Introducing the Wild Flared 1965 Mustang: A Restomod Done Right!
Prepare to be amazed as we delve into the exhilarating world of the first-generation Mustang. This iconic pony car holds a special place in the hearts of Ford loyalists, and it’s not hard to see why. From its humble beginnings as a “secretaries car” to its awe-inspiring transformation into a Pro Street monster, the Mustang has captured the imagination of automotive enthusiasts across the country.
Whether it’s the classic charm of a concourse restoration or the jaw-dropping builds seen at car shows, the original Mustang continues to inspire generations of car lovers. But it was Ken Block’s Hoonicorn that truly pushed the boundaries of what these classic body designs could achieve. And now, a remarkable creation has emerged, paying homage to the radical Hoonicorn – the 1965 Mustang!
Fortunately, AutotopiaLA had the privilege of documenting this stunning beauty. Just one look at the image of the 1965 Mustang and you’ll be captivated by its sinister looks. Combined with its small-block power, this restomod is a force to be reckoned with. Let’s dive deeper and uncover the extraordinary details that make this Mustang truly exceptional.
Under the hood of Alex’s creation lies a powerhouse of an engine. While some enthusiasts may choose to stick with the original inline-six or opt for the classic V8 sounds of the 289, Alex went a step further. He decided to infuse this Mustang with a punch of power by fitting it with a 9.5-deck engine stroked to a whopping 408 cubic inches. This naturally-aspirated engine produces an astonishing 600 horsepower, ensuring that this car delivers an absolute thrill on the street.
To handle such power, the Mustang had to undergo a series of enhancements. Upgraded suspension, wider tires, and custom flares were added to not only cope with the increased power but also to improve its overall performance. The rear suspension was custom-fitted with a four-link setup, allowing for effective transfer of power to the pavement. With 20×12-inch rear wheels neatly tucked beneath custom flares, this Mustang effortlessly blends power and style. And to ensure it can come to a halt in an instant, Wilwood brakes have been equipped on all four corners.
But the transformation doesn’t stop there. A restomod of this caliber demands attention to every detail, including the interior. Alex took upholstery to a whole new level by creating a fully custom interior, encompassing the seats, door panels, and center armrest. Bathed in a soft blue backlighting, the interior exudes a modern touch while staying true to its classic roots. And with digital gauges adding a contemporary flair, no detail was overlooked.
The term “restomod” is often thrown around casually, but this 1965 Mustang goes above and beyond. It’s not just a work of art; it’s a masterpiece that seamlessly integrates stunning aesthetics with peak performance. Once the small-block engine roars to life and the spine-tingling exhaust note resonates through the 3-inch exhaust system, prepare to have your senses overwhelmed. This Mustang is not just a car; it’s an experience you won’t soon forget.
In conclusion, the Wild Flared 1965 Mustang is a testament to the enduring allure of the first-generation Mustang. From its origins as a classic “secretaries car” to its evolution as a Pro Street monster, this pony car has captivated the hearts of Ford loyalists. Inspired by Ken Block’s Hoonicorn, this restomod takes the Mustang to new heights with its sinister looks and small-block power.
