Description:

So what do you call this incredible convertible, a 1954 Ford Sunliner that''s a Mustang GT underneath or a Mustang GT that looks like a Sunliner? The engineering involved in melding the two so seamlessly is extremely impressive, and the result is a car that looks like an old-school custom yet drives like a modern muscle car. This pro-built Sunliner started with a super-straight desert ragtop, stripped it bare, and rebuilt it from the ground up. The arrow-straight sheetmetal is the result of a 10-year build and you can be certain that serious work went into getting it to look this good. There''s not a ripple or wave in the bodywork, and the subtle modifications blend invisibly with the original details. Note the frenched headlights, shaved door handles, and beautifully sculpted quarter panels with molded-in fender skirts. Then there''s the ruby red paint that seems to glow from within, an old-school trick that involves a special blend of pearls and metallic. The pinstripes were laid down by none other than Fast Eddie in 2004, and include the flames on the front and beautiful details on the smoothed deck lid. Custom taillights, beautifully re-chromed bumpers, and a trick grille are just a few of the upgrades that went into the car, but you''d need a stock one next to it to find everything that was tweaked, which is the mark of a truly great custom. If you''ve ever driven a 5.0 Mustang, you''ll find yourself right at home behind the wheel. It''s not 1954 inside anymore, thanks to Mustang bucket seats and a full dashboard that was seamlessly integrated into the old Ford''s cockpit. They worked overtime to get OEM levels of fit and finish, and everything from the Mustang gauges to the HVAC system with ice cold A/C works like they should. The door panels are a custom blend of custom stitching and Mustang armrests, and it''s worth noting that all the power features work, including power locks and windows, a custom chopped power folding top, and the powerful AM/FM/CD stereo system with remote and speakers stashed throughout the interior. Even the back seat emulates the Mustang''s split folding rear seats. That trick top was chopped two inches, yet it seals up like an original car and even the windows have proper chrome frames. The trunk is still massive, even with subwoofers, a battery, and a spare tire tucked inside. The Mustang''s 5.0 liter V8 needs no introduction, and still uses factory fuel injection for maximum reliability. The torquey small block remains a great runner and is virtually indestructible, so they wisely left it pretty stock and just dressed it up with a polished intake. All the factory parts are there, including the vacuum hoses, brake master cylinder, and accessory drive, and a big copper and brass radiator with two fans keeps it cool. Shorty headers feed a dual exhaust system, which snakes past the Mustang''s AOD 4-speed automatic transmission and around the 8.8-inch rear axle with 3.27 gears inside. Handling is sharper than you''d expect, because it also carries the Mustang''s front and rear suspension setups, along with front disc brakes. Classic Centerline aluminum wheels are an appropriate choice for a hybrid like this, and they carry 205/60/16 performance radials at all four corners. Builds like this are some of the most impressive cars we see. The level of OEM fit and finish is hard to beat, and when they''re engineered this well, you know that you won''t have headaches down the road. Call today!
