Anvil 1969 Ford Mustang

One of the cars we were most looking forward to seeing this year at SEMA was this 1969 Pro-Touring Mustang built by Anvil. The company built the car to display its new carbon fiber parts for the 1969-1970 Mustang, and the result is spectacular. The best part is that you can buy each of the carbon fiber components on the car, from the front spoiler to the rear quarter panel extensions. “They are already on the shelf back at Anvil in Los Angeles,” Anvil’s Tyler Beauregard told us. He also mentioned that they will be producing carbon fiber parts for different years of Mustangs as well. “1969 and 1970 is what we are starting with, then we are going to work our way backwards. We are going to do the 67-68 then the 64-66.” The carbon fiber parts will be available in three levels including a sportsman series (carbon fiber top side and fiberglass underside), 100% wet carbon fiber (race series), and dry carbon fiber (premium series).

Even without the carbon fiber bodywork the Anvil Mustang would be pretty impressive. A 520 cubic inch aluminum block V8 built by Jone Kaase is underneath the hood producing an incredible 800 horsepower. The car is built to handle as well, with a cantilever SLA-type front suspension from JME Enterprises in San Diego and a torque arm with an inverted watts-link push rod cantilever system from Maier Racing at the rear.

Front spoiler, front bumper, both front fenders, hood, cowl panel, rear deck lid, rear spoiler, rear quarter panel extensions, rear bumper, passenger side cove, driver side instrument cluster. “They are already on the shelf back at Anvil in Los Angeles. “We are going to race it and drive the wheels off of it,” Beauregard told us. “We are going to and do the Optima Street Car Challenge next year.”

The Anvil Mustang also features a Ford 9-inch rear end, 6-speed manual transmission, Baer brakes, one-off EVOD wheels, custom upholstery by Eric Thorsen and a Flaming River power steering system. There are also several cool features that you won’t notice with a quick glance. For example, the factory parking lights have been converted into brake ducts, as have the panel scoops on the side of the car. The body has also been widened by more than an inch both front and rear.
