Hot Apple Red over Psycho Silver Ford Mustang has Powerful 351 Windsor Engine

 
 
Ford made the 1967 Mustang to stand above its competition more than 40 years ago. Ford designers wanted it to be more muscular and powerful than the Pontiac Firebird, Mercury Cougar and Plymouth Barracuda.

In 1967, the Mustang was designed to hold a big block engine. In 2010, Tom Cope of GT Motorsports designed his modified 1967 Mustang to hold a 351 Windsor engine.

The hot apple red over psycho silver is one of the first things you notice. The car seems to move with the sunlight as it hits the ten coats of Dupont Hot Hues. "The paint is incredible," said Cope. "I also had the black leather in the interior stitched in red to match."

Cope has used K&N air and oil filters for thirty years. “I would not use anything else on the cars we build,” he said. “K&N is cost effective because the air filters are washable and reusable and provide excellent filtration and engine protection.”

The GT Motorsports 1967 Mustang was a feature vehicle at SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) in Las Vegas, Nevada last year. It will be on display at the Grand Nationals Roadster Show in 2010.
