Of the ancillary items available, perhaps air conditioning is the most welcome and the least expected. A/C in a race car, you ask? You betcha. Keeping the driver comfortable is one of the best investments for performance.

Customers can order the car, as seen here, or the branded parts to assemble their own from Dallas Mustang Parts' new Retro-Mod series. The DMP staff is even talking about customers sending classic Mustang coupes to build into Terlingua cars. Each will carry an ID plate pop-riveted atop the Ford VIN on the driver-side inner fender panel.

First, we have Terlingua 1966. What's next? Stay tuned.
