Ahead of its SEMA Show debut, this 1967 Ford Mustang fastback is already up for auction. Built by former “Top Gear USA” host Rutledge Wood, current “Roadkill” host Mike Finnegan and painter K.C. Mathieu, this Mustang was built with parts primarily sourced from eBay as part of a charity partnership.
Under the Mustang’s hood is a small block mill from Ford Performance that’s stroked and poked to 427 cubic inches. Sitting on top of the engine, and poking through the hood, is a vintage-style stack fuel-injection system from Inglese. The open stacks might not be the best option if you plan to put this Rally Fighter fighter through its paces in the dirt, but it does look incredible.

The custom American Racing wheels and bespoke interior are a few of the parts not found on eBay — and we can’t say we blame the team for going with a custom wheel. The gold paint looks almost like the coating found on vintage magnesium wheels, which adds to the vintage flair. The paint might be a little much for some, but it’s an obvious nod to the American flag suit worn by legendary stuntman Evel Knievel.
According to the auction listing, the team threw over $140K at this build, and with all the custom parts we don’t doubt it. Proceeds from this SEMA show car will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation — so, you can feel like you’re supporting a good cause while you’re ripping around in this pony car.
The auction will run through the SEMA Show, which means you can check out the car in person at the “Ford out Front” exhibit at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The auction ends at 2 p.m. on Nov. 2 — so stay through SEMA and drive it away.
