Product Description

We found this CJ Mustang in the canyons of the Texas panhandle. It was part of a father-son project that according to the father, ended when the son discovered girls. When we found this gem, it was obviously begging to be finished and desperate to be back on the road. It still had the tough guy image but somehow seemed sad. Check out the original pics of the car when we found it. We couldn’t say no, so Smittys to the rescue!

The Smitty’s crew has over 600 man hours on this project and no detail has been left out. It is in the final stages of assembly and will be ready to test drive in the next few days. This Mach 1 Cobra Jet Mustang will not disappoint and is in need of a good home! Give us a call or come by and check it out!

Highlights: The Paint was restored to the original factory color. The Ram-Air upgrade has been added.  All the brake components from the master cylinder to (and including) the front disks and rear drums have been replaced with new.  The upholstery is all new, upgrade to deluxe and color changed to black.  The front suspension has all been replaced with new. The factory AC system has been replaced and converted to R134.  All window and door seals have been replaces with new.

For more information about what we've done, keep scrolling. Its a long list...

LEGEND:  D=Driver, P=Passenger, F=Front, R=Rear
