Lightly modded 1971 Mustang Mach 1 Redo
#1
http://www.jefflilly.com/gallery/muscle-...index.html

Very nicely done. Tasteful mods. I think the car still keeps the overall feel of the original while making some cool changes. I'm gad to see this car sans rear spoiler or aftermarket louvers.

Personally - I would have preferred the owner/builder not adding side stripes to the Mach 1 since it did not come with them. Side stripes can look cool on some bodystyles but mach 1's also look great (tough) without them - with the correct lower body brightwork molding still intact. On this car, they blacked out the brightwork. Dodgy It works if one is going to run the stripes. I'll admit the blacked-out molding treatment goes along well with its subtly modded theme. Oh yeah - Grabber Green could have been super cool, too. LOL

Either that or my car's crap! Hehe

Nope - go check out all the 'progress' pics. I posted this one a few years back, and they went crazy with getting all the gaps and body work absolutely correct, using a lot of the techniques and tricks that Scott has shown us on his cars.

This is a damn nice car - I can't wait to see Scott's '72 all said and done!

They did such a great job with the gaping, it almost looks computer generated...but I know it's not

Nice car. I would be afraid to drive it. Makes mine look like a piece of s**t. Sad
