Q: Ever see the GT40 reskinned to a retro Mustang (Mach 40)?

CORRECTION: I think it's technically a restomod b/c they started with the 69 Mustang vs. a Ford GT chassis. The wrecked Ford GT contributed the drivetrain but not the chassis. Mods, please correct if you want.


This came out a few months ago but I just saw it this morning.

I was never a fan of the retro tbird or even the retro mustangs but this one actually looks pretty clean. I like how it stretched and lowered the original Mach 1 Mustang profile.

What do you guys think of it?

It's kinda cool, I think I could appreciate it more in person.. Don't like the wheels. I would rather have a 69 Mach but still cool. The more I look at it the more I like it.

I've seen that before and admire the craftsmanship but I'm not too into the rest. I'd Prefer an unaltered 69 Mustang body as well, chopped tops were never my thing and the enlarged wheel openings really throw the proportions off.

I kinda like the wheels actually, sort of an homage to the 68-69 styled steel wheels
