For many Mustang aficionados, 1967 represents the pinnacle of the first generation’s design, as the aggressive bodywork and larger engine options predated the prime muscle car era. As such, modifying the iconic pony’s looks can prove a pretty chancy endeavor, with even the slightest misstep amounting to inexcusable sacrilege.
In other words, it takes a keen eye and a careful touch to accomplish what Behance artist Mikhail Sachko has done here with this particular fastback. Artfully transformed into a mean Mustang shooting brake, it now wears a lengthy roofline that extends down to the rear decklid. What’s more, Sachko has imagined the car with some extra-wide wheel arches and slammed suspension, barely making room for a set of Dunlop race slicks. Alongside its doors, the fastback sports a set of angry side-pipe exhausts, an addition that’s bound to make some noise considering what’s under the hood. Or, rather, what’s jutting out from it. For even though Sachko hasn’t shared the exact powertrain, the enormous blower out front tells you everything you need to know. Decked out in worn black paint, white stripes, and a pair of red tow hooks, the result is a pony that doesn’t take no for an answer.
