We always love it when car enthusiasts get creative, throw the so-called rules out the window. Of course there are always going to be vehicle and brand purists who are always protecting their beloveds. And that doesn’t necessarily work for everyone, and why should it?
This new video from eGarage tells the story about Beau Miklethun, his Gulf liveried 1968 Ford Mustang. From the outside, yeah, it looks like the classic Mustang with that famous paint job.
But under its hood lies the turbocharged inline-six engine, donated by the Toyota Supra. Meet the Gulfstang. Now we get this may not be everyone’s cup of tea, we honestly don’t mind that its owner opted for this engine instead of the American V8. It’s something different and we admire Miklethun’s awesome attitude towards vehicles.
He’s simply the real car guy who loves cars, including the Mustang, but isn’t entirely devoted to it, meaning he’s not afraid to drop in the engine he feels is right for the particular build.
As for choosing the Gulf livery, the classic Ford GT40 die-cast model on his desk provided the inspiration for that. No doubt this dude has gasoline flowing through his veins.
