Posted on: October 21st, 2010 by goolsby 26 Comments

Project PEGASUS is another build for local customer William (Buddy) Shores.  As a follow up to the 1967 Chevelle, Goolsby Customs and Buddy wanted to build a mustang and really wanted to raise the bar ths time ,but wih the recent boom in the 1969 to 1970 mustang body style a decision was made to try and bring some life and “coolness” to an otherwise forgotten and somewhat “less than desireable” 1971 fastback. To accomplish this goal the extremely talented Ben Hermance was brought on board to design the exterior and interior with a modern concept car feel. The build consists of shortening the front end 6″ and shortening the wheelbase 1″ and completely redesigning the rear end with a pass through spoiler and laid down rear glass. The custom body will be mated with the Roadster shops all new Fast track mustang chassis riding on 19″ and 20″ Nutek wheels and Pirelli tires. The heart of Pegasus is the all new 2011 coyote 5.0 mustang motor and 6 speed automatic transmission from Sean Hyland Motorsports. The modern interior will be stitched  by the talented crew at M and M interiors.Some big name sponsors have really stepped up to help out with this project such as: Roadster shop , Pirelli tires  , Nutek wheels, Vintage Air  , Classic Instruments , Wilwood Brakes,and several more still to come. Check back often as we will be updating this build all the way up to the debut.
