The Story

To celebrate the launch of the 2015 Ford Mustang and its 50th anniversary,
we are restoring a classic 1967 Mustang Fastback, but with a modern twist.

There are few names in the car world that evoke such emotion. And even fewer that can boast the same degree of longevity.

The Ford Mustang was voted Europe's most desirable car in 2013. Not bad for a car that wasn't even officially on sale there.

For 2015, however, things are different. The new Mustang is Ford's most adventurous 're-imagining' of what the Mustang means in today's world. And the big news is: it'll be coming to Europe in right-hand-drive form, for the first time in 50 years.

To celebrate, we're taking a worn-out 1960s original Mustang and restoring it from the ground up. But this isn't just a paint job and an engine tune; we'll be upgrading many of the key components to modern-day equivalents.

We'll be documenting the restoration from start to finish, but we'll also be following along as Ford gears up to release the Mustang on a whole new generation.

This is Mustang Reloaded.

Mustang Marti Report

23rd Oct 2014

For most classic Mustang owners, obtaining a copy of your car’s Marti Report is something of a rite of passage.

The Marti Report shows the exact specification of the car at the time of ordering, the date it was built, the plant it was built at, and even the name of the original dealer. (more…)

Happy Birthday, Bullitt

17th Oct 2014

Forty six years ago today, Lieutenant Frank Bullitt roared off the silver screen and into the history books.

As nearly everyone knows, Steve McQueen played Bullitt, a police detective charged by ambitious politician Walter Chalmers (Robert Vaughn) to protect a key witness in a case against The Organisation. (more…)
