classic vintage chrome fomoco gt350 restomod 351 v8 auto transmission blue
Dark blue always looks fantastic on vintage metal, but on this car, it’s really more of a disguise. A low-profile coupe with serious blasting powder under the hood doesn’t really need to advertise too much with obnoxious loud paint. Since most guys won’t expect much of a fight from an early Mustang Pony, it’s easy to take advantage of them once you stand on the gas pedal in this street brawler.
Blue-on-black is an awesome color combination that works perfectly on this vintage Mustang, and the matching black door panels, plush carpets, taut headliner, and fresh dash pad really dress things up inside. Other smart upgrades include a fat wood-rimmed steering wheel, a Lokar shifter in between the seats that manages the AOD transmission below, and a Sony AM/FM/CD that feeds a set of upgraded Sony speakers in the kick panels, package shelf, and a Visonik subwoofer in the trunk. GT-style factory gauges keep an eye on the 351 V8 under the hood, and we love that they’re all right in front of the driver where they should be, only augmented with a SunPro tach mounted on the A-pillar that keeps a close eye on the revs.
It drives beautifully with rack-and-pinion steering, upgraded struts and shocks, and a sway bar up front, and it stops with authority thanks to a thoughtfully added power front disc upgrade. Killer 15-inch American Racing Torque Thrust wheels look great and wear staggered 195/60/15 front and 235/60/15 rear performance radials with plenty of tread left. Fast fun in a universally loved shell, all freshly built only 6,592 miles ago.
