Muscle Mustangs & Fast FordsEvents
All Carbon Fiber Shelby GT350R, and More
Icon Workshop’s Cars and Casino benefit was a charity event featuring awesome and inspiring Mustangs, Broncos, and more
The food trucks were awesome (can you say lobster roll?), as were the numerous makes and models of cars and trucks that were on hand for everyone to peruse. In case you’re not aware of the ICON Workshop, the company is well known for building all kinds of super badass cars and other vehicles such as the ICON Broncos that are enviable among 4x4 enthusiasts. Many of them are Coyote 5.0L-powered and use first-generation early Broncos from the 1960s and 1970s as a foundation. While all of the above was very well and good, we were naturally most interested in the Ford iron that was on display and most specifically about two Mustangs that happened to be there.
One was an Eleanor 1967-1968 era fastback built by Fusion Motorsports using several carbon fiber body panels. The other was a new S550 Shelby GT350R that was also fitted with carbon fiber panels, which are offered by Speedkore Performance Group.
As far as the projects in process by ICON, one of the shop’s Derelict line of patina-finished hot rods really caught our eye and you can see a few shots of it in the accompanying photo gallery. It’s a 1949 Mercury coupe that is powered by a Tesla Model S drivetrain. It may not be a Mustang, but man is it cool!
