2012 Mach1 Creation

OK, I know this will probably upset the purists out there, but I am 99% settled on building the Mustang pictured in these Photoshop enhanced images from the Mustang Customizer. My argument is that Ford never made a 2012 Mach 1 so I have merely created a concept of what could have been. The design incorporates several styling cues from '69 and '70 Mach1s. There would also be a CAI with tune, Eibach pro plus suspension and Cat back exhaust. I will be quite happy with 400 to 450 HP.

Opinions? Suggestions?

Aside front the window louvers (I've never been big on those) I think it's an awesome idea. I also think it would be sexy in grabber blue.... Then again I'm biased and I think EVERYTHING looks good in grabber blue lol. The purists may not like it but o well, you're driving it not them.

Ditto on the GB. Good idea though. Go for it!

Id tweak the hood stripe to not run off the front of the car and I wouldnt do the white in the rocker stripe or the stripe on the rear quarter. Looks silly with the reflector. Looks good to me otherwise. Got plans for the Interior?

I looked at a slightly shorter hood stripe but it looked wrong to me. As far as the rocker stripe, that is one of the things I am still thinking about. This car has the 401A interior with the cashmere stripe on the seats. I am trying to tie that to the exterior with the off white stripe on the rocker. The '69 Mach 1's also had contrasting accents on the side stripes.

As far as the interior, I really like the stock look for the most part. I will definitely ad a Mach 1 plaque like the picture to the dash. I will probably upgrade the speakers and add a sub. I'm considering a partial carbon fiber kit for the center console and lower dash. I also don't like the ebrake boot and am considering some Redline replacements for both boots. Other than that, maybe some custom embroidered Mach 1 floor mats.

Yep, definitely will do staggered rims. Those are Shelby CS-69 wheels. I am still researching the best tire sizes. I want to keep the sidewalls as close as possible (same overall diameter) while going as wide as possible.

I like it, except you are missing the hood scoop... Other than that, it looks amazing.
