Unique 1967 Ford Mustang Copperback goes up on auction
Ringbrothers has spent many years perfecting this 53-year-old Ford Mustang Fastback restomod, which is now up for grabs in the United States.
The pony car received its first dose of attention in 2007, landing with a revised dorsal line and trunk and hood made of carbon fiber (courtesy of Gemini Technology Systems). Its side air intakes were moved down and reshaped, while the body kit was amended with a number of fine details. A striking Glasurit Copper Burnt Orange Metallic paintjob juxtaposed against rare dark-grey accents rounded things off with flair.
The ride sits on 19-inch three-piece iForged wheels and relies on Baer 6S brake calipers for proper deceleration (read on to see why). Upholstery Limited did its best to refine the cabin in a matching orange-and-black gamma.
Last but by no means least, the stock engine flew out and a massive 7.0-liter Roush Performance V8 took its place. The supercharged motor received electronic injection, aluminum cylinder heads, separate throttle bodies, and a Magnaflow exhaust. A five-speed manual gearbox was tasked to deliver the momentum to the rear wheels.
The asking price is not public.
