1988 Ford Mustang Widebody – Coyote Swapped Pro-Touring Fox Body

December 17th, 2021

Thanks again to Shawn from Autotopia for finding this one-of-a-kind Pro-Touring Fox Body for our enjoyment. This exceptional restomod is well equipped to take on street, track or strip. C’mon and let’s get a closer look.

Under the hood is a 2018 model 5.0-liter Coyote motor. It has been beefed-up with such internals as ARP fasteners and MMR chain guides. Although the engine is (currently) naturally aspirated, it is built to accommodate a power-adder in the near future. The Coyote is pushing 500whp through a Tremec T-56 manual transmission with a McLeod clutch. It weighs approximately 3,000-pounds and is running E85 fuel. The longtube stainless-steel exhaust headers are from American Racing. The exhaust is 3-inch out to the crossover and then it necks down to 2.5-inch with Magnaflow mufflers.

The suspension is fully adjustable custom using aftermarket parts (primarily) from Maximum Motorsports. The rear end (independent rear suspension) is from a 2004 Cobra Mustang. It works well with the four-link setup.

The body modifications are substantial and feature a widebody kit from Maier. The extra width helps to conceal the 18 X 11-inch XXR wheels on all four corners. The front fascia is from Celine and the Mad Max front splitter is totally handmade.

The interior is more of the same with unique one-off pieces and custom altered aftermarket hardware throughout. It’s more of a cockpit than a comfort zone.

Time to take this beast to the street and see what’s really up.
