This spectacular 1965 Mustang Fastback owned by Ryan Venturine and built by Scott’s Hotrods n’ Customs of Oxnard, CA was easily one our favorites of the 2013 SEMA Show, as it ticked off every box for a well done restomod. The modified body panels have all been custom-fabricated out of steel – nothing was done in fiberglass – and the subtly chopped roof (1.25 inches) and stretched rear quarter panels give the car a truly unique look. Justin Padfield, the shop’s owner, tells us that more than 100 individual body modifications have been done to the car and all of the vents are 100 percent functional.
The ’65 Fastback has the performance to back up its looks, too. Everything sits on a custom tube chassis built by the shop, and a Roush 427 FE V8 sits under the hood with 660 horsepower and 610 lb-ft torque at the rear wheels. The engine is mated to a Tremec 5-speed transmission, which routes power to a Moser 9-inch rear end. An AFCO coilover suspension system, Wilwood disc brakes and a Unisteer rack & pinion steering system all add to the car’s performance credentials. Inside is a full SCCA-spec roll cage and completely custom interior finished in leather and suede.
