Retrobuilt Mustang Conversions

A few years ago I stumbled across a company called RetroBuilt (www.retrobuilt.com).  They take a modern Mustang and sort of re-skin it into an older looking classic such as a 1969 Mustang Fastback  or Shelby GT 500 CS Fastback.  Their transformations look stunningly beautiful.  I whipped out my Photoshop skills to show the comparison.  Unfortunately the process costs more than the original donor car with the basic ’69 Fastback running $36, 475.

I contacted them and asked if they offered this as some sort of kit however they said no.  It was just too intensive and takes real metal fab to create it, hence the price.  I don’t know if anyone can justify the expense for something that is purely cosmetic. It is just your Mustang under all that new sheet metal.  However it is so extremely beautiful.  So although nobody can afford it lets just sit back and view the car porn.
