Tony Finaldi always wanted a wicked street machine, and with its swooping body lines and aggressive demeanor, a '67 fastback Mustang meets the criteria. Tony kept a watchful eye on the local swap meets, classifieds, and neighborhood yards, but it wasn't until his cousin Vince had finally decided to part with his own project car--conveniently a perfectly straight, one-owner '67 fastback with the original paint and interior and little-to-no rust--that Tony was able to begin work on the car of his dreams.
Tony managed to curb big-dollar spending by completing the majority of the work with his father, Pasquale, who's had plenty of experience wrenching and spraying the glossy stuff. The pair fogged the '67 with a dark blue pearl hue and had Corona Customs in Norco, California, apply the flames. Complementing the exterior is a timeless set of eye-tantalizing American Racing Torq-Thrust II wheels. Inside, the deluxe interior has been restored to stock with the addition of Auto Meter gauges to monitor the potent 347ci stroker motor that's now residing between the fenderwells.
Within the span of two short years, the Fastback had been resurrected from the project-car graveyard and changed into the killer showpiece you see here. Above all, Tony's '67 is a prime example of what a gearhead family can produce without going broke. We just wish we could have had first dibs.
