Click above image to view a gallery of the Flashback Mustang

Classic Design Concepts has announced it will be debuting two of four new Mustangs targeted towards baby boomers at the 2007 SEMA Show. The first is a recreation of a base 1967 Mustang using all Ford licensed products with a few extras thrown in. The second, which is CDC owner George Huisman's personal car, is codenamed "Flashback" and features classic styling with modern amenities. Far from being a simple restoration, the Flashback is actually a brand new car built from the ground up. It features a Dynacom Ford-authorized body that has been altered by Classic Design Concepts with a modified front fascia, fog light package, bright mesh grille, rear fascia, and functional lower side vents. The best part is that the Flashback isn't a one-off show car. Customers will be able to order full Flashback Mustangs directly from Classic Design Concepts.

The base car comes with a 302 ci V8 engine with 375 horsepower mated to a 5-speed transmission, although a 347 ci V8 with 450 hp and a 5.4-liter supercharged V8 with 600 horsepower are optional. The base package also includes leather seats, air conditioning, a JVC head unit and Rockford Fosgate sound system, stainless steel brakes, and Ford 9" rear end. Four suspension and brake packages are available as well as different hoods, wheels, and even stripes.

      I'm still surprised that these restomod people cant seem to get their minds off of solid rear axles.

      If you want modern equipment, go all the way and put in a 99-04 Cobra IRS:

      I wonder how much this is going to be. I think somewhere around 70k little more?

      Why would anyone buy this? Real honest ass puckering muscle cars are still availiable

      So the body is all new with a "revised front fascia"? Would've been nice to actually have a picture of said revision. Are they hiding something?
        • 7 Years Ago
        I thought the same thing. Looks like they're hiding a huge plastic front bumper to meet Federal crash standards. What a shame; the original-style chrome looks so much better.
        • 7 Years Ago
        I do, however, think it's awesome that they build these from scratch, and don't chop up a real '67 Mustang like other companies do with their modern classics.

        I'm not a Baby Boomer, but with a few minor changes (like original-style wheels), I'd want one.
      • 7 Years Ago
      I remember those when new.
      I do not want one now. I have no wish to relive my childhood.I could care less about impressing my friends and neighbors. I would also need to have it surgically removed to get out of it.

      sweet cars. So these are being marketed as kit cars? right? to get past safety regs? To bad they will be crazy expensive.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Pfft...screw the baby boomers, I'm only 21 and grew up to know true muscle, I want one!, lol
        • 7 Years Ago
        Yeah, I'm no baby boomer, and I would LOVE to have one of these!!!!

      Automatic transmission = useless. Also such a peculiar intake snorkel placement, Cold air from the... wheel well?
        • 7 Years Ago
        Maybe it is just the lack of front shots, but it looks like there will not be a nice big intake hole on the front fascia to accommodate that fender intake. Still, I'm sure that supercharger will find some way to get enough air sucked in.

        "Automatic transmission = useless"

        Agreed, but what does your statement have to do with the manual transmission they're putting into these cars?

        Did you notice the clutch pedal in the pics?
        • 7 Years Ago
        That's a hurst T-handle shifter on a manual trans- not an automatic.

        You can tell from the shift boot, the left lean of the shifter and the undercar shot of the trans (automatics have a pan, this is a manual).

        So your automatic=worthless comment is moot.

      I remember my first car, a new 67 Mustang, 289 auto, air, and am radio. $2,898. Best car, ever......

      Sweet is the word...until you get to the price tag. Then it is probably pickles and saurkraut. Had a 66 years ago. This re-designed suspension will not be as squirrely as the hypo 289 I hope.
