1967 Ford Mustang Custom by 360 Fabrication

I spotted this unique 1967 Ford Mustang at the DuPont Registry booth at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2013. DuPont Registry is a magazine where people advertise high-end and exotic cars for sale – sort of like an AutoTrader for millionaires.

This black stallion comes all the way from Beautiful British Columbia in Canada, where it was built by 360 Fabrication. This car has a lot going on with it – it’s half show car and half pro-touring car. The grille, wheels, and air ride are all show, but the rest of the car is all “go!”

This one-of-a-kind Mustang rides on an Art Morrison chassis and a full digital air ride suspension. The wheels are custom 20-inch Vellanos concealing 14-inch Wilwood brakes.

The body has several modifications including exaggerated front fenders and a clamshell hood with power assist. In the engine bay is a 520 cubic-inch V8 making 700 horsepower, thanks to a 150-shot of nitrous oxide. The car also has a 5-speed Tremec transmission and a custom red and black interior with a high-end audio system.

Overall, it’s not a bad looking car. I can appreciate the amount of custom work that’s gone into it. If you’re interested, the car is still for sale in the DuPont Registry. The asking price is $467,000 dollars.

Now, wait just a minute here! Did I just say four hundred and sixty seven thousand dollars? Yes, I believe I did. This is a very nice ’67 Mustang, but are you seriously telling me it’s worth more than every other car I’ve written about this week? The Stuban Concepts 1969 Camaro I just wrote about also rides on an Art Morrison chassis and has a big block Chevy motor and an arguably more tasteful interior and exterior and 10,000 hours of build time…is this car really worth $302,000 MORE than that car?

Is it really worth more than the Ringbrothers’ Mach 1 which rides on a built-from-scratch frame? Is it really worth more than the C1RS Corvette, which has won some of the most prestigious awards in the hot rod industry? Is it worth more than a beach house in Florida? I think the answer I’m getting at here is: No, it isn’t.
