1932 Ford Roadster 502/510 HP - Muscle Cars BlogRK Motors Charlotte offers this awe-inspiring powerful 1932 Ford Roadster with 502/510 HP. Such fancy hot rod is estimated at US $119,900.00 and here are the details with many photos! Check out the car description quoted:

In the world of modern hot rodding, a top notch build is all about components and pedigree. That’s why Boyd Coddington was dubbed ‘The Hot Rod King’. He had an uncanny ability to take a vintage car and radically transform it using custom fabricated components and a keen eye for outrageous design. During the 90s Coddington hired a talented young designer by the name of Chip Foose and together they would create some of the most timeless and unique hot rods ever put on four wheels. Based on the Boydster show car originally penned by Chip Foose, this spectacular 1932 Boydster roadster features the absolute best of everything from its custom pearl flames to its fully chromed 502 Ram jet engine; and in addition to being a feature car in American Rodder magazine, has taken home trophies from some of the most exclusive hot rod shows in the country.

1965 Ford Mustang Station Wagon 5.0L - Muscle Cars BlogThis is another incredible car, auctioned on eBay for US $59,900.00. The mythical Mustang wagon—it has persisted since the earliest days of the Mustang, and even Ford had proposals on the drawing board. However, it appears that the first Mustang wagons were not built by Ford at all, but rather by Intermeccanica at the behest of the W.J. Thompson advertising agency. Constructed in 1965, the car may or may not still exist, but photos and magazine articles from the period still exist, and have inspired a few talented craftsmen to try their hands at creating their own Mustang wagons. This particular 1965 Mustang wagon was built by Joe Ramp and uses as many factory components as possible to create one of the most unique and eye-catching Mustangs you’ll ever see.

Restomod ’67 Shelby GT500 Mustang - Muscle Cars BlogEngine swaps have been around as long as there have been different manufacturers making a variety of models. Whether it’s putting a flathead V8 in your Model A Ford, or injecting some modern power into your aging musclecar, an engine swap can define an entire vehicle. Such is the case with this spectacular 1967 Mustang that’s dressed up like a Shelby GT500 and packs a 2004 Mustang Cobra power plant under the hood. That means 32 valves, a supercharger, and drivability that they couldn’t imagine back in the good old, bad old days.

The rest of the car was updated as well, but the basic goodness of the Mustang shape was retained, along with the very best Shelby upgrades, creating a Pro-Touring fastback that has to be seen to be believed. Built by the guys at Pro Touring Super Cars (a division of Speed, Inc.), this was a cost-no-object car from the beginning. Speed, Inc. specializes in putting late model power into vintage muscle, and bringing the latest technology to bear on the cars of the past. What better way to do that than build a Shelby GT500 tribute with one of Ford’s most potent late-model powertrains? Read more!
