Ever see a Ford Mustang on BBS LMs?

Yeah, neither have we. Surprisingly, it’s not too bad. In fact, we might even go so far as to say we kinda like it. The size of the meat is just right— kudos to whoever put the car together for exercising restraint and not slapping on the biggest damn wheels they could find.

Bit of ‘restomod’ action going on with this car, sure – it was one of Ford’s display models from the 2003 SEMA, after all – but we think it hits mostly the right notes. If we had to guess, we’d bet the car probably comes across a lot better in the metal than it does in these sanitized in-studio press photos, where it’s undoubtedly impressive but still comes off as slightly precious.

  1. I wouldn’t kick it out of my garage.

  2. The 65-66 fastbacks are among the prettiest cars ever made, IMO.

    The hood bump really kills it for me on this one. Not opposed to modifying the hood, but this one just looks like an afterthought “oh, crap…the horns are too tall!”

    The build was obviously meant as a showcase for their Cammer crate, but I’d have added at least a single export brace to keep that engine bay from folding in half.
