This is a nicely built car. It's very attractive yet it was built to be driven. It’s an Absolute Blast to drive with the 5.0 HO under the hood, shifting through the gears, hitting the turns or easily cruising 70 down the Hiway. All this while the a/c keeps you cool and listening to the sweet tone of the exhaust! With that being said, I’ve driven and enjoyed this car very much over the summer. We’re more than happy to help answer any questions, send more photos, videos, etc. Being recently serviced, detailed and completing our 46 point safety inspection, this Steed is ready to roam! If you have any questions about this Mustang Restomod, please feel free to give us a call/email.
