Velocity Restorations cut its teeth building some of the finest Ford Bronco restomods out there, all from the first generation of the now iconic model. It has since expanded its offerings to include amazing, high-dollar, heavily-detailed versions of the Bumpside generation Ford F-100. Thus, the next logical step would seemingly be to start giving The Blue Oval’s first-generation pony car the same treatment, and now, that’s precisely what has happened in the form of the Velocity Signature Ford Mustang, based on the 1967 and 1968 model years.
While there are many companies out there that do essentially the same thing, the new Velocity Signature Ford Mustang is far more than just a restoration or even a restomod. Rather, the outfit takes the beloved 1967-1968 fastback model, but essentially only starts with a VIN. Otherwise, these are basically brand new cars from the ground up, built to be the absolute best version of this particular model on earth, complete with its own custom, 3D printed, fabricated parts to boot.
On the outside, that includes finely applied BASF Glasurit paint with stripes available as an option, a vented hood, modern lighting, and, well, not much else – as the goal here is to retain the car’s already beautiful looks. The same goes for the interior, which retains much of its original charm, albeit with more comfortable upholstery, Vintage Air A/C, Dakota Digital gauges, a RetroSound radio, and additional sound deadening.
Mechanically speaking, the Velocity Signature Ford Mustang has been completely modernized, however, with the naturally-aspirated Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote underhood making 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, plus the 10R80 10-speed transmission and a Ford 9-inch rear end with 3.73 gears. The pony car rides on a brand new Roadster Shop chassis with an independent front suspension, a four-link rear, and both adjustable Fox coilovers and Baer brakes at all four corners.
As one might expect, the one real downside to the Velocity Signature Ford Mustang is its cost, as it starts out at a whopping $299,990. However, for those with the means and desire to own perhaps the perfect pony car restomod, it certainly seems like a compelling option.
