And smart hobbyists who like actually driving their vintage hardware are beginning to buy slick, fully sorted pro-tourers like this SEMA-featured Mustang. After all, these classics were built to be seen and enjoyed on the open road, not garaged and dusted with an air compressor. And with a 600 horsepower 427 that's centered in a Chris Alston chassis and one of the most stylish bodies ever created, this incredible drop-top will have you smiling and waving all day long! Looking for a unique road warrior that's as livable as it is lust worthy? With this awesome Ford, you won't even give the word original a second thought! BODYWORK/TRIM The beneficiary of a professional, rotisserie restoration that was conducted by Tom Argue Design of St. Petersburg, Florida, this substantial looking pro-tourer was originally conceived as a 2011 SEMA showcase vehicle. The project:http://tomarguedesign.com/builds/ford-mustang-convertible/ began with a complete dismantling of the car's solid body, affixing that body to a large rotisserie and conducting some minor sheetmetal repairs. When that sheetmetal was shaped and virtually seamless, priming and block sanding blazed a trail for lustrous Silver 2-stage and a Soft Gray roof. And, after that 2-stage had been polished and wet-sanded to a mirror-like shine, this nouveau pony emerged as a rich custom that champions classic style and world-class workmanship. Ford designers made sure every year of the first generation Mustang had plenty of visual sizzle. But it doesn't get much better than this convertible's masterful combination of aggressive accents and well-placed trim. At the front of the car, a blackened grille hangs a prominent Mustang emblem between modern headlights, clear parking lamps, a body-matched bumper and a traditional chin spoiler. Behind that grille, a striped hood leads the eye past custom billet heat extractors to Satin Black wipers, like-new glass and textured window trim. At the sides of that hood, textured sport mirrors, Shelby-style quarter vents and familiar Ringbrothers door handles add detail to a carefully shaved profile. And at the back of the car, a Shelby-style valance hangs a second body-matched bumper between a custom Mustang call-out, LED taillights and a billet fuel filler. ENGINE Hoist this Ford's snug-fitting hood and you'll find a fully detailed, 427 cubic inch small block V8 that, thanks to Keith Craft Performance of Arkadelphia, Arkansas, creates 600 dyno-proven horsepower! At the top of the Jet Black mill, a painted and polished air cleaner funnels wind in to a coated Quick Fuel carburetor that's fitted with blackened lines and a small Marshall pressure gauge. A resulting air/fuel mixture makes its way from an Edelbrock Victor Jr. intake to Keith Craft Performance heads, which hide under textured valve covers. When those heads flood the engine's cylinder banks, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor sequences spark through beefy Keith Craft Performance wires while spent gases roar through long-tube JBA headers. The brutal engine's cooling is provided by a big Ron Davis radiator, which rides between two electric puller fans and a faux carbon fiber cowl. Charge is provided by a modern serpentine drive, which spins a fresh alternator beside convenient power steering and cool air conditioning. And overal
