We often come across first-generation Ford Mustangs, but the one we have today is a cut above the rest and guaranteed to make you stand out. Present today is a true Frankenstein, and it looks like this 1965 Ford Mustang Coyote Franken-Stang.
When the legendary Ken Block released his first generation Mustang project through his Hoonigan brand, the automotive world stood still as the car powered through the streets. This 1965 Ford Mustang Coyote Franken-Stang matches the energy Ken Blocks "Hoonicorn" set and truly stands out from the crowd, the factory styling is out the door, and that's not a bad thing; everything has been widened, and the car's exterior sports a silver-steel finish. The unique exterior styling also includes a Front Splitter, Ford Truck Grille, Ventilated Deck Lid, and Baja Designs LED headlights. In terms of stance, this unique ride sits on a set of CCW 18x12" wheels providing a low-down ride with the right stance. The custom theme continues to this 1965 Ford Mustang Coyote Franken-Stang black interior, out with the leather, wood, and nickel, and in place are lightened elements mixed with tech. Upgrades on the interior include carbon fiber bucket seats for lightness, a Chromoly roll cage for added safety, a digital dash unit to monitor this car's vitals, and a Motec switchboard for function and added race car feel.
In keeping up with its personality, this 1965 Ford Mustang Coyote Franken-Stang also sees a change-up in what power it. Pop open the hood, and you will find not a brand swap but a 5.0L Coyote motor derived from a later-gen Ford Mustang. While that performance bump up would be sufficient for a good time, the current owner reports that the motor has a few upgrades, which include GT350 intake, throttle body, oiling system, a custom cold air box, Kooks headers, and a 3" center-exit dual exhaust system to better hear that V8 roar. The upgraded power is met by better handling; the current owner reports Penske coil overs, independent rear suspension, and 2020 Mustang GT350 subframes. Power is sent dramatically to the car's rear wheels through a 10R80 10 speed automatic transmission, ensuring crisp shifts at all times.
