The Story

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang,
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.

Since the original documents for our 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback are long gone, lost in a stream of owners over the last 48 years or so, we wanted to recreate some of the documentation our car would have originally been supplied with.
