65bodyresize1 171100 Build Your Own 65 Ford Mustang

When I was a kid, I worshiped the 1960s Ford Mustangs. I made every model of them I could get my hands on. I could still probably trace the outlines of one in my sleep and tell you what was on the plastic sprues. So, I have to say, the idea of buying one of these full-size body repros of the 65 (for $15K) and then adding my own hunted down engine, axles, interior, etc. looks like a fun, albeit ambitious, project. There’s a healthy market of reproduction parts for these ‘Stangs, so amassing the parts wouldn’t be hard. I just wish it came on sprues. [Thanks, Dan Woods!]
