1964.5 Mustang Convertible Part of Vehicle Showcase

Mar 17, 2014

A 1964.5 Mustang convertible built by Mo’ Muscle Cars in Conroe, Texas, will be one of more than 50 vehicles on display at this year’s Hotrod & Restoration Trade Show, which is set for March 26-28 at the Indianapolis Convention Center in Indianapolis.

The ‘64.5 Mustang, named “XLR8,” is truly a Mo’ Muscle Car. Rob Bryngelson originally commissioned Tim Meaux, the founder of Mo’ Muscle Cars, to build the convertible. During the project, Meaux passed away, and his son, Blake Meaux, took over the business. Bryngelson left completion of the Mustang to Blake Meaux, and the build became a special project.

The extensive project took more than 3,000 hours to complete. It was built, torn back apart and built again after the paint and bodywork to make everything perfect, according to Blake Meaux.

The Pro-Touring custom features a 2007 GT500 5.4-liter engine with a Kenne Belle Mammoth supercharger. The interior was fully customized, including the dash, console, seats and bezels. The exterior has red custom paint with a modified hood, powder-coated trim, narrowed and shaved bumpers (painted) and Boze Alloy wheels.
