Mustang Of The Day: 1969 Ford Mustang Fastback “Modern Muscle”

This 1969 Ford Mustang Fastback restomod, known as “Modern Muscle,” underwent an extensive transformation that demanded over 2,000 hours of craftsmanship, resulting in an estimated cost of $278,000.

Under the hood, it boasts a Ford Racing supercharged 5.4L crate engine, enhanced further with a Kenne Bell supercharger. The power is harnessed through a Tremec 6-speed transmission. It’s also equipped with a Shelby 500 radiator and FAST engine management system.

Rolling on Modern Muscle’s signature 19 and 20-inch wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich tires, this Mustang handles like a dream with SSBC power disc brakes and Heidts suspension on both ends, backed by a Ford 9-inch rear end. It features power steering and a SONY stereo system, while the interior, sourced from a 2008 Mustang, boasts custom black leather and suede, Auto Meter gauges, and a stainless gas tank.

Aesthetic upgrades include frenched-in tail lights, 1970 Mustang front fenders and grille, and a Boss 429 hood scoop. Finished in DuPont Silver and Black paint with a striking Grabber Blue pinstripe, “Modern Muscle” is a visual masterpiece, representing the epitome of automotive craftsmanship.
