Craigslist - Custom Coupe to Fastback
#1
Doing one of my searches on Craigslist and came across this listing out of Denton,TX. The side shot leads you to beleive it is a sportsroof, but look at this back shot. I assume this is a fiberglass body kit of some sort. Anyone else seen something like this before?

This reminds me of the 69 charger rear window but more extreme. Looks awesome and I've never seen something like this.

Yeah, it hard to tell if it is a modified fastback or coupe. Hopefully if someone buys it they realize it isn't factory.

If you squint it kinda looks like a pantera from the back.

Either way someone knew what they were doing, it looks insane.

That hump and ribbing on the trunk does make you think rear engine. Honestly though, I thinks my eyes would be hurting from squinting that hard to make that back end into a Pantera.

Yes, I was thinking "Fiero" when I saw the ribbing on the rear deck.

He says it's a mach1. What's with these people that call any 71-73 Mustang a mach1?

Looks to me like it started as a FB, and somebody took out the rear window, then fabricated the decklid and new rear window, and finished the inside of the buttresses. Wouldn't be terribly hard to do in either fiberglass or with sheet metal - doesn't look like there are a lot of complex curves there. The desklid decoration is probably a fiberglass hood scoop that's just attached for looks. Definitely something you don't see every day!

Well, it is a fastback (sort of)... and it does have the NACA hood... and it does have a Mach 1 grille. It could very well be a Mach 1. Have to see the VIN to know for sure, I suppose. But at least this guy is a lot closer to being right than the one with the "Coupe d'Mach 1" on eBay. LOL!
