1966 Fastback on the Outside, 1997 Mustang Cobra Underneath
James Graf’s 1966 Mustang Restomod: A 1966 fastback body on a full 1997 Mustang Cobra chassis makes a vintage Mustang with all modern comfort and safety features
Joe Greeves sent us this video feature of yet another awesome Mustang from the Ancient City National Mustang Show, and it looks like it was one of the more radical cars at the show.
Parked next to his step-brother Todd Hogan’s yellow 1967 Mustang coupe, James Graf’s 1966 fastback is all 1997 Cobra under the modified sheetmetal. The restomod features a stock 4.6L DOHC and T-45 drivetrain from the Cobra, as well as the rearend, ABS brakes, and all the goodies. It even has functioning air bags, with the passenger bag mounted cleverly in a custom panel in the dash. Check it out. James’ and Todd’s dad, Richard, helped him with the build, and we hope to bring you a full feature on the car in the near future. What do you think about the sequential, full-width, LED taillights they used?
