRESH RESTO, NO EXPENSES SPARED, CLEAN IN/OUT, WOW!
No one will ever mistake this 1967 Ford Mustang fastback restomod for anything stock. But for the few who don't see the paint, the wheels, or any of the other new aggressive touches, the race-ready 428 Cobra Jet V8 will teach them a lesson to take notice.
This could play the villain in any movie. The deep black paint on this coupe seems to absorb the sunlight. It's that kind of bad attitude and hard shine that will instantly get it recognized and remembered. The reason why this one is so well done is because the paint and body had the kind of money spent on it that people use for this whole restoration. We have receipts from Cobra Automotive Inc for over $20k in just the paint and body work... and this huge investment shows! Ford never made a body so straight, and so this rare fastback has the kind of creases that look like they could give you a paper cut. While the car is butter smooth, there is a grit to its attitude that tells you it eats its "secretary's car" siblings for breakfast. You see it in the wide hood scoop, blacked-out front end, hood pins, and blacked-out rear panel with smoked taillights. The black torque thrust wheels continue this dark attitude while also adding some Bullitt-level flair.
Inside there's nothing to get in the way of performance driving. The rear seats have been removed to save weight (comes with sale) and make way for the roll cage. The front seats are now modern ProCar racing buckets with Simpson five-point harnesses. Any coddling feature that would add weight has been replaced with race-ready toggle switches. As the driver, you get the grippy sports steering wheel mounted on a Flaming River tilt column. Beyond that is a full set of AutoMeter that look cool, but more importantly, give a precise readout about what's going on in this performance machine. To complete this go-fast interior, there's a Hurst shifter and a huge AutoMeter tach (after all – you're watching your revs the most in the quarter miles.)
Because people are going to want to peek under the hood, the monster motor looks terrific. Then again, it's kind of hard not to look great with all the right hardware radiating power from within the dark engine bay. You're looking at a 428 cubic-inch Keith Craft Racing Cobra Jet V8. It was assembled by Pierce Racing in Huntersville, NC. The fortified construction includes a fully machined and prepped block, ARP main studs, FelPro seals, balanced & polished crank, Federal Mogul rod bearings, Ford Racing timing set, Comp Cams hydraulic roller cam with roller rockers, FMC pistons & rings, and aluminum heads built by DSC Motorsports. Plus, it has the right go-fast upgrades like a Holley AED 750 four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, MSD ignition, and hand-crafted NASCAR-style headers. There is a ton more to this monster motor's investment, but we don't have the room to list it here – so call us for all the details. For now, just know the moment you fire this one up, it has the kind of thunder that makes lesser cars cower away. Handling all this huge horsepower and neck-snapping torque is a Tremec TKO600 five-speed manual transmission that was specially built by AMP Performance ($3,500 receipt) to go with the upgraded motor. This feeds the Ford 9" Detroit Locker rear end with strong Moser 35 spline axles. A build this intense also requires the right suspension upgrades. That's why you have a TCI Mustang II-style independent front suspension, reinforced frame, and TCI three-link rear. Plus, adjustable coilovers, Bilstein shocks, and a full Wilwood four-wheel disc brake package are all part of this fully-built Mustang.
Complete with build receipts and restoration photos, this is the classic that's not for the faint of heart or the Sunday driver. But if you're looking for the ultimate street villain to give everyone else nightmares, this classic Mustang is the dark horse of your dreams.
