“Machstang” Perfect Example Of Resto-Mod, Wordplay

This 1971 Ford Mustang Fastback saw over 2,500 hours of labor to create and it shows from the road up.

The purpose built show car is said to have had, “every square inch of frame, body, suspension, interior and drivetrain replaced, modified or massaged” in route to becoming the Resto-Mod it is today. It features a custom Art Morrison chassis, a coilover 4-link rear suspension and a Mustang II front suspension. Under the hood the car is equally as extravagant with a “Vortech supercharged big-block 502ci Chevrolet power plant was installed and features Ram Jet fuel injection, aluminum oval port heads, a forged-steel crankshaft, forged all-aluminum pistons, a COMP cam and custom-built headers, all producing an estimated 725 net horsepower rating,” according to its Barrett-Jackson listing.

Some unique touches include a Corvette 6-speed manual transmission and rear lights molded from a a ‘69 Shelby Mustang, both of which give credence to its “Machstang” name. Obviously you have Mustang and Mach as in Mach 1 Mustang, but also mock as in “not authentic or real” because, after all, this is not factory restoration, but a Resto-Mod.

The “Machstang” will cross the block next weekend at Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas.
