” Ford designers made sure every year of the first generation Mustang had plenty of visual sizzle. But it doesn’t get much better than this Grabber Blue fastback’s masterful combination of aggressive accents and well-placed trim. At the front of the car, a red white and blue mustang emblem hangs within the grille that hangs prominent high beams between traditional low beams, a thin bumper and crystal clear parking lamps.
Behind that grille, a stylish hood scoop leads the eye past silver wipers to like-new glass and bright stainless trim. Down the sides, the body panel alignment is perfect and flowing through it is the boss 302 decal. As you make your way to the back you’ll pass painted side mirrors, chrome door handles, and a moderate side scoop on the rear quarter. At the back of the car, a concave valence balances a second chrome bumper between familiar Mustang tail lights and the rear fuel filler.
Pop the hood and you’ll see how the build team eliminated the shock towers to make room for the 2011 Ford 5.0 Coyote modular crate engine that has been supercharged thanks to a Roush blower. Combine that with a custom cold air induction, and a SCT engine programmer and the results are a dyno verified 566 horsepower and 556 lb/ft of torque to the rear wheels. At the top of the block, Roush lettering rests on the massive supercharger that receives its air through a custom cold air intake that is mounted in the left front wheel-well.
As you move down you’ll see blue valve covers with the “Powered by Ford” lettering at the sides. In front of the engine, a custom aluminum radiator, with the help of an electric fan, is charged with keeping the 5.0 cool. The engine is powerful and can easily sit driver and passengers back in their seats, but as you will soon find out, this Stang is just as capable through the corners as it is in a straight line. ”
