Our friend Keith Strong, who has built some unbelievable Mustangs and other Fords for clients, including Ford Motor Company itself, has a new shop and a new Mustang build coming together we just had to share with our readers. Strong’s Ice Nine Group is now the aftermarket design and development arm of Sankuer Composite Technologies. Sankuer Composite Technologies produces custom carbon fiber parts like body panels, scoops, wings, etc., which Ice Nine Group utilized extensively in past builds. Ice Nine Group of course still handles one-off builds for customers and within the automotive aftermarket industry as well.

The Mustang is a 1969 SportsRoof owned by Steven Heinrich since 1983. He bought it to build and customize, but as with most of us right out of college, life got in the way. Now, 30 plus years later, Steven decided to finally build the SportsRoof of his dreams. Working with Keith the plan is coming together for a stout Mustang package that can handle, brake, and perform like a modern Mustang. The driveline features a 5.8L Shelby GT500 engine swap (where the project’s “Trinity” name comes from) that will be upgraded with a 2.9L Whipple supercharger. Along with the GT500’s six-speed manual transmission, Trinity will feature GT350R Recaro seating, one-off forged Rosso wheels and more. Suspension is all Detroit Speed, with an Aluma-Frame front and four-link 9-inch aft, and a Watson Racing FR500 style cage. We look forward to showing you the finished build right here on Mustang-360.com, so stay tuned, and in the meantime check out some of Ice Nine’s previous work at the following links:
