2006 Ford Mustang Stallion by Qphacs 2006 Ford Mustang Stallion by Qphacs

For the 2005 Mustang, Ford pulled much in the
way of design influences from the 1969 and
1970 Boss series and Mach 1. Although the
exterior was decidedly retro, the underpinnings
were entirely new for the first time in 25 years.

The new chassis structure used MacPherson struts for
the independent front suspension and a three-link live rear
axle. Stopping was handled by power-assisting vented disc
breaks front and rear. Power came from either a 4.0-liter
single-overhead cam (SOHC) V-6 rated at 210 horsepower
or from a 300 horsepower version of the SOHC V-8.

Custom car builder Chip Foose saw the Mustang shape as
an excellent starting point for his own take on the
legendary American pony car. Although Foose retained the
basic Mustang shape, he changed the look by redesigning
the front and rear fascias, grille, rear lighting and hood.
He also added C-pillar ducts, revised side marker lights
and a new rear spoiler of his own design.

To alter the stance of his new "Stallion", he changed the
springs and shocks and fitted 20-inch Foose wheels with
sticky BF Goodrich tires. He also stiffened the chassis and
beefed up the brakes. Although the engine wasn't altered
internally, output was increased to 325 horsepower by the
use of a high-flow air filter and free-flowing exhaust system
from the catalytic converters back.

This, the very first Ford Mustang Stallion, numbeer 001,
was built and shipped to the 2006 Barrett-Jackson
Scottsdale auction, where it was acquired by the
Hendricks Collection


Gateway Auto Museum, Gateway, Colorado.

I'm not a fan of the revised nose of the Foose Stangs, but the paint job is beyond wicked! The paint jobs he did on Overhaulin' were always insane.

Well, it could be a lot worse, lol.
They always did such a great job with the
cars on overhaulin', and then they'd always
put huge wheels with thin little tires on the
cars and ruin it...
The paint was always great!
Thanks for the :+fav:s on this and [link]
