A Crazy 1965 Ford Mustang Wagon Conversion

A Crazy 1965 Ford Mustang Wagon Conversion
If you’re into classic Mustangs, but aren’t a stickler for accurate restorations, then check out this customized pony car. This unusual car, dubbed “The Pony Express,” started out life as a regular 1965 Mustang, and has a custom-fabricated station wagon tail in place of the original rear window and trunk. That rear section is made from welded sheet metal, and not only adds storage space, but elongates the roof – making it ideal for carrying surfboards.

$1.3 Million Buys You This 2000-Mile 1971 Barracuda
If you’re a muscle car fan, you could do a whole lot worse than a classic Plymouth Hemi Cuda, and this particular specimen is as good as they get. This incredible 1971 Barracuda looks amazing, decked out in Rallye Red and black, with that big Shaker hoodscoop, matching rear spoiler, and big HEMI graphics on the doors. It’s also got that fantastic 426 HEMI V8 with dual 4-bbl carbs under the hood, and just about every available option, including such rarities at the time as power windows.

Epic 1971 Ford Bronco Has Coyote 5.0 V8 from a Mustang
Like many of you, I am a big fan of the old school, really small Ford Broncos from the early ’70s. They look like they might flip over in a strong wind, but man do they look good.

General Lee Stunt Jump Kills a Charger and We Are Sort of Bummed
Growing up, I absolutely loved The Dukes of Hazzard. I liked to ride my three-wheeler on two wheels just to be more like Bo and Luke. At the time I didn’t think that the Charger the guys drove was a particularly cool car aside from the fact that they drove it.
