Pro touring can be pretty amazing when it's done right.
The world of resto-modding is fraught with peril. To simply restore an old car is always a lot of work, but it doesn’t provide much of a creative outlet. And so we have resto-modding, and its slightly more serious cousin, pro touring. This is where the old car is restored but also modified, either to change the appearance or to improve performance. It is, of course, easy to get this sort of thing wrong, as people can get very touchy about modified classics.
Thankfully there are some who specialize in this kind of thing, and one such shop is The RestoMod Store in Independence, Missouri, a suburb of Kansas City. It is this shop that has given us the car you see here, called the Snakeskin Viper Green ’67 Fastback. The Mustang has been given a 2012 5.0 V8, which has also been supercharged. The old rear suspension was ditched in favor of an independent setup, a Pro-G IRS from Heidts. Other than that, there isn’t much to say apart from that it’s quite green.
