Description from the current owner:
“This 67 Mustang was built with passion and attention to detail by a private car enthusiast who had extensive experience building numerous cars for friends and family. This particular build was a special one as it was dedicated to him and his wife who both had a passion for mustangs.
He began with a 1967 Mustang California black plate fastback that was in dire need of restoration. Rather than restore it to stock standard he decided to go all in, no expense spared to build a favorite classic of his, a Bullitt replica.
While 67 isn’t the correct year for a Bullet replica, you can easily look beyond that when you see the amount of time, effort and quality that went into this build.
Starting with a strip down to bare body and chassis, everything that was needed was replaced or repaired, coated and sealed. Manufactured stiffening frame was powder coated and reinforced with sub frame cross members to help support the torque the car would produce.
The engine is a custom built 351 Windsor (not a crate engine). All of the necessary goodies were added to make a reliable 400+ hp engine that runs on pump gas (see build receipts in photos). Five speed Tremec TK600 transmission was matched perfectly to the rear end for torque and quick acceleration in low gears, and low rpms at high speeds for long hauls. (2500 @80mph) Hydraulic kevlar clutch. Polished radiator keeps everything cool. FAST fuel injection makes the car start and run like a modern car with a twist of the key.
Suspension was all updated and while the car handles incredibly well, it’s also supple and gives for a comfortable ride. Rack and pinion steering with tilt column. Power steering. Chris Aston’s Chassisworks chassis components. Front coilover conversion. Custom rear axle housing with 3:55 gears. Coilover 4-link rear suspension. Wilwood 4 wheel disc brakes.
He was very particular about the sound in this car and wanted to match the sound of the original 390 Bullet. After going through three exhaust systems, he finally found the current system and have it all welded and powder coated for a nice clean seamless system. Best of all the sound of the car from the interior is like being in the real car from the movie.
Over the top professional sound system was incorporated and took the place of the rear fold down seat. Steel frame was built to house and protect the components and added to the stiffening of the chassis from the interior. Interior pillar vents were sealed off for a lean smooth look, but left as stock on the exterior.
Custom housings on all speakers were made. Kenwood Wireless Bluetooth AM/FM radio phone system makes hands free calling excellent as it comes through the cars sound system. Overall sound is incredible when playing music.
He was also particular about the look in the engine bay and went to great lengths to hide all wiring and to organize all pipes, lines and tubes in a very clean manner.
The trunk was no exception, as it is finished out in the same high end carpet materials that was used throughout the main interior. The battery was located at the rear and comes with a keyed shutoff switch for theft prevention. A professional shroud was made to cover the battery when access is not needed.
Vintage Air A/C blows cold and cranks on hot days so driving is always a pleasure.
This car turns heads everywhere it goes, and is definitely a great pleasure to drive.
If you have ever wanted a 67 fastback that was built right, this is your car. I purchased it 4 years ago as my first car was a 67 fastback, but it was a junker. I always wanted to experience having a 67 built with today’s technology and this guy built it. There may be other Bullet replicas out there, but look closely to the details and what was built into them. A big motor and 5 speed aren’t the only things that get you a true pro-touring build label.
Only approx. 3,060 miles on the build.”
