Mustang 50 Years Old and Back On Top of the Empire State Building

Mustang turn 50 years old this year and is one of the best-selling sports cars in the U.S.  It’s now back on top as Ford re-enacts the publicity stunt that they use to help launch the model.

This a great looking custom. I might of not been so straight forward with the Mustang headlines/front end. See the video below!!!

 

The automotive community is good at giving back. We love to find a good cause and raise some money to benefit it. So to benefit a children’s hospital in Canada, Total Cost Involved, Ford Racing, and many others got together to build a one of a kind 1956 F100 pickup.

The Snakebit F100, is a blending of classic F100 truck style, with modern technology. Wayne Halabura from Ford was instrumental in getting the project off the ground, and bringing all of the right suppliers together to make it happen. The truck was assembled in just eight months.

Under the hood is a supercharged 5.4 liter engine, the same as what’s found in 2007-2012 GT500 Mustangs, backed up by a TR3650 six-speed transmission. The wheelbase has been stretched by five inches thanks to the Total Cost Involved chassis. There’s also a Currie Enterprises nine-inch rear end with 3.73 gears in the back.

Donald Frey, Designer of the Original Mustang, Dies at 86 – Jalopnik

Few cars have made the lasting impact that that first Mustang made. It created a new genre of car, where we took a giant engine and plopped it down into a chassis that wasn’t made for it. Thank you. The 65 Mustang is the car 

Curb Weight 9/15/2013 – Mustang 2015

The Mustang turns 50 and there is special cars in the works.

They will have have turbo charged 4 banger models for the first time since the Fox Body SVO stangs.  They’ll also have independent rear suspension.  The charged 4 cylinder could top out at about 300 HP…pretty cool!!
