Mustangs at Peterson Automotive Museum

Curator of the museum talks about this history of the Ford Mustang and also the two special Mustangs down below in the vault, a Shelby GT350 and customized George Barris Mustang.

Nice 1992 Ford Mustang GT Fox Body

1992 ford mustang gt fox bodyCheck out this one-of-a-kind 1992 Ford Mustang GT, some might say it’s not unique, but if you look at the odometer it will be. This 1992 Fox Body Mustang GT only has little over 40,000 original miles on it. Everyone dreams of having a Fox Body back in the 80s and 90s, even to this day it would be sweet to own this Fox Body Mustang. The 5.0 liter was a very powerful engine back in the day. The owner says once this Fox Body Mustang is all waxed and shined, it definitely turns heads.

Custom 2004 Saleen S281 Supercharged Mustang

custom saleen s281 mustang photosThis is a pretty unique custom Mustang, someone has taken a 2004 S281 Saleen Mustang and slapped a fifth generation S-197 front end on it. The whole package looks great, even the custom hood, looks very aggressive and add some muscle to the Mustang. At first when I was looking at the pictures, I was thinking this was a newer Mustang looking at the chin spoiler and grille, but when I saw the side scoops that hinted to the old SN-95 Mustangs. The two tone red and black paint scheme is pretty fly as well.

Awesome Custom 2013 Mustang GT 5.0L

custom 2013 mustang gtThis yellow custom 2013 Mustang GT 5.0L is downright sinister. I’m usually not partial to a yellow paint job, but this one I’ll make an exception for. Definitely one of the coolest customized Mustangs I have seen to date. I love how the halos look cruising right near dusk. This photo was taken at the 2013 Woodward Dream Cruise, the world’s largest car show and car cruise. Anyone looking to see some really neat customized Mustangs, you’re sure to see some here.

Photo Gallery of 2013 Woodward Dream Cruise

2013 woodward dream cruiseGot some more goodies for you from the 2013 Woodward Dream Cruise. Some stunning photos of modern Mustangs such as a SVT Cobra Mustang, Boss 302 Mustang, Mach 1 Mustang, Fox Body Cobra Mustang and many more. It was a true honor to attend the 2013 Woodward Dream Cruise. If you’re not familiar with the history of Woodward, the street was a place where you could let loose your frustration from the wars and meet other war veterans out on Woodward. Many young car enthusiasts today don’t know of the past, the linkage between war veterans and their muscle cars. I’m sure many of these muscle cars gave war veterans something to live for, before and after they came back home. There’s something totally American to get in your muscle car and go cruising down Woodward.

More Video Footage of 2015 S550 Ford Mustang

Some more video footage of the 2015 S550 Ford Mustang has hit the web. This time we get front to back, side to side video footage of the 2015 Mustang in action. You get to hear the exhaust note from the 2015 Mustang as well. Take a close listen, are they run on the turbocharged four cylinder or the 450 horsepower V8? Think Mustang enthusiasts are getting tired of the full-body camo and ready for the full version of the new American muscle car.

Jack Morris Custom 1969 Ford Mustang

jack morris1969 ford mustangWell it looks like Jack Morris still has a little Detroit muscle in him after retiring from the baseball and the Tigers. This is his stunning custom 1969 Ford Mustang you see photos of. Everything about the custom Mustang is picture perfect, I absolutely love the custom wheels and custom paint job. Neal’s Custom Metal transformed his vision of a dream car into a real thriving piston pumping muscle car Mustang. Jack Morris said he “wanted something truly unique that pushed the Pro Touring envelope. He wanted a big motor, big brakes, and big tires in a car that could be driven long distances on the freeway and at the track.”

I think the final product not only impressed him, but his baseball fans and Mustang muscle car fans around the world as well. You don’t see muscle cars so perfectly formed out of sheet metal, this is no easy job. Originally everything on the classic Mustang was all rotted beyond repair, only the roof skin could be salvaged. Believe it or not there is no unibody structure left on this car, they cut ut it all out, and built a custom chromoly tube-frame chassis in its place.

After acquiring a an aluminum Windsor block from Dart, Morris sent the engine to Roush Racing for the transfer event into a 454ci monster that makes 622 horsepower. They used AFR 225cc cylinder heads and a COMP 248/254-at-.050 solid roller cam. To help keep the power to the ground they used a 9-inch rearend fitted with a Detroit Truetrac differential, transmission is a manual Tremec T56.

Best Mustang Ever Created: Lee Iacocca Mustang

2009 lee iacocca mustangParts for Mustang blog has considered all the Mustangs ever created over the years and decided to nominate the 2009 Lee Iacocca Mustang as the best Mustang ever created. You might ask why? I know there’s are a lot of different custom Mustangs out there. There’s Saleen Mustangs, Roush Mustangs and even Steeda Mustangs. So what makes the Lee Iacocca so special to me? I like Lee Iacocca’s custom Mustang bass because it looks so perfectly smooth and pristine. Everything about the car, has taken both classic looks and modern looks of all the Mustangs ever created and established the clean perfect Mustang.

The rear end looks great without a spoiler and I love the square exhaust. The custom chrome Lee Iacocca wheels have added a nice touch. The front looks great as well, the grille without a Mustang emblem things things up a bit, but still shows off American muscle. The special edition Mustang reminds me of an old movie called Flight of the Navigator. Remember that flick from the 80s, the Mustang looks so smooth and sleek, it looks like the UFO craft from the movie.

Underneath the hood is the underpowered 4.6-liter V8 that we all hate, but hey it has a roots supercharger to boost up the horsepower to 400hp, so it’s not that bad. Only 45 of these Lee Iacocca Mustang where created back in 2009, which makes the Mustang even more special to me. If I had to pick, I would choose this one to have my garage.
