If this 1965 Ford Mustang's bright Ferrari Fly Yellow paint isn't attention-grabbing enough, all you have to do is pop the hood and show off the Paxton supercharged 289, which has been punched out to a stout 347 cubes. Add in a beefy suspension and some giant disc brakes and you have one of the coolest early Mustang resto-mods we've ever seen.



There's a pretty extensive magazine spread on this car, and given the eyeball-popping Ferrari Fly Yellow paint, that shouldn't be surprising. Starting with a clean coupe, everything was taken apart, massaged, smoothed, and refinished to give you the incredible car you see today. It's still early Mustang, there's no doubt about that, but with the neatly integrated Shelby-style hood and side vents and a lot of shaved trim, it takes on a very purposeful look. Fit and finish are quite good, certainly better than when these cars were new, and there's still plenty of chrome, so you don't have to worry about its identity getting erased. No stripes, spoilers, or other add-ons were needed to give it a trick look, although there is a neat flip-up fuel filler cap on the rear panel, which balances the Shelby hood up front. A mesh grille and a functional cut-out in the lower valence give the front end a race-ready look that really works well on the neat little coupe. This is a really impressive car.



At a glance, the interior looks pretty stock, well, except for the bright yellow door panels and dash. However, the seats are stock Mustang buckets, there's no console, and while the gauges are modern, the instrument panel is standard Mustang. Heck, even the woodgrained steering wheel is something you would have seen in 1965. However, the upgrades are there to help make the car work better, so you have a full array of Auto Meter dials, including a pair on the A-pillar, so it's easy to monitor the blown small block under the hood. A Pioneer AM/FM/CD/Bluetooth stereo system uses kick panel and package shelf speakers plus a pair of subwoofers with trick enclosures in the trunk to fill the cabin with sound. New carpets, billet pedals, and a 5-speed shifter help with the complete, ready-to-go look. The trunk is a show piece all by itself, so make sure you open it up at shows, because people are really going to want to see this!



The engine is a 289 cubic inch V8, bored and stroked all the way to 347 cubic inches. But just in case that isn't enough for you, there's a Paxton Novi 2000 supercharger that pressurizes the stout small block with nine pounds of boost. Don't worry, the steel Scat crank and forged I-beam rods don't mind and the aluminum Edelbrock heads help build plenty of horsepower. A full roller valvetrain from Comp Cams gives it that wicked sound and an MSD ignition system lights it all up. Lots of shiny chrome and billet aluminum under the hood make it look ready to show but with a new Tremec 5-speed manual transmission and new driver friendly clutch, you're probably going to want to go instead of show. A 9-inch rear end with 3.55 gears inside is plenty for the supercharged motor and it's been upgraded with giant Wilwood disc brakes up front, tubular A-arms, and a rack-and-pinion steering system to keep it all under control. 17-inch in the front and 18-inch in the rear Foose Torque Thrust wheels fill the fenders with 245/40/17 and 285/35/18 Nitto performance radials and adjustable rear air shocks.
