Legendary custom car builder Chip Foose is cooking up something grand to debut at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas: a 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1, nicknamed “Mach Foose”, with a 2010 Mustang GT underpinning the body. The wheelbase is lengthened by three inches, the entire front-end structure redesigned with new strut towers and a cleaner engine bay, and the rear quarter panels replaced with those from a 1970 model.
Why from a 1970 car? The panels are a bit wider and more shapely, allowing them to accommodate the wider rear wheels and tires requested by the client who’s commissioned the car.
We don’t have all the details on this work-in-progress, but according to website AutobodyNews.com, the car will wear Baer brakes all around with EradiSpeed rotors, and the exterior will be coated in BASF Refinish Glasurit products. Kotto Auto Glass furnished the custom rear window for the Ford Mustang Mach Foose, cutting it to shape from a RAM 2500 van window.
The 1971 Ford Mustang Mach Foose will debut October 31st at the BASF Refinish America booth on the show floor of the 2017 SEMA Show. We can’t wait to see the final product.
