We have been graced by some amazing project Mustangs. Some are now long gone but definitely not forgotten. Whether they are still here or have been retired and sold off, there is one thing that is certain – no LatemodelRestoration.com Project Mustangs have never been trailer queens. They all see regular track time that includes road race courses, drag racing & even an occasional auto-x time.
Our latest project Mustangs include our Bondurant Cobra that features a 5.0L Coyote Engine Swap and our 2013 Mustang GT, AKA Project High Impact, that features a Ford Racing Whipple Supercharger. We also have a few project cars that have been around for a while such as our 2011 Mustang RTR Race Car and our 1988 Mustang GT Convertible, AKA Project Introvert. Our project Mustangs have been great product research tools and have served as an instrument to bring you some of the latest and greatest products.
As we gear up for the 2015 Mustang’s release, we figured what better way to say goodbye to the S197 platform than building a one last project car! If you have followed any of our previous project cars you have noticed that they have all been standard transmissions. This time around we are starting with a 2014 Ford Must... more
I know you have all seen the Craigslist and Forum post about a Fox Body Mustang that reads something like this: Fox Body Mustang Cheap -- Won’t Start. Many times these types of projects can be a nightmare but sometimes they can be a diamond in the rough. That is what we found in Project Blue Collar. The wiring, interi... more

As with all our project Mustangs, our 2013 Mustnag GT, AKA Project High Impact, has been a test mule for many 2013-14 Mustang parts we sell. This project got its name from the Ford color Deep Impact Blue. Project High Impact is a Premium model that is fully loaded with the Recaro seat option, Track Pack (Brembo brakes,... more
Our 2011 RTR Mustang started off life as a Brembo package, Kona blue Mustang 5.0L. We started out our build by installing a Ford Racing Handling Pack, Powerslot Rotors, Hawk HP Plus Brake Pads all the way around and a set of RTR Wheels and Nitto 555 Street Tires. These modifications greatly improved how the car handled... more
1993 was the last year the Mustang was offered with the Special Service Package and the last year it was ordered by law enforcement agencies. I came across this one in December of 1999; I was on the hunt for a new ride after my 1988 GT met an untimely end. It belonged to Scott Springer, who is now our General Manag... more
As many of you out there know, owning a Mustang isn't just about having a car to drive back and forth to work, school or to a car show on a Sunday. All of us here usually can't keep our hands out of the parts "cookie jar" we call our warehouse. One of our top sales guys, Lee C., has been daily driving his 1989 Mustang ... more
It has been an extremely fun ride with Project Six Appeal, our 2011 Mustang V6 project car. What started off as a car you would find on the front line of your local rental car agency, quickly morphed into a sinister hotrod that upset many 5.0 and GT500 owners at the road course and left many scratching their foreheads ... more
We’ve said it before, the Fox Body Mustang has proven to become todays 32 Ford. You’ll find today’s hot-rodders installing virtually any engine combination you can imagine into these cars. I’ve seen everything from a Duramax to a Cadillac 500 in a foxbody Mustang. The options are endless, thanks to the 1979-1993 Mustan... more
All good things come to an end. Such is the case with our 2011 Race Red project car. As Scott's personal car, this Mustang served us for almost 2 years as a test bed for products, as well as a fixture at events and shows. The 2011 Brembo-packaged, premium GT was transformed over its term as project car from stocke... more
Project IntroVert is our convertible Fox Body Mustang project. We have done some serious installations to help bring this Stang back from the grave. Too often this is that project that gets put into the corner and forgotten about. That doesn’t mean we don’t bring it back to the top of our project list from time to time... more
