Not too sure about this one.

Looks like someone recycled some Lincoln MK VI parts.

Not saying that I like it, but it's more appealing to me than the Sonny & Cher cars.

It took a lot of work, too. All the craftsmanship looks great.

That's what I noticed. They did a great job, but not my cup of tea.

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

Looks like an older owner who misses his 1956 T-Bird..... To each his own I guess.

It is well done, but they probably shouldn't have done it. (My first reaction was "hideous").

One of the thing that I find amusing is the Ghia emblem from a Mustang II.
Did the owner try to 'upgrade' his Mustang to a Mustang II?

It may not qualify as a bad idea, but what in the heck kind of air cleaner is that?

Whew..... Not my cup of tea. It would look alot better if it was not in a 4 X 4 stance.... Wonder what the color looks like outside? Pictures make the color look a bit odd. Bet it looks better outside.

It's in Houston. I may need to jump in the J-code and take a trip down there.

I'm guessing this air cleaner isn't stock either? Good thing it's on a 6.

Wonder why they painted the interior side of the doors orange? Makes the interior look funny.
That modern style grille looks OK though on a restomod.
