Inside West Coast Customs: Most Amazing Mustang Yet?
In 1967 Mustang faced its first serious competitor, the Chevy Camaro, so this model had to be powerful enough to keep up with this competition. So Mustang’s manufacturers made the car bigger, faster and tougher.
The increased body size allowed Ford to put their first big-block engine in a Mustang. This optional 390-cubic-inch 6.4L V-8 motor was capable of producing an impressive 320 hp. The car could reach 0-60 mph in only 7.4 seconds and had a top speed of 115 mph.
Furthermore changes to the design made the car more muscular looking. Large, concave tail lights and a roofline running all the way to the rear trunk lid contributed to the 1967 Mustang being one of the most beautiful cars ever made.
But compared to the 550 hp and the ability to reach 0-60 mph in 4 seconds the 2012 Mustang has, what’s under the hood in the ’67 model is not quite as exciting. What do you do? You take the entire body of the ’67 model and put it on a 2012 chassis.
And just when you think it doesn’t get any better than that, West Coast Customs proves you wrong. Not only is this car beautiful and fast, it is also completely decked out with the latest technology: subwoofers, GPS, Xboxes, and all sorts of other things not found back in the day. On top of that, the whole windshield can display a Heads-Up Display like jet fighters use.
