Auction Block: 1969 Mustang Fastback ‘Muscle Rat’

Jul 16, 2018

Category: Rides

Most of the time, the cars we pine for are stunningly gorgeous inside and out – with no detail left unconsidered. But, every once in a while, we come across what might be called a ‘rough gem’ – something that defies conventional standards to become something beautifully ugly. That’s exactly the case with the 1969 Mustang Fastback ‘Muscle Rat.’

Built by the folks at Stallion Autosport, this pony car turned up at their shop mid-restoration – just a hodgepodge of parts and an unfinished exterior. But rather than give her a complete makeover, they decided to leave her weathered exterior as is and focus on the good bits inside. That meant dropping in a 340-horsepower 306ci Ford small block engine sandwiched with heads off a GT40 and mated to an automatic transmission, and adding a Holley 600 carburetor, an Edelbrock Performer intake, Flowmaster mufflers, Hedman Headers long-tubes, a TCI torque converter, and more. They also lowered the stance, added a sway bar, and swapped in axles from a Boss 302. See: beautifully ugly. Technically this is the shop car, but we bet the right price would convince them to let her go.
