1971 Ford Mustang "Pegasus" by Goolsby Customs

The 2011 SEMA Auto Show was undoubtedly a Mustang and Camaro free-for-all with tons of tuning packages for both models. Most were for the current generations of each, but there were some tuners with an eye for a classic, and Goolsby Customs was one of them. This tuning firm understand that an oldie is still a goodie so they based their "Pegasus" package on a 1971 Mustang .

The problem with trying to modernize a classic is that, most of the time, there isn’t much left of the original once the transformation if complete. In this case, the Pegasus has received a compete makeover. The old chassis has been replaced with a new one from the new Fast Track Mustang designed by the Roadster Shop. The front has been shortened by six inches, while the rear end has received a pass-through spoiler. The car has also been given a new set of Nutek wheels combined with Wilwood brakes.

The original 4.1 liter engine was also tossed out the window and replaced by a new 5.0 liter V8 Coyote engine. There is also a new Ford 6R80 6-speed automatic gearbox built by Sean Hyland Motorsports.

It looks perfect! The tuner of this vehicle is really great! They truly did turn this vintage into a modern vehicle! Moreover, it’s great as well that they use an impressive and awesome engine on this.

I will surely be looking forward to determining the other great features of this Pegasus and most especially the makeover that they do with it. I am hoping that they would also update the engine of this classic car.

V8 engine has been already quite good for this muscled car, and I would admit that I also admired this vehicle for being such a simple car but looking very awesome! Well, I just hope that the interior of it is impressive also.

I wonder if the interior of this Pegasus also looks so outdated? Anyway, I have to agree that this vehicle is one the most attractive vehicle of the Mustang and its engine output is already quite impressive on it.

Pegasus is one of the most impressive Mustang vehicles that I saw today even though it looks so outdated on its platform. However, I must say that it only adds more appeal to it for being a vintage car. smiley

Pegasus is really looking so oldie but still goodie! smiley Well, I can’t wait to see the final makeover of this one. I hope that they are still using an impressive and powerful engine on it.

I really love the modern version of muscled cars! And this Pegasus is truly looking so attractive on its classic but hot platform design and styling! I’m impressed either on its V8 engine.

This new Mustang vehicle is truly looks so awesome, although it also had the same detailing and styling on the other Mustang car. Anyway, I’m still glad that they use an impressive engine output for this.
