The video maybe a few years old but it’s worth revisiting this incredible machine and what went into making it.

For those who don’t know, the The Villain is a custom built 1968 Ford Mustang. Built by Jason Engel and his amazing staff at Classic Recreations in Yukon, Oklahoma. The Mustang Villain is powered by Ford Racing’s 420-HP all-aluminum DOHC 5.0L Coyote engine, which will be mated to a Tremec T-56 Magnum six-speed manual transmission through a Centerforce DYAD.

With only a year to go before the 50th year anniversary of the movie Bullitt, it’s very fitting that the long lost 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback has been found. In a Mexican junkyard of all places!
