Compliments of Demonizer67 @ www.pro-touring.com
I thought I would post the final build of my 67 Mustang - I call it the "DEMONIZER"
Newbie Note - I am new to posting, so if anyone has any suggestions on how to better post the pics & text, that would be great - Im gonna dive in & see if I can figure this out - starting with some random pics of what I've been doing the last few years.
I have been working on it for about 3 years now years & wanted to get some feedback & share ideas with other people building modified classic Mustangs.
I started this project after my last 67 got T-Boned in 2006.
First I built the whole car on paper - figuring out what I wanted to do, what parts & style I liked, etc... I established a whole library of stuff.
Then I starting purchasing all the parts while starting all the fab & pre-assembly work.
Over the past 3 years I have had every aspect of the car mocked up & apart a dozen times or more to the point where if I added a battery, oil & gas it would run - all in the name of getting everything just right.
Then I put on the rotisserie & had at it for about 10 months stripping, scrapping, cleaning & fabricating that last of it.
Now it is at the paint shop being cut & buffed out. I should have the body back in a few weeks. I have painted all my other parts, brackets & stuff & pre- assembled all the sub components - the car should go together quick & easy like a model kit!

Some more test pics of the Demonizer.
I am basically figuring out how to post the progress of the build, including captions for the pics & the best way to upload the text & pics - any help would be great. Im just stumbling along here as I test uploading some pics & stuff.
I purchased a 67 coupe body from a friend in the Mustang Club. It was just the body, no engine, no trans no interior, no seats, no hood - just a rolling body. My plan was to strip it down and use all new parts or grab parts from the smashed mustang if they fit the build.
The idea for the Demonizer was to completely re-engineer & re-design the car to my liking - maintaining the classic muscle car style & lines of the 60's era, but updating everything else like a high end street rod - a Mustang Street Rod!
The pics show the car as it first arrived at my house, then a few pics at various stages of the fabrication & pre-assembly of everything up top the full rolling mock up - in no particular order.
- Underside all mocked up
- Engine compartment
- Interior mock up - sort of
- Gauge panels with the Sport Comp II LED series
