Mustang Of The Day: 1965 Ford Mustang Resto Mod AKA “Vendetta”

Vendetta is a 1965 Ford Mustang Resto Mod custom-built by Scott’s Hot Rods & Customs in California, which has been featured in magazines such as “Modified Mustangs and Fords” and showcased at the 2013 SEMA Show.

This Mustang features a tubular chassis, custom suspension, a Roush 427 CI V-8 engine, and a variety of other personalized components. The exterior is finished with black and red stripes on a white body, complemented by 18×8 and 20×10 Billet Specialties wheels. The interior features personalized diamond-stitched red and black leather upholstery, and the driver is secured by Crow harnesses and a six-point roll-bar system.

Under the hood, there’s a formidable Roush Performance engine with eight-stack induction ports, iron block with 4-bolt mains, a Richmond 5-speed manual transmission, and a Moser 9-inch rear end. The front has independent suspension, and the rear has a Moser triangulated 4-link suspension system. The car is equipped with Wilwood disc brakes with 6-piston front and 4-piston rear calipers to clamp down on the 14-inch rotors.
