1969 Anvil Ford Mustang

We got our first look at the 1969 Anvil Mustang at SEMA last year. The Pro-Touring pony car features the company’s carbon fiber body components from the front spoiler to the rear quarter panel extensions. The Anvil Mustang is more than skin deep, though, with a custom-built 520 cubic inch aluminum V8 under the hood as well as a high-tech cantilever suspension system, Ford 9-inch rear end, 6-speed transmission and Baer brakes. Anvil told us at SEMA that they planned to “drive the wheels off it” and from the looks of this video they have been true to their word.

Anvil recently headed out to Willow Springs Raceway with the crew from Hot Rod Magazine and put the custom ’69 Mustang to the test. Anvil admits that the car wasn’t built specifically to road race, but with 800 horsepower on tap we’re guessing it can move around the track pretty quickly. The video shows that the Anvil Mustang can be quite a handful as well, along with a great shot of the cantilever suspension system in action. You can watch the video below.
