Twelve Years Of Work Turned This ’66 Mustang Into A Jaw-Dropping Pro-Tourer: Video

While the rest of us fail to ever really start on our kooky passion projects, there are people in the world like Mike Maier, the owner of this 1966 Ford Mustang pro-tourer, grabbing headlines with the things they’ve created using nothing but hard work, determination, and ingenuity. (And buckets of cash, presumably.)

Mike Maier and his superb Ford Mustang were recently the focus of a “Daily Transmission” from motorsport lifestyle brand Hoonigan – a brand famously associated with pro rallycross driver and DC Shoes co-founder Ken Block, who knows a thing or two about transforming old Mustangs into high-horsepower performance machines. Maier, who owns a suspension shop, started work on his ’66 Ford pony car some twelve years ago; today, it boasts an awe-inspiring list of modifications that make it a true force to be reckoned with on both track and street.

The list includes a Roush Yates NASCAR motor with 750 horsepower and an 8,700-rpm redline, kept lubricated by a 5-gallon dry-sump system, and a unique pushrod suspension system with swappable cams made by Maier himself. There’s plenty more besides, but those are easily the highlights.
