1965 Mustang Fastback built by famous riddler winner Roger Burman from Lakeside Rods & Rides.
This was a clean straight rust free car out of washington state that I bought over 12 years ago. I decided a few
years ago I wanted to build a full blown bad ass pro touring car with no budget. It started by having a custom
fabricated chromoly chassis built by a local chassis shop and then having it powder coated black. Once the chassis
was built the car was sent to Roger Burman in Iowa were the build began.
We first worked with Legendary car designer Eric Brockmeyer to put our and his vision in the design. The main
vision of the car was to build a very clean pro touring car with clean lines and keep it timeless. That's why we
stuck with Black/Black and Chrome. We knew I could never go out of style and would only look better with age.
The exterior of the car has 27 modifications that are almost unnoticeable. We took what already existed and just
really improved it. From the front of the car we lowered the front valance 5" and added a solid black satin mesh
insert. On the sides of the valance we recessed "4 fogs lights and at the bottom of the valance we molded on a
small tasteful lip. The front bumper was narrowed and bolts were shaved. We also shortened the sides about 2 1/2
inches and then backed it into the car for a very tight clean look. There is over $10k in bumpers alone. The grill
received the same black satin mesh and the small 3 fins on each side of the headlights were opened up and received
the mesh also. The trim In front of the mesh was smoothened out and painted black to disappear. The led headlights
are from a new style Harley.
The hood is all steel and custom fabricated with mesh insets custom latch with release from inside and finished in
gloss black on bottom same as top. The cowls and wipers removed and smoothened out. The side rockers we lowered
about 2" for a lower look and to cover up pinch rails and look factory.
The side indentations were factory buy only 1/2" deep. We decided to leave them were they were but just accentuate
them. So from the front of the car we started with the 1/2" indentation and pushed it into the doors gradually to
end up with about a 2" side air pocket by the back wheels. It looks factory and in the air pocket we added a mesh
insert. We even created a small vent all the way through to cool the back brakes.
Door handles and locks shaved with remote windows and trunk. One billet mirror painted black to match the car. The
side grill vents were frenched in also. Baer 6 piston brakes and 14" rotors.
Wheels are custom made by FORGE LINE. They have chrome step lips with a concave powered-coated gray center and a
center lock. No bolts. Fronts 19/9. Rears 21/11.
Wheels $11k alone.
The back of the car received a small 1 1/2 molded in wing on trunk. Custom made gas cap cover with a satin Mesh
The tail lights are custom made to look like the factory ones just much more modern with LED lights behind. Bumper
completely cut up and reworked to sit flush to body. Rear valance was lowered to match rockers with a license plate
insert. Custom powder coated exhausts.
Every single piece of the body was reworked and refitted with the straightest and smallest gaps possible. 1 million
times straighter and tighter body lines then when it came from the factory. The paint is the deepest black mirror
finish you have ever seen! The body lines from every angel are insane!
The interior on this car is just as nice as the outside. It's all custom but very clean and not all complicated.
The dash is custom made with only 2 classic instruments gauges one for speed one for RPM. There is a small 3rd
gauge bellow dash showing gas, oil, ect. Behind the two gauges in the dash there's black satin mesh with
unnoticeable A/C vents coming through. On the passenger side there's also a black mesh insert with hidden A/C vents
behind. Top of the dash is finished in leather and suede while the front of the dash is finished in gloss black.
Ididit tilt steering column with a painted black MoMo steering wheel. A custom gloss black center column was made
with two hidden doors that hide all the gauges like Stereo , A/C,
