1967 Ford Mustang Fastback Obsidian

Making a classic muscle car seem even angrier is no easy task–take the Ford Mustang, for example. Named for the wild, untamed creatures of the American frontier, these cars already go hand-in-hand with raw power and style. There’s also a looming risk of overdoing it with something like an oversized spoiler or an unseemly paint job. And that’s why Autoworks International’s Obsidian Mustang Fastback is so impressive. The custom touches don’t detract from the classic styling–they enhance it.

Built in the company’s El Cajon, CA facility by Matt Couper, the Obsidian is equipped with a 392ci fuel-injected V8 engine with twin Rotrex superchargers and twin custom intercoolers, a Tremec TKO 600 5-speed transmission, and a 4-point hidden roll cage and NASCAR-style belly pan–you know, in case something goes awry during you sub 4 second sprint to 60 mph with the 847hp and 750 ft/lbs of torque. The interior hosts a slew of updates as well from the handcrafted color-match dashboard and two-piece door panels to the heated Recaro seats. Honestly, it would probably be easier to list the non-custom touches on this savage. The vehicle will be hitting the Barret-Jackson auction block on June 23rd. [Purchase]
