If you have built more than one project car, you always want to push the next one to a higher plane than the last. That was definitely the case for Sam Anderson, who set out to see just what kind of build he was capable of creating. As you can see, he was capable of fusing two iconic Mustangs into one project-car masterpiece.
Obviously, the basis for Sam’s latest build was the 1965 Mustang you see here. An undeniable classic, this Mustang is still revered for its style, but not so much its performance. In the annals of Mustang performance there are a few milestone moments in the Mustang history books, but the car that started the horsepower heyday we are still living in today was the 2003 Cobra.
“I wasn’t really a big fan of older classics until I moved here to North Carolina and met a friend with a real nice ’69 Camaro,” Sam confessed. “That’s when I decided I wanted to build a badass hot rod. I had just the car in mind. A friend of mine in Wisconsin, where I’m from, had this ’65 fastback we actually tinkered with back in high school. It had been sitting ever since in his back yard, so I made a deal with him for it.”
