This stunning 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback isn’t your average classic muscle car.

Packing a supercharged 5.4-liter V8 engine from a 2008 Shelby GT500, this restomod is a force to be reckoned with on the road and the track.

Power and Performance Under the Hood

The heart of this beast is the iconic 5.4-liter Shelby GT500 V8 engine, pushing out over 500 horsepower. Paired with a T56 6-speed transmission, this Mustang is built for exhilarating performance.

Upgraded Suspension and Brakes for Precision Handling

For superior handling, the suspension system has been completely revamped with Ridetech tubular components and coilover shocks. Four-corner Baer disc brakes provide exceptional stopping power, while American Racing 200S “Daisy” wheels add a touch of classic muscle car style.

Luxurious Interior with Modern Touches

Step inside the Fastback and you’ll find a custom-crafted interior featuring plush leather-wrapped seats and a custom console. The classic dashboard gets a modern upgrade with Autometer gauges, keeping the driver informed and in control.

Vinyl Wrap Protects the Show-Stopping Finish

One of the most unique features of this Mustang is its exterior. Believe it or not, that stunning finish isn’t paint! The entire car is wrapped in a high-quality vinyl film. This clever choice protects the owner’s investment, allowing them to enjoy pushing this Mustang to its limits on the track without worrying about scratches or damage.

The owner recently acquired this fun 1967 Ford Galaxie Convertible and is eager to transform it into a dependable and stylish family cruiser. While the car’s interior and bodywork, completed 5-6 years ago, are in satisfactory condition, he has a vision for several upgrades to enhance its performance, comfort, and safety.

Under the Hood Enhancements

The current 390 engine is experiencing leaks, prompting the owner to consider replacing it with a Ford crate engine. He’s leaning towards a new 347 stroker engine, aiming for a horsepower range of 300-400, while maintaining an automatic transmission. To improve fuel efficiency and reliability, the V8 Speed and Resto Shop Team will be installing a Ford 4R70W overdrive unit.

Focusing on Comfort and Safety

Since this Galaxie is intended for family cruising, the priority is to create a comfortable and safe driving experience. We’ll be adding Vintage Air air conditioning for enhanced climate control, along with a new radiator and heater core to address any existing leaks. Upgrading the power steering pump and lines is also on the list, ensuring a smoother driving experience.

Addressing Electrical Concerns

The V8 team has noticed that the headlights, brake lights, and turn signals appear dim, requiring some updates to the system.

Enhancing the Look and Feel

For a touch of classic style, the owner desires a new vintage-looking steering wheel. He’s also open to recommendations for suspension upgrades, aiming to improve the car’s handling without compromising its original character.

A Work in Progress

The owner acknowledges that the pictures he’s provided are just a starting point, and he’s open to further suggestions as the project progresses. With a clear vision and the assistance of qualified professionals, his Galaxie is well on its way to becoming a reliable and cool cruiser for the whole family to enjoy.

This isn’t your average classic car restoration story. This is about a beloved piece of history, a 1951 Ford F1 pickup truck with a unique past and an exciting future. And the V8 Speed and Resto Shop is honored to be a part of its journey.

The truck, affectionately nicknamed the “firetruck” by its owners, Bloomsdale Excavating, has been with the company “forever.” It sat proudly in their museum, a cherished reminder of their rich history. But now, the time had come for this classic to shine once again. They wanted to bring it out of retirement and give it a new purpose: gracing parades and community events.

That’s where owner Dean and the V8 Speed and Resto Shop stepped in. Recognizing the truck’s significance, the team was eager to help. While the F1 didn’t need a full restoration, it did require some TLC. The paint needed a touch-up, and the electrical system needed rewiring to ensure safe and reliable operation.

For V8 Speed and Resto Shop, it wasn’t just about fixing a truck; it was about preserving a piece of history and reviving a community treasure. They meticulously addressed the paint and electrical issues, ensuring the F1 would be ready to handle the demands of parades and events.

This project is more than just a restoration; it’s a story of community, family, and shared history. Soon, the “firetruck” will once again be a source of pride for Bloomsdale Excavating and a delight for the community. And V8 Speed and Resto Shop is proud to have played a role in bringing this iconic truck back to life.

Stay tuned for updates as we share more about this special project! You might even see the F1 shining bright in a parade near you.

We were honored to meet David Sullivan at the 2023 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals and help unveil his amazing 1968 Ford Torino GT 428 Cobra Jet, a family heirloom with a history that’s as thrilling as it is sentimental.

David Sullivan, known for his roles in television and film, unveils the heartwarming narrative behind this exceptional muscle car. A car show isn’t merely about machines; it’s about the profound stories woven into them. Watch as David shares the emotional journey of his father purchasing this unique vehicle brand new in ’68, only to sideline it for decades to prioritize family.

The Torino, ordered with a rare all-black exterior and red interior, was a symbol of speed and passion. However, family responsibilities led to a pause in its journey until David took the reins, restoring it with a dedicated team from Billups Classic Cars.

Witness the touching moment as David and Kevin Oeste unveil the once neglected Torino GT, now gleaming in the spotlight, a tribute to a father’s legacy and a son’s devotion.

More than just a muscle car show, the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN) is a place where stories come to life.  David’s Torino is more than just a car. It’s a symbol of family, love, and the choices we make in life. His journey to restore it is an inspiring testament to the power of perseverance and the memories we hold dear.

But this video is just the beginning. We want to hear your stories too!
