It’s a little known fact that back in 1964 there was an independent rear suspension (IRS) designed for the Mustang by Carroll Shelby’s crew. It never eventuated, most probably due to budget constraits but the Original Crew who worked on the car has wondered all these years how well it would have worked.

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. Check it out!

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! Two cars were used during shooting of the film. While one was purchased by a crew member, the other […]

*Cringe* It seem the Ford Mustang is cursed, and here is another video that adds to that notion. Take a look for yourself. If you hate seeing beautiful Mustangs damaged by incompetent people then you may want to look away. © 2017, 67mustangblog. All rights reserved.
