Mastic to Metal

The Final Chapter – Mastic to Metal

The week brings to an end the long journey of Mustang from mastic to metal. The classic ’67 Convertible transforming from a filler and mastic filled rusty dangerous car, into a safe drivable classic that will turn heads wherever she goes. We have had many views of this car’s journey to date, alas, it’s time to say goodbye to an old friend we have grown to love and proud of what she has become, the now legendary “Mastic” Mustang. The owner came down to inspect her a little while ago and wanted a few little upgrades, those upgrades are now fully completed. The upgrades were quite large and resulted in her going back to the ramps. The single exhaust is gone and new twin exhaust system is now in place. The custom-made LED conversion kit is now installed and working correctly. The last little luxury was the wooden steering wheel instead of the old original white one. The results are amazing, the car sounds like she means business, and with the hood down will make those sunny days out something to remember. The lights upgrade means that she can be seen from behind safely. The standard lamps are fine for America, but over here the flashing rears can be a little difficult to spot. We are pleased to say that the road test was as good as we expected it to be. We took her for her MOT which she obviously passed first time round. The owner will be picking her up this week and we wish him many happy hours driving her. We will be a little sad to see her go, but there will be more.  We have uploaded a video of this Mustang starting up on YouTube here,  or you can go to the quick link below.

A quick recap where she was when we got her:

We have bought a stock of various gauges as they become available for various years and options. You can buy them of bid sites if you’re lucky but it’s a bit of gamble. Speak to us first to see if we have the new gauge you want for your car.


We were asked a while ago if we had any gas-filled shocks, we had a limited supply but we now have upped the stock to cater for this option should you wish to upgrade of course.
