electric classic mustangs?

IF YOU’VE BEEN PAYING ATTENTION, then you’re well aware that a large portion of new automobile manufacturing, reportedly including Mustangs, is moving at a fast pace toward electrics and autonomy. How will that affect the vintage Mustang scene, if at all? And, do you care? Way back in the August 2015 issue of Mustang Monthly we ran a story on Mitch Medford and Blood Shed Motors’ Zombie222 (bloodshedmotors.com) 1968 Mustang fastback, which is powered by two 11-inch electric motors under the hood and delivers 800 hp and a ridiculous 1,800 lb-ft of torque. It has a 10.7-second quarter-mile at 129 mph, 0-60 time of 2.4 seconds (a Lamborghini Huracán takes 3.2 seconds to hit 60 mph, as a jarring example), and no indication—other than a lack of the sound of a…

Saying Goodbye to Our Friend Tony Branda The Mustang world lost a great friend this past August when Anthony D. “Tony” Branda, 71, of Altoona, Pennsylvania, passed away at his residence after a brief battle with cancer. Born in Altoona, Tony was the owner and president of Branda Performance, also in Altoona. Branda Performance (Shelby and Mustang parts) has a long and successful relationship with the Mustang community. As one of Mustang Monthly’s early advertisers, the company’s ad has been a staple of our magazine. Additionally, Branda’s been a major presence at major events like the Carlisle Ford Nationals, numerous SAAC events, and more. If we were attending, we always made it a point to stop in and chat with Tony to get an earful about what was going on in the…

While Mustangs are our forte here, we know many of you love other Fords, like classic F-100s, Fairlanes, Torinos, and more. The folks at Heidts have come out with a full hub-to-hub front suspension solution (and matching rear four-link), using their Superide II IFS for the ’70-’71 Torino. If you’d like to know more, visit heidts.com. We may know National Parts Depot for its classic Mustang parts and great in-stock inventory, but the company has also been working hard to add 1979-2004 Mustang parts to its warehouses. NPD’s 2020-edition catalog of ’79-’04 parts is fresh off the printer. Get yours at your local NPD location or order online now (npdlink.com/catalog/catalogrequest) for free! Due to Hurricane Dorian’s projected path, and for the safety of all attending, the crew behind the annual…

SKIP THE TACH WIRE When converting a factory in-dash tach or adding a modern reproduction Rally-Pac to a classic Mustang, the one installation step that deviates from stock is having to run an additional wire to the ignition coil under the hood to trigger the modern tach electronics versus the OE current-driven trigger. This third wire is necessary for the tach signal but can be unsightly under the hood, especially on a concours-level Mustang. Help comes from the folks at Orlando Mustang with their new TWE, or Third Wire Eliminator. This nifty compact conversion box allows for installation of these modern tach electronics while keeping all wiring changes to the interior where they can be hidden in the dash.

barn-find mustang fastback purchase interrupted by thieves results in a handshake deal

THAD LANDAICHE COULDN’T BELIEVE HIS LUCK WHEN HE FOUND A 1966 K-CODE MUSTANG FASTBACK. However, on his way to get the car, his luck would change—somebody stole his F-250 Ford diesel truck, car trailer, and even the Ben Franklins stowed inside his suitcase to buy the barn find. Thad lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. His Mustang K-code adventure began a month earlier when he drove 460 miles to the Texas Motor Speedway for the Pate Swap Meet, where he met Alan Piper. Piper told Thad he was ready to sell a 1966 K-GT fastback and a 1964½ convertible, which had been stored for 30 years. Thad and his buddies followed Piper’s directions to Terrell, Texas: “Down a service road, onto a gravel road, you will see a cattle gate; drive through…
