Neat restoration that combines classic and modern elements

ONE-OFF This muscle car is the result of a restoration of Terry Lipscomb in collaboration with Eckert’s Rod and Custom. Yes, they have managed in making a neat restoration that successfully combined the classic body of the 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 and a modern engine taken from the 2006 Ford GT40 in a new car figure. Then, they gave name to these modification results as the 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 40.

When viewed from the front, there seems to be nothing strange about the restoration of the 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1. However, if you notice again, the stern of the car is longer than usual. This is because these Mach 40 installed its heart in the middle. Yes, this machine is placed right behind the seat, so it looks like a supercar.

With the replacement of the engine position, this causes the rear of the car to increase by 1,090 mm. Not only move the engine position, but also replace the Mustang's engine. The Mach 40 is now equipped with a 5,400 cc DOHC Ford GT V8 engine that uses aluminum block cylinders and a series of other upgraded so it has a Wipple 4 liter super charge along with drive by wire throttle.

In addition the motor was converted to a flex-fuel system. The base horsepower can be dialed in, literally there is a dial control in the car, from 600 to 850 hp. It also has auto and manual traction control.

From the car's exterior, it has a classic and elegant appearance with gray color selection. Then on the bumper is given chrome accents and there is also a pair of hood scoops for more aggressive appearance. While for the legs, there are the Schott custom rims sized 18-inch on the front and 19-inch sized at behind which gave the car's beautiful appearance. The selection of those rim design also raises the classic aura of these Mach 40.

In addition, on the side there is also the air vent in both sides which are a characteristic of the 1969 Mach 1 body. Then to the rear, the Mach 40 is also equipped with a retractable rear spoiler. Also on the stern is equipped with the default SportsRoof.
Not only the exterior, the interior of the car is also changed in a more modern style. The combination of gray colored Alcantara material and red genuine leather looks gave different accents, which perfectly covers the dashboard, door trim, upholstery, and ceiling. In addition, the instrument cluster is also made in vintage style and on the cabin also equipped with Pioneer's entertainment/nav system. *** [EKA [26082018] | FROM VARIOUS SOURCESECKERT'S ROD AND CUSTOM | MUSTANG360 | MOTOR1]
