There’s A ’96 Mustang Underneath This Weird, Retro-Looking One-Off



How much would you pay to be different? One custom car builder thinks $34,000 is the right asking price for his creation, a retro-looking two door convertible based on a fourth generation, 1996 Ford Mustang.

According to the eBay ad, this is named the Sabre SixTen and is an one-off, which is good if you want something exclusive. On the other hand, well, let’s just say that it won’t win any beauty contests. At least a lot of work went into it, so we’ll give its creator that.

The design of the fenders is meant to resemble that of cars from the 1930s, but there’s a modern touch in that there are no door handles, as the doors open via remote control.

Other features include the retractable number plate, which slides underneath the car at the push of a button, an electric folding top, body-color fiberglass tonneau cover for the backseat, leather seats and standard air conditioning, cruise control and bluetooth stereo. The ad specifies that this is indeed a street legal car.

As for where some of those parts come from, you’ve got the fog lights from a Mini Cooper, a Jaguar front grille and rear lights from a Volvo XC90, only placed horizontally instead of vertically.

The interior, on the other hand, hasn’t been modified too extensively. You can easily tell you’re in an old Mustang, even with the dual-tone aesthetic and custom badges.

As for what powers this one-off, that would be a V6 engine (we assume it’s the fourth-gen Mustang’s 3.8-liter unit), driving the rear wheels via a 4-speed automatic gearbox.

So, would you be willing to fork out $34k for something like this, or would you rather spend your hard-earned elsewhere?
