1967 Ford Mustang "The Boss" Is a Furious Fastback

We recently covered the sad story of a 2015 Ford Mustang that had been gifted with the body of a '67 pony and was prepared to embrace its Eleanor side. Coming from the octane lunatics over at B Is For Build (the shop that introduced the world's first Lamborghini Huracan manual swap), the screen name of the project, which was close to completion, was the one that saw it being confiscated over trademark issues. And such a tale makes one wonder: how could a build recover from such an adventure? Well, the 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback sitting before us, which comes from Dave Kindig, brings a pretty solid answer.

That's right, we're talking about the builder behind the Bitchin' Rides TV Show, who completed this project back in 2009, with the process taking 15 months - as explained on the Kindig-It Design website, the vehicle landed with an Eleanor conversion. Nevertheless, as you can see in the image gallery above, the new identity of the pony is quite different.

And, before zooming in on the details of the machine, we have to mention this traded hands at Barrett-Jackson's Scottsdale 2019 auction, grabbing a solid $250,000.

Now, while the body panels of the original, as well as the spirit of the Mustang, obviously live on, the list of custom goodies that went into this build is endless.

For starters, this features an Art Morrison chassis, which brings an unibody take. The vehicle rides on monstrous 24-inch wheels at the back and 20-inch units up front. As it has been the case with at least some of Kindig's other builds, the rear wheel wells had to be raised in order to accommodate the said rolling goodies.

The hood was stretched, while the gaping front end looks like it could take in all the air in the world. Then again, such assets are required, since motivation now comes from a 418ci V8 (6.85-liter). Working with a Procharger (think: belt-driven turbo), the unit churns out 950 ponies. And yes, that Zoomie exhaust leaving the car just after the front wheels is functional.

Oh, and let's not overlook the manual tranny, which is a six-speed supplied by Tremec.

We must also mention the fastback-special custom side "rear" windows, the dovetail trunk lid, the fully-integrated bumpers, as well as the flush taillights and door handles (the latter also make for a signature piece).

Stepping inside, we find a plethora of fabricated panels, together with Basketball Orange leather, while the features include power windows and a JL Audio system, among others.

The gearhead put a lot of work into the custom paintjob and decals, while the new nickname of the car is clearly visible above those cheeky exhaust tips.
