Late Model Restoration 2013 Mustang Project

When the Mustang fanatics over at Texas-based Late Model Restoration aren’t selling performance parts, they’re generally getting their hands dirty with some sort of project car. Since completing their custom Mustang RTR track car and Project Six Appeal last year the company has been looking for their next vehicle to put under the knife, and they’ve recently found it in the form of a brand new Deep Impact Blue 2013 Mustang GT. As LMR admits, the car is already very impressive in stock form, fitted with the Track Package that includes front Brembo brakes, Torsen differential and upgraded cooling systems, but they also know there’s always room for improvement.

First up on the to-do list for ‘Project High Impact’ was to upgrade the suspension system. LMR wanted to improve upon both the handling and the looks of their 2013 Mustang so they turned to Ford Racing Performance Parts, who they’ve used several times on past projects, for a set of adjustable dampers (part #M-18000-C) and 1-inch lowering springs (part #M-5300-P). To fill up the wheel wells LMR once again went browsing though the FRPP catalog, and picked out a set of staggered 19-inch forged wheels wrapped with Nitto Invo tires.

The result, LMR says, is that the Mustang has a much sportier ride without feeling to harsh or stiff. The combination looks fantastic as well.

We’ll update you on ‘Project High Impact’ as it progresses over the next several months. For now, you can see photos of the car in the gallery below.
