Although the car was completed six years ago, Randy mixes things up when necessary to keep the overall look current. The fastback used to have taillights off of an ’05 Mustang, but when they started looking dated, he swapped in a set of ’69 model taillights. This change also required installing a ’69 model taillight panel.
As no surprise, swapping a ’69 Mustang front clip onto a ’70 model is rather straightforward. Just get a ’69 hood, fenders, grille, and headlight buckets, and you’re in business. The flat black hood adds a nice balance of contrast.
