Producing jaw dropping cars comes down to imagination, and as a builder, you’ve either got it or you don’t. For Eckert’s Rod & Custom shop of Northern Oregon, a customer brought them a project on commission that required heaps of imagination, as they were tasked to build the one-of-a-kind Ford Mustang Mach Forty, and truly knocked the project out of the park.

With the customer’s desire to meld the classic design cues of a 1969 Mach 1 with the modern performance characteristics of a 2006 GT40, Mike Miernik came through with an awesome concept model before David Eckert and his team fully executed on the build. The crew at Hardison Metal Shaping sculpted the beautiful body lines based on the design sketches before Eckert dumped a 4-Liter Wipple on mid-mounted 5.4-Liter Flex Fuel V8 of the mashed up Mustang, a powertrain capable of delivering 850 hp to the rear wheels. Easily seen as a crowd favorite and best in show winner, the Mach 40 was also featured in Gran Turismo Sport after its debut at SEMA in 2012.
