They start from this...
.... and end up with the that car on the right,
yes it is the same car indeed, but a thorough change of most components
inside and outside. It still preserves the classic look, but is a driving
machine at its best.
From this point of view you can better judge the
perfect paint job, that needs to go with the flat modern colours.
The interior corresponds to the brute outside
look, mean and simple, yet a professional working place for the ice cool
New ideas for the rear end and lightning may
find deaf ears for some, but may at least get you thinking about your own
vision of something different for your order at Impatient Customs Creations.
These are owner requested mods, whatever you want to see on your car, ICC
makes it happen most probably. At least this was said on a signboard.
Again a flat black car from SVP with a modern
Ford racing modular engine. The booklet that was with this car described the
tough way of getting the chassis ready to accomodate the engine and the
structural enforcements necessary for a convertible.
yesterday - custom creations is the trend...
... Individuality on a top level
know it is not the terrain of most of us average Mustangers, but those new
custom creations are still worth to look at for some idea or details that may
influence your next modification on your own car.
There is more than one company around focussing on the typical upgrades and
body kits for your Mustang to make you stand out. Individuality has been
promoted with several customized show pieces like the Raptor, Anaconda or many
other SEMA Mustangs.
The Mustangs from Impatient Custom Creations are really extraordinary and
attracted quite a crowd, although you could feel there was some invisible sort
of barrier in admiring the artwork instantly.
But you have to understand that these are customer requested cars. ICC creates
custom cars for customers that want something special. You can sketch or write
down what you want and they will built it for you. Individual custom Mustangs
- Design them as you like them. Ford inspired.
Modern Mustang technology has advanced a lot and merging this with our classic
breed of Mustangs is a natural thing. Don Lyons from ICC seems to have some
understanding of the needs of his audience and has created some (yet) very
unique idea carriers for modern custom work on Mustangs. We show you a few of
them right from th e 45th. here.
With new colour technics flat colours like ice blue or flat black became very
popular colours for custom cars. One could of course say that this flat black
is a 34 Hot Rod Ford colour, but it's indeed a more modern hue of flat black
that withstands finger prints and other air pollution oddieties much better
with its modern paint formula. It's not cheap to apply such colour on your
Mustang with the same even dull surface all around, so forget about doing it
in your driveway.
Not really 50 states legal, if you've heard the
news about the colour preferences in California recently :)
Modern 4,6 or 5,4 litre Ford racing engines make
their way into classic Mustangs more often. It's not an easy drop-in as you
can picture from the missing shocktowers, but it's one big step to a
high-class custom job for the impatient ones.
Another radical Impatient Custom Creations Mustang is this 1968 silverfrost
Even if you don't like the appearance from this view, the car has several
details to explore that might fit your own custom ideas like the mirors,
grille or headlight covers.
The insight is modified, yet still has a classic look with modern accents.
Visible are big changes in the engine bay, if you
look close at the side fender walls.
The Eleanor is almost dead, but this was one
customized convertible that integrated a few parts of it with taste. A well
There were more customs to spot on the ground, but yep, I need to do another
20 stories at least:)
