1965 Mustang Fastback

The relationship Addison has with his 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback is quite special, as it’s been his car since he was a teenager. Just about the only thing on the car that was complete when he bought the car? The Shelby GT 350 look-alike paint, so Addison decided to get some mileage out of that improvement and just hasn’t gotten around to changing it.

His father, Don, helped him put the car together to go to school in, and it’s been in the family ever since. Addison’s Mustang has influenced his career, too: he’s currently a competitor in the SCCA Spec Mustang series. “Cost us a lot of tires, a lot of brake pads,” his father says, “but I know it was the foundation for him being a very accomplished race driver.”

Though Addison’s car is not a Shelby GT 350, it’s been treated to a number of serious performance upgrades, including a 347 stroker with “about 430 horsepower and the same amount of torque,” he says. His racing experience means the car’s suspension and brakes have also been overhauled, so that it handles “a lot better”.
