For those of you who subscribe to Mustangs & Fords, I'm sure you are very interested in the government project of pg38 of the December issue. For those of you who haven't subscribe I strongly encourage you to as this will be an awesome article to keep up with. From the pictures given it looks like '67 or '68 Mustang Fastback. I have never seen or heard of anything like this being done.

You're kinda correct on that Dr. Who. I don't think I should give the whole thing away. Think what SVT would of done with a '67 fastback if they were around back then. What are your ideas.

Tounge in cheek answer is, if they were around in 67 they would have used 67 tech and built a 427 GT , but from what you imply from the question, how bout a 67 body on a new Mustang Cobra platform? They've done some neat stuff but so far the killer cars are just their playthings and never seem to get out to the public, same is true of other companies. I'm just jealous of the guys getting to build the car with factory support and then driving/thrashing them and not even have pay for the fuel or tires .

I dragged out that issue and saw what you were talking about. What do you find so special about this? I don't think it's going to be an ongoing series, just someone throwing a 'Roswell' spin on a car under a car cover and behind a chain link fence.

It is definitely an on going series. Dr. Who you are pretty good. Have any of you heard of someone putting the drive train from a new cobra, including the IRS, with the fuel injection and all the modern creature comforts in a '67 Mustang? I personally thought this was a awesome car. But to each his own.

Check out the web site for Mustang Central in Byron Georgia, they have done several of these swaps.
