Originally introduced in 1969 to compete with Chevrolet’s V8 Camaro, the Ford Mustang Boss is a high performance variant of Ford’s mainstay model. Recognized as one of the most sought-after American muscle cars, the rarest iteration comes in the form of the aluminum 494 – a model designed specifically for Mario Andretti‘s Can Am series race car – as only 10 were made. Fixated on merging classical design with modern-day technology, hot rod fabricator Bodie Stroud redesigns the Mustang Boss 494 for the SEMA Car Show in Las Vegas. With 777 horsepower under its hood, this remake transforms from a unibody to body-on-frame layout for better handling and resembles early funny cars with its chopped and lowered construction. The above five-minute video installation follows Stroud on his design process from sampling to Andretti signing the finished motor.
